This past year has forced many people around the globe to work from home, but even with conditions for going back to the office likely to improve in the near future, remote working is here to stay. Many companies have already announced plans to keep remote working as an option for their employees. As such, it’s more important than ever to equip your home office with the right tools so you can work efficiently and comfortably.
While a good internet connection and an up-to-date laptop are certainly necessary for any home office, it’s equally important to outfit your workspace with furnishings for your good health. As study after study has shown, sitting slouched over a computer all day can lead to poor posture, arterial disease, and other health problems. Sky Mat offers a number of anti-fatigue mats that, when combined with a proper desk set-up (either sitting or standing), can help prevent the ailments associated with the modern work routine.

Research has shown that sitting for an extended period of time at a computer reduces blood flow to the legs, which may contribute to the development of cardiovascular disease. The Sky Mat Genius Mat combats such problems with a number of features. It has a rolling ball to encourage muscle engagement, myofascial release, and arch and toe relief. It also has massage points and support ramps for your feet. And if you prefer to use a standing desk, it is ergonomically designed to reduce stress on your knees, spine, muscles, and joints. As with all Sky Mats, it is easy to clean and has a lifetime replacement guarantee. Even better, it is currently $40 off its list price.

Sky Mat’s anti-fatigue mats are like walking on air and reduce stress on your knees, muscles, and joints by 32%. Measuring 20 x 39 inches, this one is designed with your standing desk in mind. It provides all-day support, and its ergonomic design improves balance and posture, reduces spinal pressure and lower back pain, and encourages subtle muscle movement. It has a non-slip bottom to keep it in place, as well as an anti-curl edge. It is available in black for $40, while other color options are available for slightly more.
Measuring 20 x 32 inches, the Oasis mat is a versatile option for wherever you spend a lot of time standing. It’s perfect for putting in front of the kitchen sink, stove, or counter, and is another great standing desk mat choice. It will make you feel lighter on your feet and more energized, and like Sky Mat’s other mats, it has a non-slip bottom and is easy to clean. Though it’s been conjectured that it’s made from marshmallows, sunshine, and cotton candy, its the Oasis’ foam core that reduces stress on muscles, knees, and other joints. It is available in gray for $30, while several other color options are slightly more.
