white standing desk

Over on The B Bar’s blog today Victoria and I are doing our first ever linkup post! If you want to participate next month on your own blog, please do! Just be looking out for our post over on The Well. You can subscribe to The Well on Bloglovin if never want to miss a post!

The question we asked this month is:

What did you purchase in the past year that became invaluable to you? Something that makes you think — how did I live without this item!?!

I answered with two business-type things over on The Well post, so here I wanted to talk about what I started using in 2014 that I’m obsessed with, and that would be my standing desk.

I am so so happy I switched to a standing desk last March. I partnered with AllModern for these gorgeous high gloss tables for the studio and have absolutely NO regrets about switching from sitting all day to standing. On the rare occasion I work from home during the week, I get so annoyed that I sit all day. I can just feel my legs getting restless and I have to get up and move around all the time because I’m not used to sitting for so long. I feel so much better after standing all day versus sitting.

If you’re wondering, I do sit sometimes. Sometimes at the end of the day I’ll sit for the last hour or so. If I’m not feeling well I’ll sit, or if I’m wearing any sort of heel I’ll sit for a while (I don’t wear heels often). However I’d say that I stand at least 90% of the time.

Do any of you use a standing desk? Do you like it?
