OK, this is one I haven't tried yet, but I find it intriguing. I'm thinking of getting a standing desk, so I stand at my computer instead of sitting. I worry that my feet would get too tired but I think it would be good for me not to be sitting so much.

Standing desks burn a lot of calories. You can build them easily for your treadmill (the best standing desk) or you can put your laptop on the counter while working. Take the time to move between sitting and standing while at your computer to keep the blood flowing, increase posture, and get some extra exercise. Your legs and back will thank you.
I've used two simple pieces of furniture as standing desks that will hold a laptop or a wireless keyboard. One was a shelf designed to hold 4 fabric cube drawers. And then I got a straight legged bar stool. I put a box on top to make it the perfect height, and it blends in fine with my living room decor. I can walk in place while I spark!
