The happy healthy active kids chair.
Thanks to recent studies, we now 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 kids need release for all their wonderful energy, but movement—active sitting versus static sitting—has been shown to improve their health, posture, balance, and even learning and creativity. Kids concentrate longer and learn better when their bodies are engaged—habits that are so important to develop in the young years.

Move your body, wake your 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 continue to adhere to the old idea that sitting still means paying attention—when, in fact, kids pay better attention when they are sitting un-still. Fortunately, more and more parents and teachers are discovering the transformative benefits of movement for kids—especially those challenged with ADHD.
