Why I killed my standing desk Crew blog.
The problem with my standing desk however was it forced me to rest at times when my brain wanted to work. It was hard for me to get into a flow while standing. The standing desk helped me stay focused for certain tasks like answering email partly because I knew I could only stand for so long. But when it came to tasks that required a bit more focused thought like writing I was distracted. I thought more about the pain in my legs than the words I was trying to put on the page. Even if this pain was good for me I didnt care anymore. Thinking about the pain was impacting my work. That day I killed my standing desk.
