"I sit all day at my desk while working"
"Wow, OK, so I should find a way to stand all day"
"So, have a workspace that easily allows me to switch off and on between sitting and standing throughout the day?"
If spending a lot of money on a standup desk isn't in the cards, here are 5 great options to set up your workspace to allow sitting, standing, AND walking as you work
#1. Retrofit! Search around the house to find suitable modification opportunities for your current desk.
#2. Search out other areas of the home that might already be the perfect height
#3. Build your own adjustable desk for under $50!
I searched around for a great way to build an adjustable height desk. Here is a video example of how to build one for under $50.
#4. Retrofit your treadmill to a WALKING workstation
#5. Walk and talk
We all know it, but our phones, Bluetooth, and wireless technology remove all excuses, and allow for a lot of business to be conducted while walking away from your desk! Your standing and/or walking workspace could be your hallways, staircases, deck, driveway, sidewalk, and yard. Your muscles and joints can't tell if you have a $1000 adjustable desk, or a $3000 treadmill desk! As long as you are up and walking, gravity acts the same. Adopt this healthy habit wherever you can fit it during the day! Look for opportunities, and they will show themselves, whether at home or at work! I'll leave you with the infographic below with benefits of walking meetings. Until next time!
