Maybe you could get/make a platform to put on top of your desk to work standing up. Put your stuff on and off the platform as you put it on and off. Hopefully you don’t have an old 50 lb CRT with your computer.

The computer itself could stay off the platform – just have keyboard, monitor, and mouse on it.

  • How do i handle a coworker that always makes joke to me.
    When i am working he tickles me or wants to play fight.
    I dont like that but i dont want to be mad and create tention.
    He also doesnt really respect me i know that in the way he talks.

  • I’ve been using this video to learn how to do a headstand and I honestly did not expect this pose to help with my anxiety as much as it has! It helps me focus on being in my own body and being aware of what my body can do on that day. It’s a very meditative pose and I’m so glad I found this video! Love the YWA community ❤��

  • While riding the subway, the first thing I look for is a seat. I hate standing still, but I don’t mind moving around/exercising/dancing.

  • I loved this video sooo much❤
    You are amazing, I can already do a headstand and crow pose thanks to you and I would love to learn a handstand to!! ☺

  • Was goofin and totally ran into my dresser trying to show my sister what a headstand was. Smh. I’m new so I just wanted to show her the steps and ended going up but also back because I don’t have the strength. Don’t be stupid �� kinda salty she didn’t even try to save like leg tho smh ����

  • Wow! I have been wanting to learn how to do a headstand, I have followed along short 5 minute videos. However, this one was great because of how involved you were with how to build strength and take it step by step. Thank you! Very helpful!

  • Adriene I don’t know if you’ll see this comment but is it normal for my head to hurt when I’m doing this? or am i just weak and not used to doing a headstand

  • Increased standing time by occupation probably more a correlation factor. Need to limit variables. Could be that those who stand all day in occupations that are more dangerous, make less money, have less access to health care, etcetera.

  • I personally prefer sitting desks because if I’m sitting for 30-60 minutes, my body will get uncomfortable enough to tell me when to get up and move around. I agree with the video that just standing at a desk is not enough to get the necessary movement during the day. Also, on the topic of staying hydrated, I use a 20 oz Yeti tumbler because I find that 20 oz of water is a good amount but I keep getting up to refill it as well as use the restroom, giving me even more reason to move around during the day.

    Good video with some excellent info though!

  • I may doubt the claims on standing with mortality/overhealth health; BUT I think it’s kind of crazy to suggest it doesn’t help your back (as you seem to agree at 8:00). I think this is the key takeaway. Don’t skip out on a standing desk before finishing the video!

  • Final Analysis…”You SEE what you want to SEE, you HEAR what you want to HEAR”. If you’ve never been to Paris do you doubt that it’s there? I use a standing desk up and down throughout the day and I feel it helps me in many ways. Point being…Perception IS Reality. Thank you, ladies and gentlemen of the jury. Your witness.

  • You said in the video itself that a standing desk has concrete benefits for both posture and relieving back pain related to prolonged sitting. That seems like a clear advantage, no? Most of the disadvantages you brought up are related to prolonged static positioning *in general*, regardless of posture during that time. So they obvious solution seems to be “use a standing desk, but take some breaks to move during the day”.

  • I agree with and practice everything you suggest in this video. In fact, I have been publicly complimented by one of my managers as one of the most professional people with whom he’s ever worked.

    Unfortunately, I work in the tech industry where the people who usually get promoted practice the exact OPPOSITE of these things. And I’m not exaggerating. It’s pretty sad. ��

  • I don’t think many people are considering standing permanently at their desk. The idea behind desk raisers is to, every 20-40 minutes of sitting, do 2-15 minutes of standing. Also, no one stands perfectly still. This video makes it sound like you have to choose between 2 extremes.

  • Were kind of unsure about if whether I should do this one or not but I gave it a try and ended up going half way without using the wall for the first time ����
    Trust adriene trust the video ��

  • Hi I am vedha I am fat and slim now how to slim pls say ya I am not babolala I am babolala “s before boy what Menes I am the boy fighter whet men’s that is my father pls say

  • This video is very well done! I have used both standing desks and sitting desks for months at a time, and I have found that vigorous overall activity makes a much greater difference in my energy level, attitude, and well-being than what desk I use. So I make sure to do frequent and vigorous yard work, bike riding, and walking/hiking to offset my relatively sedentary desk time.
