Have you ever had something that you’ve wanted to do, know you needed to do, been really frustrated that you’ve not gotten it done, or may be even experienced pain and suffering because you didn’t do it? Yea well what you see here in this photo is what I felt after FINALLY making my office work desk a convertible standing desk.
Over the years my work has required that I spend more time working on the computer (like right now 🙂 ). As I have worked more sitting down I have noticed that I get more back and neck pain. Yes it’s true, believe it or not this chiropractor suffers from the same thing as many of his patients do. I have found that prolonged sitting, standing or any sustained posture will cause back pain quicker than anything else, except maybe getting run over by a truck.
For me it took a combination of getting tired of the pain and a big hole in my schedule that gave me the time to figure out how I was going to make my standing desk. Since I finished my sitting/standing desk, I have not had my back start to ache while I’m working on my computer at the office! Its great! I’m happier, I have more energy, I get more work done, and when I go home I’m a better husband and father.
I’m sharing this with you because all of us have things like my standing desk in our lives.
What is it for you?
What is that good thing are you not doing for yourself that you’ve been putting off?
Hey, friend, do yourself a favor, do your family and loved ones a favor, and get that thing done! Make the time, find a way and get it done today! You’ll be glad you did!
I’d love to hear about it! Please share that thing you’ve finally gotten done with me and my readers. You will be an inspiration to us all!
