People Standing

Standing is an upright human posture in which the body is supported only by the feet. Often misunderstood as a static position, standing is actually a form of dynamic balance where the center of the body is supported by rocking on the front of the ankle. Standing erect requires a high degree of coordination and control of a persons nervous system and core muscles to maintain stability. The average age in which humans begin to stand is between 8-12 months. Standing is believed to have beneficial cognitive and health impacts and many workplaces are now offering standing desks as a desk option.

Is standing good for your health?

Standing has been proven to decrease the risk of heart disease as standing lowers blood sugar and cholesterol while reducing weight. Standing is also correlated to reducing back pain, increased productivity, higher energy levels, and greater life expectancy.

How long should you stand at your desk?

Experts advise that people stand at their desk between 15-30 minutes every hour (1:4 to 1:3 ratio) to gain the health benefits of standing.

When do children learn to stand?

Children learn to stand without support as early as 8 months, with an average between 10-12 months.

People Carrying Boxes - Combination

People lift boxes either in their personal lives or at work. People lift boxes to move residences. Mailmen or delivery truck drivers lift boxes everyday as part of their job. Some jobs may require their applicants to be able to lift a certain weight of box. When lifting boxes, it is important to lift with your knees instead of your back to prevent back injury.

Human Spacing - Intimate Space
Side elevation drawing dimensioning the various zones of intimate space related to human interactions and comfort zones

Intimate spaces are used for physical or emotional confidential communications such as telling someone a secret, hugging, holding hands, or standing side-by-side. There is a physical distance of 0-2 feet between the individuals, and this space is usually reserved for lovers, close family members and friends, and pets. In crowded urban areas, this space can be broken, like when in a crowded elevator. As this level of physical proximity may be uncomfortable, eye contact is usually avoided.

Intimate space is perceived as having either a close intimate zone or a comfortable intimate zone. A spacing of 0”-6” (0-15.2 cm
) between people is a close intimacy, while a spacing of 6”-18” (15.2-45.7 cm) is a typical zone of intimacy.

Thinking - Men (Standing)

Thinking is an activity that all humans do. René Descartes coined the iconic phrase “cogito, ergo sum,” which translates to “I think, therefore I am,” when searching for a single, undoubtable phrase. Since he was thinking, René Descartes could not doubt that he existed. Thinking is an important step to do before speaking or acting. Speaking or acting without thinking can have undesirable consequences.

Human Spacing - Public Space
Scaled elevation illustration of the various zones of human distances for human separation in Public Spaces

Public Spaces are places that are open and accessible to people. Typical examples include roads, public squares, parks, and beaches. Although government buildings may have some restrictions and closed off areas with limitations, some spaces such as public libraries can be considered public spaces.

While privately owned buildings and property are not considered public spaces, they may affect the public visual landscape. Shared spaces have been recently advanced to better accommodate a pedestrian’s experience in a public space jointly used by automobiles.

The perceived zones of public space are adjustable depending on the situation and the scenario, with a distance of 12’-25’ (3.66-7.62 m) being understand as a common comfortable distance in public between two people. A spacing of 0’-12’ (3.66 m) is considered being too close between strangers in public, while a distance of more than 25’ (7.62 m) is understood as far.
