I spend a lot of time in the kitchen.
Tiled floors don't provide much cushion and as much as I theoretically want to wear slippers, I don't. When I go on a baking bender, which I've been on lately (and with my Dad and brother coming to visit in the next couple of weeks, I won't be slowing down much) my knees and back ache after a few hours.
Well, sore backs and tired legs are NO MORE!!!
Because I got me one of THESE
It's called a Wellness Mat and their motto is: standing is believing.
Let me tell you that I'm a BELIEVER!!
It's like standing on a cloud. A supportive and ergonomically designed cloud.
If anyone out there spends more than a couple of hours on their feet, I'd HIGHLY suggest getting one of these. Baking a pie has never been more enjoyable!
And before you get all 'that mat will get dirty and germy' on me, let me tell you that it's completely stain and bacteria resistant. I know, it really is the best thing ever. The mat's about 1 1/2 inches high, which is enough that even when I stand on it, my feet barely feel the floor. The lady at the store said that people stand on them with stilettos and they never rip or leave a mark. I don't know exactly what it's made of, but it's clearly from space.
So go and get one!!
You won't be sorry.
