While a foreign correspondent, I often worked standing up. I find that you remain more alert while vertical, instead of slumping down in a chair. The French newspaper Le Monde famously holds its editorial meetings standing up, which keeps the meeting quicker. Now, I am standing up once again, thanks to a colleague who pointed me to these 138 RMB laptop platforms that you can get from the Chinese e-commerce website Taobao. It is working out really well and allows me to have both a sit-down and stand up desk. An article in The New York Times recently extolled the health benefits of a stand-up desk, while this article compares the dangers of sitting to smoking. I do it mainly for comfort and have not yet invested in an under-the-desk treadmill.

  1. That's neat. A much cheaper option than having a desk with adjustable height.

  4. yes, As of late I have experienced the identical drawback, it's such as the instance when you like to complete couple of things but you do not as the disease will not allow you. Yet when I tested that medicine, I felt perfect. Take it!
