Rose: My Standing Desk

I have big news in the world of work-life balance. My office bought me a standing desk! A couple of my coworkers recently added this adjustable Varidesk to their offices. This black box moves up and down, depending on whether you want to sit or stand. I’m pretty much addicted.


I’ve wanted a desk like this for a long time. I have chronic lower-spine issues as well as occasional back problems (mostly from running). When I learned this was an option at work, I quickly went to my physician to get a doctor’s note.

I’m not ready to post a review … yet. I need to break this in! But my initial reactions: I am way more focused when I stand and reach deeper levels of concentration. However, my feet really hurt by the end of the day (I need a mat — these carpeted concrete floors are hard on the feet!)

Stay tuned for an official review in the next week. And happy standing! 🙂
