On February 12 of this year, I made a big (and possibly trendy) move from sitting to standing much of the day at work. I initially wrote about it here and here.
Since then, I have been honing in on an ideal standing desk setup. I incorporated boxes of various sizes, bound reports, and other discarded office treasure to fine tune my standing desk setup so that my monitors were at a good height for my head and neck.
It’s been one month since I started using a standing desk at my j-o-b. While I’m definitely settling in, I’m still surprised sometimes when I walk around the corner in the morning. Oh right, I work at a standing desk all day.
I work in an office, and since last year I have been contemplating a transition to a standing desk, when I began reading articles about how sitting all day is responsible for my slow but certain demise.
Yes, I bike commute. Yes, I run regularly. I ride on weekends. But I do not believe these activities can completely compensate for the hours and hours of sitting I do each day.
