Winston Churchill knew it. Ernest Hemingway knew it. Leonardo da Vinci knew it. Every trendy office from Silicon Valley to Scandinavia now knows it too: there is virtue in working standing up. And not merely standing. The trendiest offices of all have treadmill desks, which encourage people to walk while working. It sounds like a fad. But it does have a basis in science.
As someone with a standing desk at both home and the office, I too could not be a bigger believer.
I like to think I was just ahead of my time. I’ve been standing at my desk for a very long time!
