Standing Desk

Day 1.

In the past few days I have been hearing about and reading about Standing Desks.

My chair which is now two years old has lost it cushioning effect. I am obese and spend a long time on my laptop. Have been thinking for a while I need a new chair, along with thinking I need to get off my ar** and spend less time sitting in front of this screen. So, I know how that works. I start of with good intentions and we have been walking more, however it’s not enough, I am addicted to the internet and I getting uncomfortable on my chair.

So, after having a look at what was available (buy a new desk rather than chair) I see that Ikea do some good ones.
Then I realise that one that is mentioned is actually the desk I am using! I look and see that my desk can be easily converted. So, this morning, my husband has done the deed and I am now standing at my newly positioned desk writing this blog.

My newly adjusted desk
I hope you can see it in all it’s glory, I know that the photos tend to get cut off on here. I’ve turned my desk round so I can look out into the garden. The downside for Mark is I can see him if he slacks off in his gardening πŸ˜‰

I knew from my reading that this is a tiring position for a few days and I also know I need to keep my legs moving to prevent pooling of blood in my veins. So, to combat this standing still, I am listening to some Ska music and when I am not typing, having a little dance.

Oh and one more good thing (there are so many), I have turned my desk around and am looking straight out at the gates! So, even more security πŸ˜€

So, I can see the gates are shut, so no need for a reminder.

I shall be slyph like by this evening, and very very tired.

a bientot.

  1. Aren’t Slyphs one of the species of bad types from Dr Who ?

    • I expect you’re correct. You should have seen how I’d spelled it earlier! Lots of light pouring through the open window which I am facing.
      Sylph is what I meant and I’ll leave it now, since your comment will not make sense if I correct it.

  2. I have both sitting and standing desks. Which suits me well, since staying in one place is not among my forte!

    • Whilst checking my Spam for Ham I came across your post Roy.
      Thank you for your feedback. I am moving between here and sitting reading my Kindle, or cooking, or cleaning. Much more active which is what counts.

  3. Reblogged this on musings from outside the asylum and commented:

    I’m still standing 2 years on.
