Has anyone switched to a standing desk? Do you feel more productive? Was it worth it? Did you switch at the office or at your home?

I have one in my office. Enjoy using it when I’m there. Definitely keeps me more energized.

I have one at the client site and love it. I usually stand the first few hours of the day. Not sure it makes a huge physical difference but mentally it makes me feel better

I miss having a standing desk - my last two clients had them and I took advantage more often than not.

Standing after lunch is nice, otherwise I just fall asleep.

Our office has the Veridesk convertible standing desks. Love those! Whenever I feel little less energy, I move it up and voila!
