The healthy happy active kids chair
For many years, learning and joy were considered opposing concepts. How can you possibly get any serious studying done while bouncing, rocking, and spinning? Now we know what teachers and parents—and, most of all, kids—have known all along: we do better when we feel better, and nothing makes us feel better than movement. Not only do our darling squirmers need release for all that *wonderful* energy of theirs, but movement—active sitting versus static sitting—has been shown to improve health and well-being, posture, balance, and yes, even learning and creativity. Kids concentrate longer and learn better when their bodies are engaged—habits so very important to develop in the young years.
You on your Swopper, your kids on their Swoppsters—we see good things in your future.

Wake up, brain!
In a recent New York Times article titled “Why Kids Shouldn’t Sit Still in Class,” John Ratey, associate professor of psychiatry at Harvard Medical School, shared his findings: “Movement activates all the brain cells kids are using to learn, it wakes up the brain.”
We know this to be true from our own experience of working after exercise, or working at a sit-stand desk, yet many classrooms still adhere to that old idea that sitting still means paying attention—when, in fact, kids pay better attention when they are sitting unstill. Fortunately, the tide is beginning to change as more and more parents and teachers discover the transformative benefits of movement—for all kids, and especially for those challenged with ADHD.
