Spruce Up the Classroom Before Your Students Return from Winter Break

With the holiday season coming to a close, it means that kids will be back in the classroom in no time. While there’s break in the action, what better time to spruce up your classroom and surprise your students with a livelier place to learn.

Recent studies by the Georgia Educational Research Association have actually shown that classrooms that implement more modern design features, such as alternative seating, have shown positive results in student performance, and it may help make that transition back from winter break a little more pleasant.

Think Outside the Desk

Over the past couple of decades, classrooms have become far more than rows of desks facing the board. Classrooms have evolved into spaces of heightened productivity that are cleverly crafted for each age group.

Great modern classrooms showcase multiple seating choices for students that increase time spent on-task without distraction or discomfort. Layouts that mix group-centric seating, individual seating, or even floor seating also allow teachers to use the right arrangement for the right subject.

Where to Look for Classroom Game-Changers

Before wading through dozens of expensive classroom furniture catalogs, be sure to check out the end of the year deals. For the empty floor space in your classroom, you can save 10% on EVA multi-purpose puzzle play mats when you purchase 25 or more tiles, any thickness or color! Perfect for filling extra-large open spaces or to gift to the neighboring classroom.

As always, We Sell Mats is the best place to buy equipment like our tumbling octagons which can be adapted into alternative seats for students who prefer them, and our yoga/exercise mats are excellent for silent reading time. We Sell Mats wishes every teacher good luck during the rest of the school year and a happy 2020!

Gym Owners Prepare: The New Year Resolution Rush is Coming

With the incoming new year, millions of Americans are preparing for a fresh start to reach personal goals in the form of New Year’s resolutions. In a study by the Marist Poll, it was found that the most common resolution in the country is exercising more in order to meet personal fitness goals.

As you may expect, a massive surge in fitness-related determination means loads of potential business for gyms and health clubs all across the country.

The Numbers Don’t Lie

In the days approaching the new year, internet searches related to gym memberships rise nearly 40%, so it came as no surprise when the International Health, Racquet & Sportsclub Association reported that 12% of new gym memberships for the whole year are purchased in January.

With so many Americans eager to get into the gym to start the year off right, it’s easy to see why now is a great time to start thinking about refitting your facility before the massive influx of new customers.

Time to Gear Up

Of course, your business is always improving, but with such a large group of incoming new gym enthusiasts, timely upgrades to the facility will allow you to maximize this year’s wave of resolutions.

Quick changes like fresh new exercise mats for new members will allow both the club and customer to maximize their first few visits. After all, cleanliness is extremely important to gym clients – especially new members –so ditching worn-out mats for fresh ones can make all the difference in retaining the surge in business, all while motivating your customers to meet their fitness goals.   If you’re looking to upgrade your facility in time for the New Year, We Sell Mats is your secret weapon for all types of fitness mats, including equipment, exercise, tumbling, and yoga mats that will have your gym resolution-ready in no time.

Zen Out this Holiday Season

As wonderful as the holidays can be, this time of year can also be extremely taxing. Whether you’re worried about spending too much money, exhausted by holiday crowds, or stressed out about family dynamics, it’s no wonder that according to U.S. News and World Reports. 38% of people say their stress level increases during the holiday season. Even though the holidays may bring some added stress, there are plenty of ways to stay centered while we enjoy time with our families and wrap up 2019.

Channel Your Inner Ommm

Unwind, take a breather, and take a step out of the action. To keep your sanity during the holidays, the best thing you can do is physically remove yourself from the action for a few minutes of “you-time.” If you’re looking to make the most out of your moment of peace, yoga is an easy and fulfilling way to relax and motivate yourself to power through your demanding holiday schedule.

Studies conducted by the International Journal of Yoga have found that in no time, regular yoga routines can noticeably reduce stress. Additionally, in the Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine, researchers found that yoga improved anxiety levels better than just taking a walk.
