Hello, I’m Michael Sliwinski, founder of Nozbe - to-do app for teams. I write essays, books, work on projects and I podcast for you using #iPadOnly in #NoOffice as I believe that work is not a place you go to, it’s a thing you do.

Aren’t you sitting too much? In the office, in the car, at home after work? Have you ever considered standing while working? I’m Michael Sliwinski of Nozbe.com and Productive! Magazine and I have been working standing these last two months and I love it. Here’s how I prepared the stand-up desk setup and how I’m doing it. Hope this helps you decide to at least give it a try!

Thoughts on Stand-up desks

Here are some of my thoughts on working with a stand-up desk:

That’s basically how I work. As I mentioned in the video, I appreciate sitting a lot more now. I love to work in the morning standing, fully concentrated in the “action mode”… and around 1-2 pm unplug the laptop and sit comfortably to answer email or chat via Skype…

Additional benefit - I’m exercising more eagerly now - the stand up position warms me up to do more exercise. It’s really cool. And totally unexpected as my feet feel really tired after I’ve been standing for quite a few hours. Anyway, I’m still standing and I’ll keep on experimenting with alternating between standing and sitting.

Question: Have you ever tried working standing? You should try it!
