Can confirm, got my standing desk from IKEA with a bamboo top. Looks good, does the job, nothing too fancy though.

Costco should have a nice white glassy table with touch pad control. Very nice. Otherwise Autonomous is great as well. We have both so telling from experience.

200 dollar one from Amazon works fine for me. Splurged more on my chair

You can search for Fezibo and it should appear

Honestly standing desks are all the same. IKEA and Amazon have ones in the $200s and $300s. I pod $150 for mine pre pandemic and it’a not different from more expensive desks.

I got a flexispot on Amazon for ~200 and it works just fine 👍👍

I am not not having the best time. I do not feel interested on my job and find hard to wake up in the morning and do it...or do anything else. It has been a rough year with the pandemic and all. Sometimes I think home office is affecting me too much or May be I am lazy. Or is this depression? Should I see a professional?
