A few weeks ago, Kyle sent me an article that outlined the benefits of a standing desk. Benefits include, more energy, less risk of disease, better posture, and you burn more calories throughout the day. I have been doing some research on my own and looking into way to make my own standing desk without spending the insane amount of money that one costs. Throughout our office, we have a few people who have rigged their desks to be “standing” and I have asked them their reasoning and how they like it. While they say it is a hard adjustment, you get used to it and they notice a significant difference. A co-worker toured the Google Office out in California when she was there and low and behold…they have Standing Desks! Legit ones…not desks propped up with soda boxes, monitor risers, etc. I’m jealous. Shouldn’t this be an option for people, especially those who work in an office that strives to be “one of the best places to work”?
I am 99% on board with this idea. My posture is awful as I sit at my desk all day. I eat lunch at my desk, so all-in-all I get up around 4-5 times a day (depending how much I am drinking). This is gross to really sit and think about! No pun intended. So, I’m wondering…
-Do any of you have a standing desk?
-What are your thoughts on the idea?
