Product I am recommending: Wobble Chair
Do you, like me, have kids that are going back to school this week? If so, equip them for postural success by getting them a wobble chair to do their online classes. More than ever before, the home work space has become a true concern for parents and children. I love this product that allows kids to burn energy while they stay in front of a screen. So far, I have seen my kids far more focused, engaged and happy when using this product during their zoom classes. The stools come in a few different sizes based upon the size of your child. To fit them correctly, measure the distance from the floor to their knee. This is the ideal height of the stool that works best for them. The idea of this product is chiropractic approved because it encourages an active sitting position and increased blood flow into the spine.
Wood project I am building: Tablet Stand
To eliminate my kids looking down at their tablets for school I built them simple wooden stands that hold their devices upright. I got the idea on etsy for $19 each (see link) but was able to create them for free using some scrap wood and wood glue in the garage. This project also doubles to hold books and magazines vertically for reading.
Quote I am spreading: “Stress is created when we do not take responsibility for an area of our lives.” ~ Gay Dickinson in “The Big Leap”
Have you ever felt completely stressed out about an area of your life you have neglected or procrastinated? If so, this quote is a great reminder to use the feeling of stress (that weird feeling in your gut or that constant nagging thought in your mind) as a signal that it is time to take action. The more stress we feel, the more urgent the need to take complete responsibility!
Have a kick ass week everyone!
