If you are looking at standing desks, one of the best options is actually getting one that allows the user to sit or stand. We know the dangers of too much sitting; however there also is a danger if you are standing all day long. Standing for hours not only causes extreme fatigue, but issues with blood flow can also result. The ideal solution is the ability to stand when you have energy, and then sit when you get tired. For myself, I like to stand at work in the morning for 2-3 hours, and then sit during the afternoon.
To incorporate more standing and movement in one`s day, many office workers have switched either full-time or part-time to a standing desk. A standing desk is commonly a cumbersome and expensive investment. Traditional are similar to full-size office furniture and are as portable as a ton of bricks. They are large pieces of furniture that once purchased rarely move from their setup location. Moving these traditional can be quite difficult.
The possibilities of a do-it-yourself standing desk end with your creativity. You can stack phone books on top of your current desk and place a board on top of them to hold your monitor, and another board and lower stack of books for your keyboard. You can buy wall shelves and install them at the proper heights for a standing desk. So long as you maintain the proper measurements, you have created a the desk.
When sitting, you can use it to prop up your feet but the real benefits are seen when you are standing. If your feet begin to get tired or you simply feel you need to reposition but remain standing, you can simply place one of your feet on top of the foot stool, which is a very natural position for most people, and will help you stay mobile, increasing your energy and productivity.
There are also going to be days when you are too tired to stand all day, and then you will be grateful for the ability to put your desk back to a sitting position. The way this works with a lot of desks is that they have two levels that you can keep them at.
