we all sit for long hours on a chair

I recently switched to a sit/stand desk and it has done wonders for me! I started by standing only part of the day and now I stand all day. My back no longer gets sore and my neck doesn't get stiff. Standing seems to align everything how its suppose to be for me. Highly recommend trying some mix of sitting and standing when you are starting out.

 

Standing desks sounds like a great idea, but I can’t stand up for over 20 minutes or I get terrible feet pain. I can walk for hours, but I can’t wait in line for a coffee or in a bank.
I’d be interested in trying one of those walking desks, with an integrated treadmill. Maybe it would be too much movement to focus properly? I don’t know.
Either way, stopping work to stretch and look out of a window at least for a minute every hour (I do every 20 minutes for 20 seconds) is great for back health and eye health as well!

 

Never been able to do stand-desks. The entire time I'm standing, my concentration is reduced by at least 70%.
