Standing Desks

I’m in a work environment where some people sit and some people stand. This is the first time I’ve really seen this, as I’m accustomed to sitting in a leather-lined throne with solid gold ornaments. But aren’t we all?

It’s argued that standing whilst working is better for health than sitting, although maybe not as better as a treadmill desk. I have to admit that it feels a little faddish to me. But then maybe I just need a really good pair of shoes.

In lieu of a standing desk, I do something radical: I get up frequently and walk around the floor. Or maybe go outside. Or both. And I walk a fair amount anyway. But… am I alone in this? Is everyone else standing up?
