Recently, I was in Oklahoma City visiting my two boys. One night my oldest son took me to see his new workplace. I walked into his studio, walked straight to his computer area, leaned onto his waist high work table and said, “this is great!”
Nick said when they moved into their new area all the designers wanted high tables to work on so they could stand as they worked if they wanted to. He said you feel pretty crummy when you sit low in a chair in front of a computer screen all day. With a high table you can sit if you want or stand if you want.
As soon as I got home and bought a sheet of MDF and immediately raised my computer workspace to waist level. I cannot explain how much better working at an elevated height is.
