Holding a desk job used to be more or less synonymous with sitting all day long, often crouched over a computer or paperwork. That may not sound too bad to those working more physically demanding jobs—after all, what's more relaxing than sitting down? But most office workers know it's difficult to maintain the correct posture in an office chair for hours. And sitting in front of a computer all day can cause back pain, neck pain, and tight shoulders, among other possible issues.

Standing desks allow you to work at your "desk job" while standing rather than sitting in a chair. They can be custom-built (for thousands of dollars) or you can convert a regular desk into a standing desk at no cost by elevating your computer. Sales of standing desks have soared in recent years; in many cases, their sales have far outpaced conventional desks.

Actually, I love the idea — rather than sitting all day staring at a computer screen, surely it would be better to be standing (while staring at a computer screen). But, I also love the idea of studying some of the assumptions surrounding sit stand desk. A common one is this: certainly it takes more effort — and extra calories — to remain upright rather than sit, and over a course of days or weeks those extra calories would add up to something significant.
