Standing Up

Because it seems to be all the rage these days, I thought I would experiment with working standing up. I stand up when I teach for hours at a time and I like that, so this seemed like a natural thing for me to do. I made a simple setup with stuff I had on hand. I’m curious how it will feel.

The new Apple Magic Trackpad really makes this work with my laptop, which is my only computer. I can also move the keyboard and trackpad to different locations and that’s great, too. I’m using it for practicing, writing, and coding. However, I can just grab my laptop and sit in my good chair whenever I want to. That makes most sense to me. to do what’s most comfortable at the time and to vary the routine. So far, I like it. We’ll see how it goes.
