Lighten-Up and Lean… It’s The Weekend

4monitors Roger KramerI have blogged about the trend at CPA firms to use stand-up desks. I have seen more and more of them as I visit firms around the country.

A standing desk is nothing new. Did you know that Ernest Hemingway, Winston Churchill and Ben Franklin used stand-up desks?

The downside is…. yes, it’s tiring to stand-up for hours!

leanchairHere’s a new development that I read about via Fast Company (you should be reading/following Fast Company).

It is a “new chair-ish thing, you sort of get the benefit of standing at work, without fully standing”.

So… lighten-up and smile more this weekend and learn about leaning.

Here is a picture of Hemingway at his stand-up desk.
