Do You Work Standing?

72 replies
I've been seeing more and more about desks that you stand and work at.

The idea is that it's much better for you to be standing than sitting all day in a chair.

What do you guys do to prevent sedentary lifestyles as Internet marketers?

I don't know about you, but I get hypnotized working all night in front of the monitor.

I do no-gi jiu jitsu and I love it, but I still have to force myself out of the chair to separate from the computer.

I'm always better off for having done it though!

    It worked for Hemingway.

    I have noticed those desks lately. Might be worth giving it a try.

    It's harder to go for my daily walks on the beach when the Florida temps are as hot as they are now. It's easy to get lazy.

      Its difficult to stand and work on a PC - just not comfortable with it.

      Seating all day is bad for health. So what I do is to go for a 4 km walk every day. I always feel refresh after a walk around the Park.

    I have been thinking about this a lot lately, actually.

    I remember reading an interesting thing about professors from long back ago that they were required to stand because sitting and lecturing was too informal. Politics aside, standing does seem to get the creative juices flowing because you begin to add in kinetic activity behind your work.

    Imagine how passionate you can get when you're scribbling across a while board vs. one on your computer. Standing in front of your computer, shifting back and forth and taking a step back rather than staring blankly. There's a lot off inspiration all around us if we take our eyes off the screen and I think that's where the benefit of standing comes in.

    I think if you had a desk at the right height then standing would be ok, probably not all day though. You need a desk that you can easily raise and lower so you can sit for a while and stand for a while.

      The idea was made originally as a way to increase productivity, since the theory says that if you work standing you will get tired quickly which will push you to do the things that really matters instead of wasting time in youtube and facebook ....

        I've started experimenting with the standing desk for a few months. The first 10 or so days is quite painful but after that, I've noticed that my lower back pain has gone away completely. I used to sit 12-16 hours per day coding and the slouching was ruining my back. But I've read that standing too much is not good either so I'll start experimenting with the tread desk soon.

    I do transcription from home for a living on top of my IM Business. I do sit at my desk especially for the typing as I have to use a foot pedal for the audio. But I also exercise daily.

    I've never heard of a stand up desk before. That's new to me. Not sure how I would like that. I suppose if you don't spend hours upon hours at your computer doing your work it might be okay. I'm curious to see what others will say too.

    I am a dog walker, so I get morning and afternoon exercise guaranteed.

    For a while there those kneeling seats where very popular.

    I find the best thing is to do what every uni student does. Only work for 50 minutes, then do a walk around the house or the block or do the dishes etc. Make sure you take time off for morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea. When calling clients get up and walk around while talking.

    Haha. No.

    Don't get me wrong, I can see the benefits to doing so. In fact, I do kind of feel more mentally alert and creative when standing. When sat down, I start to feel tired very quickly. But, despite that, I need to be comfortable ... and standing up, remaining still/static enough to focus on a small slab of light and type for an extended period just doesn't feel natural. When I'm up, I need to be moving. I can only be still when I'm sat.

    • What he said.

      If you think working standing up all day is healthy, ask nurses and waitresses. Many have had to resort to wearing medical compression hose because standing for 8 to 10 hours a day will blow out the valves in your lower leg veins (which normally assist in pumping blood back up towards your heart), which means fluid starts to pool in your lower extremities. In mild cases you have swollen ankles all the time but you can also develop skin ulcers, which are open sores. They are very painful, hard to treat and tend to recur.

      Fluid pooling at the bottom of your legs also makes you very tired. At a minimum you should rest with your feet well-elevated above your heart for at least 30 minutes, twice a day.

      Ignore the popular news items. This working-at-a-standing-desk fad comes around every couple of years and no one ever bothers to point out the health risks.

      Years ago, when I worked in radio, they changed our studio.

      We used to have normal chairs and desks of normal height.

      When they were done remodeling, you could still sit on a stool, but it was really made for working while standing.

      Now, when announcing music, you were standing. As a performer, I felt it improved my performance.

      I know comedians that sit down while they do stand-up (ironically), but I've always had more energy and felt more creative standing.

      Another interesting thing about exercising is how it automatically makes you eat healthier. It's just not natural to eat junk right after you did something so good for yourself.

    One of the best opportunities to stand up is when you're talking on the phone.

    Again, I think the person on the other end can sense your energy.

    If you're doing cold-calling, standing-up may actually improve your results.

    There is a huge difference between standing still in front of the desk and using tradmill desks. Treadmill is set to move at equivalent of 1 mile per hour, enabling you to type and talk without sounding like you just run a marathon. You burn 100 calories per hour and if you are anything like me, you can triple productivity by using those desks.

    You know. People say it's uncomfortable to stand and work, but could that be because they're conditioned to sit and work? I know standing for a long time can be uncomfortable, but I think this is more to do with muscular endurance and posture than anything else - things that wouldn't be an issue if we didn't sit around all the time.

    It's an interesting idea. I might look into one of these desks. I like being more active.

      Use it all day, man, and just have a high chair at the desk to alternative sitting and standing.

        Try the Alexander Technique. It's a way of discovering what your bad habits are and teaching yourself to prevent those habits. It's not a quick fix and it takes time to work but Google it and see what you think.

