Hamstrings That Need to Loosen Up

In the past couple of years I've noticed that my hamstrings are usually really tight. It's not painful, but I really notice the tightness even when I'm just walking around. More recently, my hips have started popping multiple times every day which seems maybe like not a good thing? [more inside]

Standing desk hacks

As much as I hate "hacks" (I don't care if that's the way monkeys peel a banana), I've recently converted to a standing desk and am in need of tips to keep comfortable, productive, and potentially avoid health risks from standing for long periods. [more inside]

What's a good balance board for a standing desk?

I use an adjustable desk at work, and alternate between sitting and standing. After a coworker mentioned the Level, I really want to try using a balance board while standing, but maybe not a $400 one! So what should I look for instead? [more inside]

Finding a Sometimes Standing Desk Topper

I would like to stand while I work sometimes. Ideally I'd like to find a topper for the desk I have at work (which I cannot replace with a full standing desk) that I can easily adjust to standing or sitting heights throughout the day. The ones I've found for sale are incredibly expensive ($300). I use a desktop computer with a monitor and all I really need is to raise and lower the monitor easily. [more inside]

the standing desk vs. my health

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]

Very thick antifatigue mat for standing desk?

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.

Standing-height TV tray?

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 to convert the top of my desk to an adjustable sit/stand?

I'm really intrigued by the idea of a variable height sit/stand desk, but for a couple reasons, I'm probably stuck with my current utterly inconspicuous, heavy wood composite desk. Fortunately, the top comes off, so I think I might be able to modify the desk so that I can raise/lower the top independently of the rest of the desk. What kind of hardware would I need, and where can I buy it? [more inside]

Seeking Personal Experiences with Using a Standing Desk

Does anyone have any experience with the benefits of using a standing desk? 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.
