Author's Selfie Midnight approaches! I hadn’t meant to stay up this late, except I had a lot to do for my classes, so late night studying! Most of the time I don’t have to stay up. My schedule this week made studying a bit more difficult.

Standing Up

At work, I have an adjustable height desk and spend most of my days standing up. I’ll usually only sit down when I take breaks, or when I’m working on things where I need to spread out work on the desk. Part of the reason I end up standing comes from years working in public libraries, standing at the desk.

The whole thing is on wheels, easy to move, has space for textbooks and my thermos. The adjustments are manual, but it can also go down to a sitting height as needed. I find standing is helpful for my productivity—and it certainly helps me stay awake when I need to!
