So, I took everyone’s advice and bought a standing desk for my bathroom.
I looked up ‘The Best Standing Desk‘ online and decided on the StandDesk brand standing desk. I bought it, had it shipped to me – VERY quickly – then I put it up in my bathroom.
Like most of you, I had heard of the trend of putting standing desks in your bathrooms if you work at home. I thought it was a bit silly, but I’m always open to trying new things, so I decided to give it a go. It’s only been a few days, but I have to say, I’m really liking it!
I never realized how much time I spent sitting down during the day until I started using my standing desk. I usually start my day by sitting down at my desk to check email and social media, then I sit down to eat breakfast. After that I might sit down to work on a project, then take a break to sit down and watch some TV. By the end of the day I’m usually so tired from all the sitting that I just want to go to bed!
But now that I’ve started using my standing desk in the bathroom, I’m getting a lot more movement during the day. I still sit down for breakfast and to work on projects, but now I also stand up to brush my teeth, wash my face, and do my hair. And instead of sitting down to watch TV, I stand up and do some light stretching or jumping jacks.
I’m not going to lie, it’s been a bit of an adjustment. I’m used to being able to lounge around in my bathroom, but now I have to be more mindful of how I’m spending my time. But it’s definitely worth it! I feel like I have more energy during the day, and I’m even sleeping better at night.
If you’re thinking about getting a standing desk for your home, I say go for it! You might be surprised at how much you like it. 🙂
