Standing still working works well but if done continuously for hours gave me varicose veins (owned a health food shop in my 20s, much counter-standing and varied movement, no time to sit).
Surely a mix of standing and sitting and moving on a more equal basis would be preferable, though it's very dependant on what work you are required to do.
I know I feel better if I remember to start the day with standing for a while (while reading the forum :0)), move around a while (getting up and sorting the house, cleaning etc) and sit for my coffee/brunch break. But I'm luckily retired. When I was office-bound the photocopier was situated at the other end of a large Victorian building so it gave regular chances to move around, and taking a walking lunch break was vital.
Trouble is my cat wants to cuddle on my lap now ...

10 years ago we were told we would all be standing within the decade, we are buying standing desks (electronic up and down desks) every month as that is what our colleagues are asking for.
