Observant people may have noticed that something else changed regarding my desk other than the desk itself. Together with my new desk, I also introduced monitor stands. I had realized that it was not just the sitting that caused bad posture but also the angle at which I had to look at my monitors – they were too low.
So I bought some Fellowes TFT stands (or monitor risers as they call them) that can be set to three different heights. The one for the larger monitor even comes with a shelf and two pockets for small stuff that tends to clutter up my desk. All in all a very nice solution: less stuff flying around loosely on the desk and the right position of the monitor make for a happier translator! 🙂
