“Standing desks have been touted as the answer for health problems caused by sitting all day. But the evidence that the high desks improve health — or that they are even used much — is weak.” From: That Standing Desk Might Not Be The Magical Solution: NPR
I actually have a desk that can, if many complex technical operations are performed, be a standing desk. But I refuse. I spent years working jobs where I was on my feet all day, and now that I’m lucky enough to have a job with a chair, I absolutely will not go back to standing unless ordered to. If I’m going to stand, I will stand for my own pleasure, after hours — not for work.
