I keep alternating between two songs in my head after writing that title.
The first is Under the Sea - Under the desk, under the desk, darling it's better down where it's wetter - no that doesn't quite work.
The second is Talking in Your Sleep - I hear the secrets that you keep, when you're talking in your sleep - except that I'm awake but I am indeed about to share the secrets that I keep...under my desk.
I'll start with my newest under the desk addition, a compact mini elliptical so I that can workout while I work. Some of my coworkers have standing desks and I know a few people with treadmill desks in their home offices, but I know myself and I need to sit to do my work. This Cubii elliptical gives me a way to keep active in a practical way. I think these mini ellipticals would also be great for older people who can't stand often or someone getting over surgery or even a person who struggles with an attention disorder may find this activity centering. I also like adding a few of these exercises throughout the day to help counterbalance all the sitting I do.
Of course, when I'm not secretly working out, I slip on my comfy slippers (hey I just figured out why they called them that!) and nobody even knows until I forget that I'm wearing them and head to the copier or to get water in a walk of shame.
I've had a mini heater under my desk for the last ten winters or so, as my feet tend to be the coldest part of my body, especially since I'm prone to wearing shoes without socks. Fashion over function as they say! This newer heater also has a cooling element so one's feet can be climate controlled all year long.
And finally, I have a foot massager under my desk so I can roll my achy feet in privacy. I started using this when I had plantar fasciitis and it's a great stress release.
