Working standing up has changed everything for me. I’m up. I’m active. I’m ready for action.
And I’m in good company.
Rumor has it that Thomas Jefferson, Ben Franklin, Leonardo Da Vinci, Vladimir Nabokov, Ernest Hemingway, Winston Churchill and Donald Rumsfeld used standup desks. And I just read that John Adams crafted what some consider his best work – the Massachusetts constitution while standing up.
My crafty husband created one for me that has me standing and looking out over the gardens and chickens in the back.
But you don’t need a handy husband to create such a novel workplace.
Here are three different models that have great reviews and can fit any budget and any workspace:
If your home office is the corner of the bedroom, guestroom or living room, this model might be perfect for you. Light and easy to wheel away into a corner when you’re not working, it makes for a nice standing workstation. All the reviewers say it was pretty easy to put together and works well. It may be a little short – however – if you’re tall.
This one’s a little pricier but still a steal. And if you’re on the tall side you might like the adjustable aspect to this one.
Here’s a great way to retrofit a desk or area of your office to work as a standup and sit down desk. It’s simple to install, simple to use, making it an incredibly easy way to transform your desk and office into a more energizing and good-for you work place. Read through the reviews at Amazon – clearly well loved.
If you’re not sure about making the commitment to a full desk, this might be the best solution for you. This affordable model is easy to put on top of your current desk and transform it for standing.
Work for a few hours this way and then you can simply remove it to return to a sitting position.
I just found out about this beautiful design – lightweight and all you need is a door to hang it on.
It’s easily adjustable. So adept and sneaky, you’ll feel like a ninja using it. Hence the name, Ninja Desk.
If you travel a lot – or even if you want a super light weight and flexible work space, this is worth checking out!
