The new killer it seems is sitting. Studies are popping up everywhere and being cited by such publications as The New York Times, The Globe and Mail and dozens of other news outlets about the dangers of sitting for too long.
Long before these studies came out I have always wanted a stand-up desk. It just makes sense to me, I don’t feel as good or think as well when I’m sitting as when I’m on my feet. In August, Forbes posted this article with some great looking options for stand-up desk. All of which look pretty attractive, are functional and are pretty much out of my price range. Besides, I just bought a desk from the antique mall down the street that goes with my metal bookshelf (purchased from a neighbor who was moving to LA.) I love my metal desk for several reasons, one being it is big, two: it’s retro and cool, three: it reminds me of my dad – who had a similar style desk in our garage when I was growing up.
So I won’t purchase a stand-up desk anytime soon, but I created a hack that, is super functional and makes me really happy!
