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.
