Any tips for learning to stand for long periods of time? How about standing barefoot for long periods of time?

I just switched to a standing desk to help create a more healthy, ergonomic work situation for a new, full-time job as a writer.
I imagine it will take me a few days to adjust to standing for long periods of time, and as I have flat feet, I figured that this might be a good opportunity to build up my arches by trying this barefoot, as I've read that shoes with lots of support (I wear orthotics) tend to make arches weaker, even if they reduce pain and such. Anyone have experience with either switching to barefootedness, or with switching to standing desks?
