When we moved houses recently, I wanted a stand-up desk for my new office. I was doing too much sitting/slouching/slumping. But I had a few concerns:
- I didn't want to spend a lot of money, since I wasn't sure if I would like using it.
- I didn't want something big, clunky and industrial looking.
- I wanted something I could move if I wanted to, you know, actually sit at my desk.
And so . . . taaa daaa!
Hmm, doesn't look like much. Three pieces of bamboo perched on a desk.
But check this out:
It looks totally precarious, right? But it's not! It's incredibly sturdy! (That being said, I'm still careful reaching for my coffee, etc. I wouldn't go gesticulating wildly near it because, in theory, the laptop could be knocked off.)
I use it at least once a day for a chunk of time. I find some projects are more conducive to using it than others - when working on something where I need to write notes, shuffle paper, etc, I like to sit. But social networking is perfect for standing, since I'm just reading and commenting.
Here's the link for StandStand. It's a great site with clear info. Definitely check out the videos - the one on the Home page and the one on the About Us page. I love the fact that it's Made in the USA, out of sustainable birch or bamboo.
If you give it a try, I hope it works out as well for you as it's working - fingers crossed! - for me.
