  • Who's using a Standing Desk sometimes?

    Posted by Kelly on February 16, 2023 at 1:51 pm

    Over the last four years I’ve had an intermittent relationship with a standing desk.

    I have one that I open up on my kitchen table to achieve a nice standing height, or I can put it on my existing desk too. Sometimes I use it, sometimes it serves more as a little table for my grand-baby ;)

    Today I set up on the hightop I have set up in my living room because I liked working in the natural light from the double doors.

    Generally, I do email inbox tasks while standing. I don’t think well on my feet for anything longer than that.

    I love seeing other people using those walking desks but honestly can’t imagine it LOL!

    I have enjoyed doing some coaching on my feet – that’s just with ear buds in, no desk needed ;)

    I’ve looked at them and tested out higher places in my house. Doesn’t work for me. It’s better if I get up and move around. Even better if I take a walk outside.

    I can’t walk and chew gum at the same time.

    I purchased a table for my peloton but haven’t tried it yet.

    I have a makeshift standing desk, and I don’t last very long. Standing still is boring. I can walk with a phone conversation, but anything else feels hard. lol

    I have an adjustable one that I thought I would use all the time. I use it sometimes. But to be honest, I usually lower it and sit. I forget about it.

    Standing still IS boring LOL! *sigh*

    I try daring myself in small doses – or saying ‘No social media unless you’re standing!’ it works a little sometimes. OY
