How I Hacked My Standing Desk With a Raspberry Pi #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi
Set a schedule to force yourself to work standing throughout the day. David Kong posted this productivity hack on Medium:
All I needed was to send the desk up every hour or so. I’ve found that switching between sitting and standing every 30–60 minutes is a great way to stay active, improve my posture, and decrease back/neck/knee pain.
My desk has a few programmable buttons that send the desk directly to a preset height when pressed, and I had already set Button 1 as my seated height and Button 2 as my standing height.
