I suggest a desk that has the ability to go up and down that'll give you the option to stand or sit. Sitting hours on end is just not good for us. These desks are crazy mad expensive but I think they'll pay for themselves in the long run. www.anthro.com


Been thinking about this for a while. I think my next desk upgrade is going to be a stand sit option. Heard good things about these and I think they are a fair bit cheaper than the anthro although maybe it's a case of you get what you pay for http://www.geekdesk.com/

If or when you upgrade your desk, I'd love to get a good first hand review. I want to get one of those Anthro's but can't justify the $2,500 at the moment.

I have also used the "wooden door across two filing cabinets" approach. It works well. Regarding the whole standing desk craze - the majority of people who I've known that tried it ended up back in a chair after a couple of months. Trendy? Yes! practical, not really - or perhaps only for a small percentage of people. Same with the whole sitting-on-an-exercise-ball" trend. Try using a timer to remind you to get up and walk somewhat frequently.

Its all about the running in place/pull ups/sit-ups while rendering my friend. You look like a crazy person but it helps and is better than checking facebook while waiting on renders.

On the cheap, you can make your own stand/sit desk by purchasing some inexpensive single kitchen cabinets and countertop. I wish I still had a stand/sit option, because variety is the secret to comfort. I've torn my left knee in half twice and it doesn't like to spend too much time in one position. Also, for a quick "dash to the desk" it's nice not to have to hunch over for a minute to find what you need.

I worked at a TV station that did my office like this, and I really liked it. The cupboard space was awesome! :)
