It will change your life!


I actually got one around two months ago. Standing for stretches is a little hard at first... but after a few weeks in you'll really like being able to adjust it. Assuming it's retractable.

👍 Go for it. I got a Varidesk pro. It really is a game changer for posture and I'd say even energy level.

Did your company pay for it? There's no way mine would pay for one for analysts... I think.

For those standing desk novices... 1) You're not supposed to stand all day/take turns sitting every few hours 2) Shift pressure on different feet while standing 3) Still take breaks to walk around

Anyone have people buy these big blue balls to sit on? That's supposed to help posture, too!

I tried one of the blue desk ball chairs and quit after 2 weeks! If you have abs of steel than more power to you!
