WellnessMats in the Studio & Giveaway!

I was recently given an item to review- something I’ve been needing and wanting for some time for my studio- WellnessMats, a quality anti-fatigue mat made right here in the USA! WellnessMatLogoJSIM Since I do most of my hand crafting standing at a counter-height table, I chose the 6′ x 2′ WellnessMats that fits perfectly along the side of the table I stand at the most. Cathe-Holden-Studio-Mat-02And because of the no-trip beveled edge, I am able to walk over it often to get from one area of the studio to the other with no issues. Cathe-Holden-Studio-Mat-01Since designing and making stuff is my job, standing to craft for long periods of time puts a lot of stress on my feet and back which causes aches and pains that have me “calling it a day” earlier than I’d like. After a few weeks with the WellnessMats, I am so much more comfortable crafting for a much longer time and I’m sure it will give me many years of comfort while creating.

Here are a few more great points about WellnessMats:

  • Each is 3/4″ thick with edges that will never curl.
  • They are anti-microbial, safe, and not-toxic.
  • Puncture, heat, stain, and dirt resistant.
  • Non-slip top and bottom surfaces
  • Easy to clean and come with a seven year performance warranty.
  • The mats are sold through Williams Sonoma, Chef’s Catalogue, Sur la Table, Cook.com, Frontgate and more than 700 independent retailers nationwide.

WellnessMats has recently launched a host of new product innovations designed with the entire home in mind. With a dedicated mission to contribute to healthier lifestyles, they now offers an array of styles, lines, colorways and designs that complement standing areas in the bathroom/vanity, garage, outdoor grilling spaces, fitness, home office and workplace, even art studio!WellnessMat-Categories-JSIM

  3. #3 - Vickie fisher says:

    My achy feet could use one of these mats!

  4. #4 - Jane S. says:

    I’ve seen mats like that before and have wondered if they really work. It was nice to read your review, and now I know that they do! My husband could really use something like that in his workshop, especially in the cold weather. He can usually feel the cold from the concrete floor through the bottom of his boots, and his feet are aching when he comes in for the day. Thank you for the chance to win. 🙂

  5. #5 - Cynthia R says:

    We’re not getting any younger! 🙂 thanks for the giveaway!

  7. #7 - Beth K says:

    Love the Wellness Mat! Would be great in front of the sink. Thanks for the giveaway!

  8. #8 - nancy d says:

    I read your write up with interest. As a person who suffers from chronic back pain I’m always on the look out for products that will help make my life somewhat easier. There is nothing more frustrating then having to cut your crafting session short due to pain! I wonder how these would look with a little mod podge and fabric 🙂

  9. #9 - Casey fisher says:

    This mat is awesome with the edges beveled down! I do hair
    So of course my feet and back always
    Hurt. Thank you for posting if I don’t win
    I know where to get a great mat and also
    Let my friends know.
    🙂 thanks!

  10. #10 - coasterkim says:

    I would love to try one of these mats! I see them all the time but never splurged on one. Thanks for the chance to win.

  11. #11 - Edie evans says:

    My work space is a cement floored basement. Thus the floor is cold, hsrd and damp.this would make my creative time much more pleasant and thus more used


  12. #12 - Becky Garrison says:

    Oh wow! I would love one of these for in front of my kitchen sink! I have neck and shoulder problems that bother me after standing and leaning over for a long time … would love to see if these could help with the achy tiredness!

  13. #13 - Michele Roberts says:

    I use a anti-fatigue mat at work but it looks so “office” and black! I like the sleek look of the kitchen mat- much more design friendly! I would love to have one for in the kitchen! Thanks for making this available!

  14. #14 - Cassie says:

    My neighbor has one of these and I totally hang out in her kitchen just so I can stand on it!

  15. #15 - Dee Tollaksen says:

    What a clever addition to a crafting space!

  16. #16 - darlene koppel says:

    That would be perfect in my kitchen!

  18. #18 - Willa says:

    What a wonderful give-away! I have mats in my kitchen and love them. They make all the difference for on-your-feet activites. This would be welcome in any studio. Anywhere.

  19. #19 - sandie morgan says:

    Nice mats, will buy one even if I don’t win!

