My work space

I just got one of those sit/stand desks. I was planning to get myself a desk after moving into our new home because the rental already has a desk and with all of our furniture here + rental house furniture it feels a bit like we’re living in a furniture store. However it’s school holidays at the moment and I’m no longer cycling to and from school twice a day and I was sure I was at risk of developing bed sores from sitting for so long. It was also starting to drive me a bit nuts sitting in a chair hour after hour each day.

Here’s my new desk:

There are supposedly health benefits to using these desks but health benefits aside, there’s also a cool button which lowers and raises the desk, offering hours of entertainment:

  1. Wow, neat, I am also sitting much too much. let us know if you like on a long term.

    I guess the key is to make sure the kids do not play with the buttons while you are working?

    1. I’ll write a review about it in a month or so. I haven’t even done a full day yet as I only got it yesterday. I’m sure there will be periods where I’m too tired to stand and want to sit down.

  2. Love it 🙂 Have often considered one of these desks myself. Perhaps you have provided the inspiration I need. You have a nice setup.

    1. Thanks. It’ll be even nicer once we move into our new home as I won’t have to share my office with rental house furniture as well. I don’t like things really cluttered.

  3. Yeah, that button feels very entertaining for some reason. I don’t have that desk but I get to play with those buttons once in a while whenever I manage to get my hands on unused standing desks at work. 🙂

    1. I didn’t realise these desks had a button to raise and lower. I thought it was a more painful and manual process to change the height. The button is fantastic.

  4. Hope you enjoy your new desk. Very impressive and tidy as well!!

    We have sit/stand desks at work. I find that if I really need to get my head around something difficult, I need to sit. Otherwise I try to stand as much as possible. I’ve probably lost a few years of life as a result of sitting at work for decades. 😦

    1. Was it a difficult change when you first got the standing desk? Did it require some getting used to?

  5. I am sitting down way too much with writing and blogging and don’t like it one bit. I go for walks and get up and stretch, but it’s not enough. I’m curious to know what you think of this sit/stand desk Rachel, I am seriously having a re-think…
