Don’t Just Stand There! Five New Desks to Fit Your Active Lifestyle

Experts say sitting is the new smoking.  And for the past two years, I’ve felt pretty darn smug about all the hours I spend working upright at my DIY standing desk: 

Picture 112BUT – How much you wanna bet that those even smuggier experts will soon declare that STANDING is the new deep-fried heroin candy bar?

Since we all struggle to find the time for both office work AND exercise, Projectophile [me] has teamed up with King Crow Comics [Scott] to launch five new work desks to fit your Active Lifestyle.*

    • Ha! We’ve actually been trying to discourage that type of behavior around our house. It’s gotten so bad that we’re starting to call trips to the bathroom “office hours.” Like, “If you need me, I’ll be in the office.”


      • Ah, what my Husband calls the ‘reading room’. Less inclined to spend hours in the downstairs one since we had a brief visit from a snake, which ran over his foot while he was peacefully doing what boys do, and almost caused terminal bladder fright.

        • Ah yes, the trade off for our long Chicago winters is very few scary critters. I do remember when I was living in Cape Town, having a luxurious bath and then getting stuck there because I found a spider bigger than my hand parked between me and my towel.
