First Week with the Standing Desk

I’ve just finished the my first week with my Ikea  standing desk. Other than the expected leg fatigue it has been great.

The desk was simple enough to build I just followed the instructions shown in “A standing desk for $22.” I have one complaint about the setup but nothing major. I should have, and eventually will, bought a wider shelf for the keyboard surface than I did. With multiple monitors the smaller shelf pushes me more in front of one monitor which means I have to turn my head a lot more. The extra space would also be nice as a writing surface. Currently I have to lean up over my keyboard and write on the tables which will not hard is inconvenient.

Other than those things it’s been great. I’ve felt a lot more productive and have had a much easier time concentrating on tasks. I also haven’t had issues with coming back from lunch tired.
