Stand and Deliver

I’ve made a few changes in my man cave aka writer’s hangout.

standing-desk

The desk now has no computer and is reserved for reading, writing by hand, and daydreaming lol.

To the right of the lamp is where I stand and compose missives like this one.

This is a north-facing room and somewhat dark and cool, except during Tokyo’s sultry summer, when it becomes my own personal sauna. That’s partly because the window shown does not, alas, open.  A major design flaw, and so the room’s air flow depends on a sliding window out of view to the left. What were they thinking?

My standing lark is not just for the reported health benefits. I rarely remain still for long anyway and, as well as sitting to write and think/sink at the desk, I’m also prone to lying on the floor with my legs raised on a chair. That position encourages our dog to assume I’ve become her very own living futon.

What effect will these arrangements have on productivity or procrastination? Who knows. However, I am now much more aware of time wasting when standing on my own two feet haha! So, I’m expecting there’ll be less of that and more of the other…
