Typing at 2mph
I have a new way I measure my work pace: mph. I don’t have a speed goal, but I do have a health, mental wellness, clarity and, ultimately, slow goal. In our shared space office at Bark Media, we have a Lifespan treadmill situated under one desk. Our four team members all spend time on the treadmill, rotating based on tasks and energy level from the treadmill, to the desks with standing mats, to the desks with chairs—all made much more convenient because of our laptops and Jarvis adjustable standing desks.
As much as I have enjoyed working at a standing desk, I didn’t expect to be able to work well while walking on a treadmill. I worried about tripping, being too focused on walking to focus on my screen, getting dizzy looking at my screen while walking—I was open and interested in trying it out, but ultimately skeptical.
