Two weeks ago I was developing a lot of tension headaches after working at my desk. I started pining over the idea of a standing desk.
I wanted to be as happy as that girl. I mean, look at how chic she is, with her Apple computer and Zooey bangs and venti-sized Starbucks latte and fancy footrest but surprisingly lame shoes.
But man, standing desks are expensive. I researched all sorts of options, including modifying cheap IKEA desks and whatnot. I whined to my husband, who wisely pointed out that I could probably just build on top of my current desk. I grabbed my nightstand and some cardboard boxes and voila: my standing desk was born.
I've been using this standing desk for about 2 weeks now. I bought a tall bar stool on Craigslist, so that I can rest my legs from time to time while still using the standing desk. I alternate between standing and leaning on the stool pretty much all day. I feel great. Tension headaches are rarely a problem anymore. I am a standing desk convert.
