I recently noticed visible blue veins in my legs. Ahh! Relatedly, I think, I've been working at a standing desk for 7-8 hours a day for the last few months. I love it. But now I'm concerned about some cosmetic and health risks I may be taking on by doing so. Are there ways to mitigate the harm (?) I'm doing? [more inside]

I have a somewhat unusual setup - I use a 26" TV set at 1360X768 as my main monitor, and a 17" monitor as my secondary. I will be adding a third. More... [more inside]
I'm trying to locate this awesome antifatigue mat to pair with my standing desk. All I can remember about it is that it's ridiculously thick (like 6 inches), that it was a doctor's mat of choice, and that it's best to use in socks or bare feet.
In advance of the new year, I'm making a resolution: No more sitting desk. Traditional standing desks are hilariously outside my budget, but I've spied a number of Ikea hacks that are appealing. Here are the Q's I have (And, hey, suggestions are also welcome!): [more inside]

We have a computer hooked up to our TV and I would love to have something like a TV tray, but taller, so I could stand up behind it with the wireless mouse and keyboard and compute for short periods of time and then put it away. Know of any tallish tv trays or folding tall card tables or even something on wheels that would allow me to do something like this? Ikea is unfortunately not really an option, and I'm looking for something pretty cheap.

What kind of hardware would I need, and where can I buy it? [more inside]

I'd like to spend my day upright instead of on my butt, and I'm having trouble finding much information online about such ergodynamic set-ups. All I can find is information about the desks themselves (I already have an adjustable-height desk), and no info about benefites, experiences, etc.
