Sitting all day in front of a computer is both monotonous and unhealthy. That's why sit-stand desks are gaining in popularity. The ability to quickly switch from sitting to standing is a great way to burn a few extra calories, improve circulation, help with back problems and more. Last month I reviewed my first standing [...]

You've seen it, I've seen it, we've all read the warnings claiming that sitting too much is the new cancer. Trust me, cancer is no fun (voice of experience here), so finding alternatives to sitting all day is something everyone should consider. There are apps that will remind you to get up and move around [...]

I've shown you pictures of my desk that I custom designed from Elfa components at the Container Store.  I designed a perfect desk for myself, and then I was able to easily turn that one person desk into a two-person desk when my husband wished he had a new desk, too.  That desk was built [...]

Sitting at a desk while working on a laptop or desktop computer can be very tiring.  If your desk height and chair height aren't right for you, you can get back and neck pain, and you can even develop carpal tunnel problems with your wrists.  You can take the desk out of the equation with [...]

space-revv-1

Choosing the perfect office chair can be as difficult as choosing the perfect pair of sneakers, jeans, mattress or car. Everyone has their own criteria of what feels good to them. That's probably why I've had the same office chair for the last 20 or more years. Wow, I didn't even realize I've had the [...]

updesk-upwrite

Back in the olden days when CRTs had glass screens, I used to use a dry-erase marker to leave myself a note right on the screen for important things I needed to do first thing after getting to work.  I don't dare write on my screens with anything now, so I just have to put [...]

If you live in an apartment where you can't make permanent changes or in a 60-year-old house with 4"-thick plaster-and-lathe walls that make finding the wall studs impossible like I do, you may have thought a wall organizer unit and desk like the one in the photo was impossible for you.  Usually this type of [...]
