First post in a long time. Feels good.
Every once in awhile I hear about someone switching to a standing desk. I was curious and did a little research. Most people rave about the experience, mentioning more energy, creativity and less lower-back pain because our bodies aren’t designed to sit for 8 hours in one place. Humans are built to move.
I’m always up for a work-environment experiment so I decided to give it a whirl. I’m typing this standing up right now, and so far it’s great. I’m moving more, stretching more, and … well I’m dancing more too. Who said work has to be boring right?
If you want to give it a shot there are many options depending on your space constraints and your budget.
2x Stanley FatMax Telescopic Sawhorse $35 each (make sure you buy TWO, they’re not sold in pairs)
1x solid, flat, unfinished heavy 32″ door from Home Depot. $55
