I'm now standing by default. I usually sit down for lunch, and then get tired and sit down again in the late afternoon. I don't find it painful [1], but it is somewhat tiring.

I'm generally happy with this.


[1] Near the beginning my arches would hurt; I think this was because I was putting too much weight on the front of my foot. After shifting my weight a little farther back onto my heels, they stopped hurting.
