A New Desk

Leave a comment

A couple of weeks ago I wrote this post in which I mentioned getting an adjustable desk.

Well, it arrived last week, was set up on Friday morning and I have been happily using it ever since.

Apologies for the photo quality.  I was in a rush late this afternoon and quickly took this one on my phone.

I have been standing most of the time and am finding it really good.

The mechanism makes it very easy to lift or lower in a couple of seconds.

I re-arranged several aspects of my workspace to improve the flow of work and access to various items.

I would love to hear from anyone else who uses a sitting/standing workstation and what you think of it.

Clean and Ready


My workspace in the office is pretty well uncluttered.  Even though I often have piles of papers that I am working on during the day it is all packed up at the end of the day.

This is pretty much how I leave it every night.  The laptop is packed away as I also work from home on some days.

I am quite excited as I am getting an adjustable Varidesk next week.

This is what it will look like.  It sits on the existing desk and can be adjusted to be used in either a sitting or standing position.

I am really looking forward to the option of standing for at least part of the day and expect that moving around will be one of the positive benefits.

The limited amount of stuff on my desk means that I will easily be able to accommodate the Varidesk with almost no interruption.