  20. #20 - Cindy G. says:

    I stand for a large part of my crafting time- cutting paper, cutting fabric, silk screening, painting objects, and crafty ironing (because I almost never iron for any other reason). I also stand for most of the day for my job (I’m a teacher, so much of that standing is walking around the classroom), and I definitely feel it at the end of a long day (either teaching or crafting!). I never would have thought to get a mat like this for my craft room, but now I can see what a great idea it is!

  21. #21 - Michele T says:

    OMG!! These mats would be awesome!! I don’t know what happened in the last few days, but the heals of my feet are killing me!! I thought it was because I was wearing my ‘new’ slippers all the time, so I switched back to my Crocks and still I experienced aching heals!! (You don’t think it has anything to do with my turning 50 tomorrow???!! lol)

  22. #22 - Genevieve Jock says:

    These are so nice! I would love to have one for my new kitchen where I spend most of my time these days. I especially like the beveled edge. Thanks!

  23. #23 - KathieB says:

    Oh my goodness… I’ve been thinking that I needed something like this in my kitchen at the spot where I do all my food prep. Delighted to get such a good recommendation. Thanks for the chance to win one!

  24. #24 - Joan Fowler says:

    I continually have back aches when standing at my craft table. If this mat works, I would spend a lot more time crafting and less time in front of my computer.

  25. #25 - Tracy Altieri says:

    My step-son has one of these in front of his food prep area, and it’s heaven! I would love one of my own!

  26. #26 - sharron says:

    I would love to win one of these for my Dear Husband to use while he is working at his workbench.
    He is such a Great Mr Fix It and keeps all of us at the top of his Hunny Do list!
    I love your studio.
    Happy New Year!

  27. #27 - Celeste says:

    Thanks so much for the chance! I could see myself really being able to use one of these mats in my kitchen.

  28. #28 - Debbie Metti says:

    Oh how I need one of these wonderful mats. AS I’ve gotten older I can’t stand as long & this would surely help me as I love to cook & it would be perfect in my kitchen. Thanks for the chance to win & Happy New Year!

  29. #30 - Janel says:

    I would love one of these in my kitchen. Then when I craft at the kitchen table I can just move it from the usual place in front of the sink to the table.

  30. #31 - Morgan says:

    what a great way to kick-start a healthy 2014! thank you for the giveaway!

  35. #36 - Melanie M. says:

    Borrowing a phrase from a good friend….You’re Pretty. 🙂

  36. #37 - Kathy Waxler says:

    This sounds like a great idea to make it easier to stand for relatively long periods of time – great for cookie-making sessions, I think.

  37. #38 - Smee says:

    Sweet Mary! I have drooled over a wellness mat for about 2 years! I just haven’t gotten around to purchasing one yet – THIS WOULD BE AMAZING! I’m already addicted to your blog, this offer has me both giddy and hoping! Thanks for the chance!

  38. #39 - Susan Warder says:

    The studio is wonderful! I never thought about a cushy mat for standing. Now if it could strap on to shoes, even better : )!

  39. #40 - Adrieanna says:

    Would love to win one of these, I recently converted my garage into a studio and it would be so nice to have one of these under my feet when I work…..

  40. #41 - Georgie Evans says:

    I love a good mat to stand on. I love the one at my stove and could use one at the sink as well! It really does make a difference on how you feel while standing.

  41. #42 - karin m says:

    These look great, it is really hard to stand for long periods crafting!

  42. #43 - Beth Col says:

  43. #44 - Wendi Galczik says:

    Oh, could I ever use one of these!
    Since i sell outdoors (under a pop-up canopy) all year in all weather, I go home aching all over..this would go a long way towards easing up on my poor back and knees..
    Even if I don’t win, thanks for the post..now I know what to look for..

  44. #45 - Heather S says:

    This would be so great to win and use! I would use it in my studio and my kitchen!

  50. #51 - Alicia says:

  51. #52 - brittany o says:

    These are so practical, and yet attractive too!

  52. #53 - Robyn Brown says:

    This would be so wonderful when at my quilting table.

  55. #56 - John Kemp says:

  57. #58 - Dawn says:

    That looks amazing! I am always nicely surprised when I stand on my mom’s mat and think, “I could use one of these!”

