David! Good to see you again, and thank you for the praise!

I completely understand the agony over what fancy desk to acquire, same with fancy chairs.

Fortunately it really is as simple as a posture change every half hour. What surprised me most in writing this article was the discovery that stagnation, including excessive standing, is the culprit moreso than purely sitting.

I think that standing desks are still in general better, due to the ease of movement. If I’m already standing, it’s easy to walk over to a colleague, but I can go hours sitting in a comfy chair.

Grease the groove is an awesome way to address this. To me it’s even easier than just standing, since I’m also thinking of fitness goals.

Thank you again David!
