Sit stand desk? What to do when working from home?

Sore after a long day at work? Looking for a sit stand desk but don’t want to spend thousands? This desk converter version has worked well for us. The best spinal position is a varied position! Hope this helps you.

 

There are many great options of these out there. Based on reviews in how solid it was built and ease of use to raise up and down, Chris chose the VIVO Black Height Adjustable 36inch stand up desk converter on Amazon.ca. Happy hunting!

Baby Cross Crawl Exercise helps to develop the bridge between the left and right brain hemispheres

 

Hey Mamma’s ..

This is an intentional cross-lateral exercise for babies in which you cross the mid-line of the body by touching opposite hand to knee or foot. This exercise helps to build the bridge between the right and left hemispheres of the brain. This allows electrical impulses and information to pass between the two sides of the brain, which is essential for physical coordination and cerebral activities, such as reading, language and hand-to-eye coordination. It is easy to perform at diaper changes and babies usually have a great time with it as well.

Enjoy!
