One week with a standing desk

๐Ÿ•’  Posted

Last week I blogged about my standing desk that I built to mend my distracting back pain. After only a week of using it Iโ€™d like to note my quick observations and the things Iโ€™m doing more often now.

Things Iโ€™m doing more frequently now that Iโ€™m already standing up are:

  • stretching more
  • walking around
  • going outside to get some fresh air
  • drink more water

Because Iโ€™m already standing, there are things Iโ€™d do maybe once a week while sitting that I do on a daily basis now, including move around more, drink more water, and even get outside more. I have a relatively small-sized garden in my backyard and I enjoy looking at the beautiful flowers that are planted there. Above all though, the major benefit to this whole setup is the fact that I havenโ€™t once experienced the back pain that drove me to where I am so far.

There are so many benefits to using a standing desk, but these are just my observations and are to be taken with a grain of salt or two. Let me know how a standing desk has helped your productivity in the comments!
