Who Needs a Standing Desk? Not This Guy!

standing desk cartoon

If you’ve been online at all over the past year I’m sure you’ve heard about the standing desk trend. It seems like everyone everywhere is using a standing desk now and raving about how much better they feel, how much healthier they are, etc…

I have to admit, I’ve done my research. And while the idea is tempting, it’s a big change in workflow and routine. Not to mention a not-so-insignificant expense. (Those nifty hydraulic ones are pricey!)

In any case, with all the words being spilled on the benefits of standing, I’m surprised no one has explored what I think will be the next big trend in this cartoon – working on the floor.

  1. Hahaaaaaaa! Funny sketch!

    That might very well be the next trend – laying down.

    As long as everyone finds what works them, it’s all good.

  2. Shifting from sitting to standing up when working is indeed a big change in your routine. But going through such a change is worth it, as you are then gifted with so many benefits once you have adjusted it. If you are just starting out, consider getting a converter that will change your sitting desk to a standing desk in an instant like the http://tinyurl.com/p5jovp9. If this works for you, you can move on and invest in something more expensive.
