There's a lot of momentum behind standing desks these days, and I happen to love mine. But if you want to be able to stand comfortably for more than a few hours at a time, you absolutely need a good anti-fatigue mat.
Most mats under $50 are only going to be 3/8" thick, which sounds okay in theory, but is basically useless in practice. Believe me, I tried. Today only though, you can get a cushy 3/4" thick gel mat, in the color of your choice, for only $30. I paid $70 for a very similar mat not too long ago.
Even if you don't have a standing desk, these things can do wonders for your feet and back if you stand for long periods in the kitchen, so you really don't have anything to lose. [Amazon]