        There are particular problems with sitting for hours and hours in fron of a computer screen. The screen is like a magnet and it sucks you foward. It's like how a lot of people drink tea or coffee. They drop their head to the cup rather than bring the cup to their lips.

        Try this. When you look at the screen think of the image coming out to you eyes rather than your eyes stretching forward to the image. You don't have to collapse forward to see the screen. Let the world come to you and protect your back.

        Finally what are your feet doing when you are at the desk. Are they stretched out and providing little support or are they directly below the knees, providing support and giving aid to your back.

        Just a few things to think about.

    I recently changed to a standing desk for health benefits/more productivity.

    The health benefits are negligible because I have a pretty active lifestyle but the productivity has been the best part.

    I would always feel tired sitting down in my big, comfy, leather computer chair after a long day on my feet.

    Standing helps keep me alert and awake. It's definitely worth a shot for anyone who feels lethargic in a chair.

    Standing desks are great.

    The thing is, they can let you stand and work at times, and then you can have a high chair so you can sit at other times.

    Varying this is great and I want to get a setup like this.

    I've seen it at my friend's office and he loves being able to stand yet not have to lean down to his computer like at normal desks and then if he gets a bit tired of standing and wants a rest, he can always hop in his chair.

    I think it's better for the body all around, really, and it can probably keep you a bit fresher.

      The other good thing about standing is that it encourages shorter meetings. Who hasn't attended meetings which go on and on? If you get everybody to stand they are likely to be encouraged to make decisions more quickly. So you get two good results - greater productivity and a reduction in boredom.

      That's what I do, but there's a problem.

      I recently read several articles that said your chance of having a heart attack goes up significantly if you are mostly sedentary and then suddenly do vigorous exercise.

      People are like sharks. We're supposed to keep moving all day, that's why that treadmill desk is cool.

      Therefore, the solution is probably to take a break every 50 minutes (like somebody else suggested) and take a walk, do some stretching, push-ups, or whatever will give you a little exercise all day.

    Set schedule to have your daily exercise to stretch that muscles in your legs and arms. Spending too much time sitting in front of a computer will usually results to shoulder pain, backache, neck pain and eventually some headaches. It will be better for you to make some time management to your schedule so you could have time for your ju-jitsu, that will not only takes you away from your chair, but will also develops your skills in the field of martial arts.
    In my case, I do some jogging and walking early in the morning before I start my day, to make those muscles work and will not be stiff with cramps in case I will run, (for errands) lol.

      How'd you know.

      Are you people spying on me!?!?

      I have been contemplating building a treadmill type desk, but as of yesterday realized my kitchen counter is just the correct height to at least stand up at.

      Experimenting with that now.

      I might mod something up at my office too.

      I'm all about efficiency, so I'm hoping this can shed a few extra free pounds.

      I think it might be helping me focus a bit more too.

    I have an electric desk which is height adjustable so that you can sit or stand when you work.

    I was a little sceptical when I bought it 2 years ago, but surprisingly, for someone like myself with back problems, it has been brilliant. Even when I'm sitting down and working, the ability to adjust the height of the desk, by even a fraction, makes such a difference.

    Regular breaks away from the computer are also essential as well as getting plenty of fresh air if at all possible. The secret is to remain focused and not to become overly distracted during the breaks.

    My biggest problem is actually working from home and the fact that nobody really believes I'm working, just playing on the computer and hence, can call upon me at any time!!!

    The idea of a standing desk has been around a long time. It isn't a fad and it makes sense. I use both for variety. The times I use a standing desk, I get more work done because standing is such an active position. When I sit I tend to sort of slouch and then my neck hurts. Alternating between the two gives me more time at a desk than if I was just sitting.

    I also like to use a timer to remind me get up from my sitting desk.

    I also have my kids' PCs up high on the breakfast bar, for example, so they don't learn to slouch early in the game. Maybe the next generation won't be so, um, "chubby" and sick. You might think that's mean but read on to find out why I am so adamant about this.

    I do care giving part time so I help a man put on his $600 compression socks designed to keep his feet and lower legs from exploding from swelling due to his 40 years of sedentary work and no exercise. And no, he isn't diabetic and has no heart issues, just sedentary and obese. His feet are swollen with lymphedema to the size of 5 pound hams and his calves are like 8 inch posts - no kidding. You bet I keep moving!

    Whatever you do, please make sure to get up and move every hour. And do regular exercise... you don't want someone like me to have to put your socks on someday.

    In all honesty, I don't think it changes the way you work. I think you're just going to get tired a lot faster.

    I don't really feel settled when I'm using a standing desk. I used to use them at university sometimes, we had a few in the library. It was only when I needed to spend about 10 minutes or so on something.

    The thing is, I do plenty of walking and exercise, so it's not like I'm unhealthy from sitting at my desk a lot. I can't see myself converting any time soon..!

    I cannot work long time with my computer. I spend half of my time to take care my kids and watch TV.

      I've been using a standing work station for over 15 years. Wouldn't do it any other way. I find I am more focused and get more done, I also don't get tired as quickly. I have a good stool available to use on and off during the day, but mostly stand.
