For anyone that has ever picked up a SkyMall magazine while sitting a plane, you know that they have some fairly ridiculous items in there that you most likely will never have a need for such as a replica of a sword from Lord of the Rings or a suit-case that kills bed bugs…so it was a pleasant surprise that I actually found a product that I am seriously considering getting for work….a standing desk! Sign me up.
My job involves sitting at a desk all day. Exciting, right!?
One of my co-workers and I decided to try using a standing desk instead, which is really just a tall table that we put our computers on. I feel like it is pretty well known now that sitting all day isn’t all that good for your body. We have been using our standing desk for a couple weeks, and I can say that my back feels soo much better. My feet hurt a bit sometimes depending on my shoes, but I feel 100 times better at the end of the day.
Our next idea is to get a treadmill desk!
Have you ever tried a standing desk? What did you think?
