Re: Standing Desks - Experience & Recommendations

I would be interested to hear experiences in terms of how much it improves your life quality. Do you think it is a substantial contribution to your daily life/wellbeing?
A friend who has a chic height-adjustable desk at work find this relieves not so much his back as his neck and shoulders. He tries to be more aware of his body and has become fairly good at remembering to adjust the height, for sitting and standing, before the pain sets in. He says he doesn't think he'd actually be able to continue work, long-term, without it.

At home, he's largely able to avoid his pc (or at least he was, pre Corona). About a year ago he decided that he needed a solution for the much reduced times he still spent online, when home. In his case, he decided it wouldn't be worth the outlay to buy an adjustable desk.

Instead, he built a few flat wooden boxes, stackable without being slippery. And he lifts the screen, and slides another one of those boxes onto the stack, or removes one, as he feels the need to shift his own position. Now that he's working from home, he is very relieved to already have had that makeshift solution in place.
