Every hour get up and get a snack out of the machine, then go out and have a smoke.

mdeesnuts: I've had a standup desk for a year. Curious side effect is I don't usually sit anymore unless you're supposed to; eating, watching TV, etc. Can't sit in a waiting room, waiting for a table at a restaurant, I stand rather than sit at a bar. It's strange but I don't feel the need to sit unless I am actually tired.

I've tried a stand up desk, got it was horrible on my feet and strangely my hips.  If I'm going to be on my feet for hours at a time, I want to be doing a fair amount of walking, which is surprisingly easier on my system that standing in place for long periods.

Lt. Cheese Weasel: So, sit up straight and don't slouch, get up every hour, do a bit of walkies and then get your ass back to work.

I just started working at home from an upright treadmill desk specifically because of all these risks and problems.

If I stand up, will you stop harassing me about my double-fried donut bacon burgers?
