A bunch of studies have come out recently suggesting that sitting for long periods of time could be terrible for our health. Since many people work desk jobs, this could mean trouble.
Have no fear! A solution has come! A company called FluidStance has created a standing desk that allows the user to rock back and forth, helping with balance and occasional movement throughout the day.
The UpGrade System puts bodies and minds in motion, transforming the common classroom to an active learning space.✏️🍎📚 To learn more, support our campaign, or spread the word, please visit our Kickstarter campaign (link in bio). #keepmoving #edchat #edtechchat #blendedlearning #innovation #activelearning #kickstarter #crowdfunding
The company has made the board with kids in mind, but adults could definitely use it too. It looks like a super cool skateboard that helps you also do your job!
I think this is a great idea, especially for kids or adults who constantly have to be moving throughout the day. It also makes work seem a little fun. By engaging yourself both mentally and physically, you have no idea what kind of ideas you could come up with throughout the day. I mean, this is probably going to help you get that promotion that you want. But, maybe not.
