Keep A Movable Chair In Kitchen & Save Your Legs!


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

I am fortunate to have a large kitchen space with no island. However,I am on my feet ALOT between putting all the dishes away, making dinner, cleaning up the counter space & table and taking out food from the fridge & later putting it back after a meal! My legs can become so HEAVY from standing & moving so much.My solution: a chair that can be easily moved[with wheels or lightweight but sturdy] that I can SIT IN when I am peeling the potatoes over the counter or putting the silverware away ...

from the dishwasher. Just SITTING for EVEN A SMALL AMT. OF TIME REDUCES STRESS on my legs and weary body. Now I just have to keep my preschooler from climbing all over it!

    By walking around instead of cheating my rolling around on the chair is better exercise!

    you can multitask by working in the kitchen and exercising at the same time!
