Do you spend too much time at your desk?
I know I do. Ever since I started blogging and my online world expanded, I spend hours and hours and hours at my desk. Many nights it seems the only time I get up is to grab a snack before finally signing off in the wee hours of the morning.
Shortly after reading an article about the health consequences of sitting for too many hours I came across an adjustable desk in a condo which we were touring.
With the flick of a switch the desk could be transformed from traditional sit-to-work height to the right height for you to stand. That desk immediately went on my must-buy list.
Stand-up desks are the new thing - and for good reason. Between office jobs and hours online at home many of us spend way too much time sitting down. For me, the hours I spend at night added to time in the car and at my desk at the office add up an unacceptable amount of sit-down time.
You'll find loads of posts about and photos of homemade standing desks online. I'm opting for the adjustable version so I can alternate standing with sitting.
Switching to an adjustable desk is definitely on my to-do list for 2012.
