I've wanted to make my desk into a standing desk for a while. I read an article last year in the SCBWI Bulletin about treadmill desks. I've read lots of articles about how sitting for long periods of time is bad for health. Last year I swapped my chair for a stability ball but kept dreaming of a standing desk.
A treadmill desk isn't realistic for me since I live in a condo and have neighbors.
I thought about doing something like this but the wind trainer on my bike too loud.

My job is actually a lot of standing since I stand while I iron and while waiting for quick changes but I sit a lot while writing.
I'd been thinking if I move my printer to the bottom part and put my laptop on the top part I could stand while working.
The shelf ended up being a little high for me but I added a ministepper which give me a little height and makes this like my own little version of a treadmill desk.
One thing I noticed is that while standing at the computer I'm more focused. I feel like I haven't spent as much on sites like Facebook because it is easy to limit time on these sites when I'm standing rather than sitting.
Does anyone else have a standing or treadmill desk?
