Well! The famous multinational company Apple has a solution for it, it has placed standing desk for employees to aid a healthy lifestyle. Not only do employees get to bask in the surroundings of the handsome, 175-acre complex, but those working in the doughnut-shaped headquarters also get to use standing desks.

Apple's deliberately opaque about the day-to-day goings on in its headquarters, but Tim Cook revealed this tidbit of information in a Bloomberg interview with the Carlyle Group's David Rubenstein published on Wednesday.

Apple's never been very open about the everyday workings within its headquarters but was happy to reveal that workers in the building are supplied with the furniture, which is said to offer health benefits over traditional office chairs.

Employees at Apple's new doughnut-shaped headquarters are being issued with standing desks. The CEO said that many employees who have an Apple Watch use its "stand reminder" feature, which, at regular intervals, prompts you to get up and walk around a little bit.

Now, Peru must hope they can break down France's defence next Thursday, or face an exit from the World Cup after two games. Christian Cueva was reduced to tears half-way through Peru's 1-0 defeat to Denmark after he missed a penalty.

Thankfully the new desks will not be standing-only affairs and can be switched between standing and sitting positions. Apart from this, the common areas and cafes at Apple Park include dotted chairs designed by Nauto Fukasawa along with custom made tables which are 18-foot long oak slabs.

CEO Cook's disdain for sitting for long hours is not new.

If I sit for too long, it will actually tap me on the wrist to remind me to get up and move, because a lot of doctors think sitting is the new cancer. We have a lot of people using the Apple Watch at Apple, and ten minutes before the hour, suddenly they all get up and move.

According to Santa Clara County Assessor Larry Stone, Apple's new spaceship campus might have cost as much as $5 billion. Currently, it is reported to hold some 12,500 employees.
