I love being in the kitchen and just baking the day away. What I don't love is the way my body feels later. Standing long periods of time while baking is definitely going to take a toll on your back, knees, neck, and especially your feet! How you're standing and what you're standing on will definitely impact your whole body.
I have had the pleasure of being able to review a mat from WellnessMats, and I'm hooked! I received the Original WellnessMat in 3'x2' for review. It's a bargain for only $119.95! Trust me, you'll want to stand on it all day! I love my wood floors, but I don't like the way they make my feet hurt. Another thing is flour, sugar, and other ingredients are a pain to clean up from my wood floor. Now that I have the WellnessMat I can easily clean up with just a damp washcloth or even paper towel.
I have been using my WellnessMat for baking, cooking, and even doing laundry! Finally I can withstand baking/cooking after hours of working!!
Even though I have only one mat I can pick it up and take it wherever I want. Ideally I will purchase more once we move into a house, but one is perfect for my apartment. This mat is now one of my favorite kitchen products!! It's made in America, ECO Friendly (WellnessMats' proprietary advanced polyurethane technology (ATP), are 100% recyclable!), and best yet 7 YEAR Warranty!! (Remain unmatched in comfrot, always lie flat, never delaminate, never compress, never wear through)
My favorite thing about this mat is the way I feel while baking. I feel like I'm standing on air! Usually after baking for an hour I would have aches in my back, feet, and neck, and my knees would be throbbing. While decorating a cake, I'd feel as if my legs would just collapse. While using the WellnessMat I actually felt my posture improve.
I've tried other mats out there, and I can tell you from experience - this is it! Don't waste your money elsewhere. I promise you wont be disappointed. :)
