Again, the dedicated standing desk works for you, though not if you like to use big desktop monitors.

 
My home desktop runs at 4960x1600[^] (that's 2x20" 1x30" monitors); so big monitor space support is an absolute requirement for me.

oing back to the "painful" remark, my experience suggests that going from all sitting to all standing is going to be about as fun as going from all sitting to running a marathon. Start slow and build up to a comfortable routine.

 
Being able to switch gradually, or pretend I will anyway, is a part of why I'm interested in an adjustable desk (the height problem with flatpack products being the other). Also because I have a small apartment I don't have room for two desks even if I was willing to drop several grand on a second set of monitors for the second.

I know a few people who walk or bike while working, but this doesn't interest me at all. It seems distracting, the setup seems inflexible, and I'd much rather work hard, take a break, go out for a walk and clear my head, then come back refreshed for more work. YMMV.


 
I've no real idea how, or if, this would work out for me. Having to spend $$lot$ separately for a treadmill would give major encouragement to my inner procrastinator and cheapskates. OTOH the only exercise program I've ever managed to stick to for a usefully long period of time has been going for long walks around the neighborhood during the daylight months. However between worse than useless levels of street lighting (kills my night vision while not providing enough illumination for safety) and the accumulation of alternately snow or salt/sand on the sidewalks I'm forced to stop every winter and end up gaining back the inch I walked off my waist during the summer and then face the *ugh* I'm so out of shape problem around now when I try to restart. D'Oh! | :doh:
Did you ever see history portrayed as an old man with a wise brow and pulseless heart, waging all things in the balance of reason?
Is not rather the genius of history like an eternal, imploring maiden, full of fire, with a burning heart and flaming soul, humanly warm and humanly beautiful?
