Workspace Inspiration: Surf While You Work
If, like me, you spent a fair amount of your junior high years in detention for constantly leaning back in your chair, then creating something like the FluidStance might be just what you need.
I’ve never been too good at staying stationary. After I graduated college I went on a 3 month rafting trip where I was moving everyday at my own pace, before suddenly finding myself in a 50+ hour a week corporate job in a windowless cubicle. I don’t know how many of you are still in that position (I ditched out pretty quickly) but I know having something like the FluidStance would’ve greatly helped me survive the days.
The snowboard-esque contraption allows you to playfully move throughout your day and keep your mind and body in check. Especially for those of you with standing desks, creating a stand like this with a bowed bottom will keep you from locking your knees or getting sore ankles/hips.
You can check out more about the FluidStance here, and I’d love to see if any of you guys have similar contraptions of your own or how you deal with the constraints of a stationary desk.
