Create Free Standing Computer Desk


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

Create a standing computer desk, or use an existing surface to compute and surf the net from a standing position. You will burn more calories, exercise posture muscles and, in general, promote better health than doing it sitting all the time.

I created my standing computer station without spending a cent. I put an old monitor and keyboard on top of my dresser drawers which were just the right height. I have a slightly old laptop which serves as CPU. I haven't completely abandoned my regular computer desk. I switch between the two.

    I actually did this at work a few weeks ago. People think I'm crazy, but I like being able to stand up and work. And when I'm sitting at my desk, it's on an exercise ball!

    I do this every day. People look at me like i'm crazy but I don't mind ;-)
