First Week of Standing Desk

Please be aware this this blog post was published mulitple years ago. It is very possible that links on this page will not work as intended.

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.
