Oh wow, that all sounds really, really good. Way to go!
Yes! Seems almost like a switch flipped and things started to get better very quickly.
Ask Greg if you'd like a desk recommendation. I think he's been happy with the one he got in the fall.
Really glad to hear things are looking up!
Good news! I bet that made you so happy.
Not cheap (work paid for it), but I’ve been happy with Uplift. Might be able to find something used now if people are starting to go back to work. IKEA also has a few models.
Omg the Ikea one is so cute, it has a little crank you turn to make it go up and down!
The Uplift desks look like the ones we had at the office. Had I known how much they were I would have grabbed one when we had our office free-for-all.
I'm making it work now by adjusting my normal sitting routine just a bit. I've got my laptop in a stand, second monitor next to it, and then wireless keyboard + mouse on the desk. In order to be able to work while standing I propped both the monitor and laptop stand on some textbooks (screen height for both still good while sitting) and just move the monitor to its highest position when I stand. That means I switch to typing/mousing on the laptop—it's at about the right height but not the right angle in the stand, and the laptop screen itself is a bit too low. So, workable, especially for meetings, but not great for actually getting a lot done. It was a lot easier to just move all of it up together!
