Stand Up and Work Challenge: Day 1
This is it: Day 1 of your 28-day transition to a standing desk.
Here’s your assignment. Ready?
Stand for 12 minutes.
No more, no less.
Seems easy, right? What about the grueling, soul-crushing, arch-flattening first days you’ve heard about?
One oft-repeated piece of advice that many standing desk vets share is this: Don’t do the switch cold turkey. Ease into it gradually, building up strength and endurance in your feet and legs.
If you try to plunge right in and stand for hours at a time, before long you’ll view your standing desk as an instrument of torture.
We’re trying to build a new habit here, and the best way to do that is with small steps, taken daily.
How’d it go?
Leave a comment below when you finish your allotted standing time for the day.
Anything goes here. (Well, within reason.) Was it easier than you thought? Harder? Did you feel silly, or get mocked by your coworkers?
