Writers sit. A lot.
This writer certainly does! But I’m trying something different–I put together a makeshift standing desk to avoid sitting so much.
Some writers (and other work-from-home professionals) buy special stands to convert their desks from sitting to standing. Others have invested in treadmill desks. Then there are those who walk and dictate. I’ve tried dictation. It works in a pinch, but isn’t a long-term solution for me personally.
All of these methods to get out of the chair intrigue me, but I’ve never been motivated enough to try them.
Well, last week I was exhausted. I’m talking tired every day to the point I barely got anything work-related done. Part of it was a disruption in my routine (I had appointments every day). This week, I decided something needed to change.
For one week, I’m working while standing for at least an hour every day.
