I converted to a standing workstation over the last month. I have an update on rookie mistakes. Don’t assume that just because one stands a lot of the day, the conversion won’t mean changes. The improvement I have made is the mat. Always one to hunt for a bargain I turned to a nearby Home Depot intent on purchasing EVA Foam Flooring to ease the concrete floor more than the ancient shop pad I was using. One of the floor people kindly directed me around the end of the aisle to where the Martha Stewart Living Anti-Fatigue Western Weave Mat was located. I pulled all the mats out and bounced and stood on them and the Martha Stewart clocked in as the “cushiest” by my scientific study. For $20 it is also the easiest on the wallet.
I write this standing on the Martha Stewart Anti-Fatigue mat from Home Depot. I am very impressed with the immediate improvement. I will let you know if it doesn’t hold up. At $20 this is an upgrade that pays for itself.
