Like most people in IT, for that matter anyone that is tied to a desk for work, I have noticed that I am achy and uncomfortable after a few hours of work sitting at my desk. I've also read the studies that have shown that working at a desk is a sure fire way to reduce the longevity of my life.
I have tried stretching and getting up and walking around regularly. That helps but it hasn't solved my achy problems.
After reading many posts and study results I am convinced that standing and walking desks are a good solution to the problem.
Phase 1 of this is a standing desk. I am planning on using my standing desk for 1 month to see if I like it and if it helps comfort. I am going to use it at least half of the day every day that I am in the office.
The standing desk that I have is a Jaco SL that I modified slightly. I removed the monitor stand, keyboard tray and PC tray.
Phase 2 will come next month (or whenever I find a cheap treadmill).
I will update with my progress.
