According to exercise scientist John Buckley from Chester University, standing on feet for an extra three hours a-day would help burn off 3.6 kg of fat each year, the Daily Mail reported.

He said that people could switch to higher than normal computer desks to answer their emails and type documents.

Buckley asserted that working standing up for three hours will consume 144 calories and reduce obesity and improve circulation.

He claimed that by making small changes in the workplace such as standing at work place could make long-term improvements to health.

An upright working stance had also been championed by author Ernest Hemingway who wrote his vigorous prose on a typewriter at a special chest-height desk.
