Stand while you work. After months of experimenting at home, I recently built myself a "standing desk" for the office.
Building a desk that stands 40" tall required a trip to IKEA for the following components:
I have a bar stool that I'll sit on every hour or so to rest my legs.
Why are you doing this? - quote from my co-workers
While I plan on going into this in more detail in a future post, I have two reasons:
The point isn't necessarily to stand in one place all day: the whole point is NOT to sit. At a standing desk, you can choose your position: standing, leaning, sitting, standing with one foot up, etc... When you sit, you're limited to one posture; when you stand, you have more flexibility.
