A standing desk is beyond my means for now. But will try when I can.

When I was building my home office, I didn’t buy any chair. I use exercise ball instead (I am 185 cm and I bought 85cm and backup 90cm deflated under the table - so definitely larger than recommended sizes). I sit only when I have to. I try to do meetings walking using my phone and do some 20,000 steps per day. I like this combination and cannot imagine sitting in front of the computer in the chair for whole day anymore.

Maybe, you’re more energetic person than me. For me, even when I try my hardest, the sustainable rate of “doing the hardest creative work” is some 3 hours per day + 2 easier dev work + 3 hours nondev work. A had a slight burnout many years ago. Before that, I believe I was able to do way more (maybe 5-6 hours of concentrated work + 2 easier + 3 non-dev work). It might be the reason. The other reason might be I was in my 20s and now I am closer to my 40s than to my 20s.

A nice chair makes huge difference

I am sitting on such a ball, and it's better than most chairs, but it's not like it's not a huge conscious effort to maintain proper posture, at least without sports background

should be training the back muscles, doesn’t it?

I’ve recently heard of active chairs, planning to investigate a bit more

I'm nearly 60, and I've also experienced burnout but I attribute that to the job itself, or perhaps more to that job's environment. I've worked from home full time for ten years now which also really helps me stay in flow, since I have much more control over my environment and when I actually work.

it does somewhat. Got a sore back for a few days after started using it.

I much prefer to code on horseback, or occasionally up a tree.

Doesn't RH advocate for Hammock Driven Development? Who are we to question such wise words.

Cris B 2020-08-12T22:10:18.120100Z

A hammock in space. Sounds good to me! (especially given how things are looking down here on Earth).
