Want a stand up desk without buying a new desk?

Yes this post is coming on the heels of me talking about my awesome new desk at home…this one is referring to my desk at work.

Everyone has heard how bad it is to sit on your ass all day at work.    Not only do you get fat, but a number of other things happen to your body like organ damage and muscle degeneration.

The answer to this has been the invention of the stand up desk.  And lots of people have adopted this crazy by purchasing special motorised desks that allow them to adjust up and down.   A few hardcore people opt for taller desks that don’t adjust or have taller chairs, but this is a bit too extreme for me.

The alternative solution to buying an entirely new desk is to buy a portable laptop tray that you can adjust and simply set it on top of your desk.   This way you can test out the idea of standing at your desk without making the full commitment of buying an expensive piece of furniture.  Plus it is just easier and cheaper.
