So a quick update on my standing desk and what I’m doing with it.
After a few days of using it at home, I decided it wasn’t really best suited for there. I didn’t mind standing in the afternoon, but it just made evening gaming miserable. Around 10pm, I just want to sit, thank you.
So I packed it up and moved it to work, and there it’s been a real blessing. It works great with my laptop, and I got a gel pad to stand on. That coupled with my shoes keeps my legs feeling just fine while I do my thing.
It’s better for work too because I am a lot more mobile at church, going to and fro. I have sofas and chairs in my office if I do need to sit, but I am really liking standing to do my reading, writing, and other day-to-day projects. I’ll tell you one thing, you don’t mess around as much when you’re doing work standing. There used to be a danger of just wasting time surfing or farting around on email, and now I’m like BAM! Get this done. BAM! What’s next.
Plus, I take a lot of little walking breaks so that I’m not just standing in one place for the entire time. I don’t know what it’s doing for my health, but I definitely feel more motivated and energized, and I’m getting a lot more done. I’m most productive in the first half of the day anyway, so this is great.
