The Onion on Stand Up Desks

A good health tip from The Onion -

"Many Americans spend a minimum of eight hours per day sitting in an office, but we observed significant physical and mental health benefits in subjects after just one instance of standing up, walking out the door, and never coming back to their place of work again.......We encourage Americans to experiment with stretching their legs by strolling across their office and leaving all their responsibilities behind forever just one time to see how much better they feel. People tend to become more productive, motivated, and happy almost immediately."

Love. It.

I also love my stand up workstation, too!

Perfect timing...my DW's company is installing stand up desks as part of their new office construction...they may need to add locks to all exit doors
