Quite some time ago I posted an article on my installation of a height adjustable, stand up desk in my office. I still love it and typically start my day by standing up while working. I think my still using it daily is a great indicator that there is value in standing while working, especially considering that I installed this desk over two years ago.
Further to my own experience, I happened across a Wall Street Journal article on standing desks being on the rise in the Silicon Valley. Definitely worth a read, which is why I’m sharing it here. The article mentions businesses, like Google and Facebook, who are supporting requests for stand up desks. It also covers some of the statistics around the health benefits of sitting less during a work day. So, do you think there was an intended pun in their article’s title, “Standing Desks are on the Rise”?
Here’s to everyone’s good health!
