I subscribe to ‘Lifehacker’s’ Facebook page and saw a link to an article about standing desks and then the link to the health risks with sitting too much. This came pretty timely for me… I was at the end of a long day with an aching back from sitting (and as you can see, I have an ergonomic chair!).
I don’t know about you, but I’ve never heard of a ‘standing desk!’ After a few days of my DIY desk (READ: 1 x 8 piece of wood and a box), I decided that I deserved a real standing desk, LOL! Okay, so when I wanted to sit, I ended up forgetting and tripping over the box! I need more junk in my office like I need a hole in my head!
So I invested in the VariDesk Pro (best price I saw was on Amazon). I got the pro because my ‘main’ computer (yes I have two, plus a laptop and tablet) is a 27 inch. Dell XPS All-In-One computer that is pretty heavy and I didn’t want to take any chances. It came in one piece (read IDIOT-PROOF assembly).
I surprised myself by really liking how easy it was to raise and lower. So, how much do you sit? Have you ever heard of this type of thing?
