I worked some 25 years in the building trades. There is precious little sitting when you're in that business. I can remember thinking how nice it would be to have a sit-down job. Then I got a sit-down job. After sitting for hours every day in that job, I came to realize it's not a good thing.
The video above is a short summation of what's so bad about sitting for long periods. Our bodies were simply not created for extended chair sitting.
I left my sedentary job in the prison system five years ago. I sit less now. But I still sit too much, especially in the winter months. So I'm looking to get a stand up desk. They are becoming a thing.
For now, the Jarvis Stand Up Desk (pictured above) is the one I'm leaning towards getting. The Frame Only is Available From Amazon (free shipping with Prime). I can get a top locally.
Adjustable-height electric desks are kind of expensive. But the expense is deductible if you have a home business. I'm waiting to see what my accountant tells me about my 2017 income taxes before I buy a new desk. That's always a downer.
If you are new to the concept of a stand-up desk, this guy explains it...
I'm wondering.... Do any of you reading this have experience with a stand-up desk?
P.S. I have taken the font size of this post down a notch from previous posts. Do you think it is better at this size for viewing? Or is the larger font more agreeable? I appreciate the feedback.
