My walking desk...

Tuesday, March 05, 2013

I saw an article recently about how work places are making work stations that are treadmills with built in work stations so employees can walk and work.. and I thought that is a great idea....I have been asking my husband for months to make the platform for my desk and unfortunately he has not had the time.

I have been feeling very frustrated with my working situation recently and today I thought if I could get moving I would feel better. I went to the garage and found a board and created my own work station and off I went.

I ended up walking 5 miles today in 90 miles while working and I even did intervals with inclines so I was doing hill walking too! Pretty awesome...

Immediately I noticed my mental attitude was much better, my work day went much faster and now I am not sitting at my desk all day and now have a way to keep on moving through my day :)

Cost of board for work station $5
Cost of feeling great after walking 5 miles while working priceless

    Awesome! I have a lot of conference calls at work and many times I put some headphones in and go for a walk while doing the call. Makes me feel more alert, better, and feel like I accomplish something!

    Way to "adapt" two items into a sensational tool!
