First Week of Standing Desk

Today I started my second week of using my makeshift standing desk. My initial observations are:

My makeshift standing desk is far from ideal. I know my keyboard is about 6” too low. My monitor is as high as it goes but at an angle so I look down at it. Looking down is kind of nice in one way, but I think it would be ergonomically better to have it much higher and looking straight on.

People keep asking me how long I’m going to keep this up. I don’t know. It’s possible my setup is deficient and it won’t be better. I’m hopeful that I hit a turning point this week and my feet feel better and my lower back hurts less. I’ve started stretching occasionally through the day which I hope helps as well.

All in I like it, contrary to the probable tone of this note. I feel like there is a light at the end of the tunnel.
