I’ve taken a photo of my workspace at night from the ground up as it is a standing work space. A couple of years ago a friend of mine told me about standing work stations. We have both worked as academics for many years and sitting for long periods is painful and unhealthy. I started by converting my desk at work to standing. I’m also doing another PhD at the moment so I decided more recently to convert my home desk to standing. What I like about it is that I can think and move at the same time. I can stand on one foot and then the other. If I need to take a brief break to think about something then I can walk in a circle or walk to the kitchen and make a cup of tea. My screen saver is a collection of anime art. This reminds me, if I wait long enough, that I still have a childish love of colour and action. There is a painting to the left of the work station and a drawing to the right. The painting is an Jungian archetype of self to remind me that writing is a path I chose for myself. The drawing to the right is an critical ‘eye’ which helps me to stay focussed on my work. I like that the light above shines onto the keyboard as this is where words come from. If I were to change anything about this work space I would add in a daily massage as still my neck hurts when I write!