  58. #59 - Lynn Osborne says:

    How funny to see this today! Over the last few days I have been reading articles about the value of standing for part of the day while working instead of sitting 100% of the time. A cushioned floor mat was one of the recommendations. Thanks for the chance to win.

  59. #60 - Cheryl Strommen says:

    I need to look into a mat like this for my very-hard tile floor in the kitchen. Cooking and cleaning shouldn’t hurt my feet!

  60. #61 - Mary says:

    Oh, my gosh! My feet thank you for the information about the WellnessMats. I like to stand, too, when I’m crafting, and these look wonderful.

  61. #62 - Sue DeHaan says:

    I can think of a few places where we could definitely use these. Not having corners curling up would be great, I’m always tripping over those!

  62. #63 - g says:

    Every day makes this look more and more intriguing especially if it means less trips to the chiropractor! Thanks

  63. #64 - Laura says:

    My parents have these at their business where everyone is on their feet all day. Walking across them is absolutely heavenly. I would love to have one of these in my studio and one in front of the kitchen sink – the two places I find my legs, feet, and lower back start to really ache.

  64. #65 - SmilynStef says:

    Would love one of these for my studio.

  65. #66 - Rita Self says:

  66. #67 - Jessica Dougherty says:

    These look so cool? I would love to have these throughout my house!

  67. #68 - Valerie says:

    I would use one of these in my craft room. I like to sit/lean on a stool while barefoot while crafting and that would be feel nice underfoot!

  68. #69 - berta says:

    I used a mat similar to this at my old job, very comfy to stand on. I do a lot of my crafting standing up, this would be perfect! Thanks for the chance to win 🙂

  70. #70 - Sarah Cook says:

    I could gaze at your lovely studio forever! It is so cheerful and welcoming.

  71. #71 - Peggy B says:

    How much are these? I would love to have one in the kitchen to help my back from hurting so much when standing for long periods of time.
    At 71 we don’t like to stand too long!! lol
    As for crafting….I am wondering how they would stand up to a daily use of a rolling chair. Altho I imagine they may not be large enough for that purpose. Or do they come in different sizes?

  72. #72 - Nicole h. says:

    I’ve been looking for a runner like this for my kitchen. Maybe I could stencil it to make it a bit cutter?

  73. #73 - Leslie says:

    Oh, oh oh! Pick me! Pick me! I can see myself standing on one of these mats in my kitchen and my feet and legs loving the feeling.

  83. #83 - Linda on the Prairie says:

    I tried these mats in a friend’s kitchen and would love to have one for my craft area. I stand when I stamp and paint, creating havoc with my sciatic nerve.

  84. #84 - Deb McKathan says:

    I would love one of these wellness mats. The hard part would be whether it would go in the kitchen or the craft room! Thanks for the opportunity and happy new year!

  91. #91 - Kym says:

    I’d love to use one of these in my Kitchen. Thanks!

  92. #92 - Nicole says:

    I would love one of these in front of the tub in the bathroom.

  93. #93 - Roxane says:

  94. #94 - Dawn J says:

    Oooh I’d love one of these! My back hurts if I stand in the kitchen too long.

  95. #95 - Kim Stewart says:

  96. #96 - Diana Kocunik says:

    I have needed to look into a mat for when I stand while I longarm quilt.

  97. #97 - Jennifer Wilson says:

    My hairdresser has one of these! Fabulous. I desperately need one for the kitchen.

  102. #102 - Becky Smith says:

    After a recent move, I set up my studio for standing work rather than sitting. This would be a great help!

  103. #103 - VickyC says:

    I could be so much more comfortable crafting using this WellMat.

  104. #104 - Paula M says:

    I worked at a coffee shop and no matter what I wore on my feet they always ached from standing and moving so little. Walking is much easier on the feet but for when you need to stand a mat like this would be very helpful!

  105. #105 - Jennifer says:

    Most of us sit too much these days – this is just the thing to encourage us to be up on our feet more often!

  106. #106 - Choo Choo says:

  107. #107 - Mary Ann Potter says:

  108. #108 - Taryn T. says:

    Thanks for the chance to win! I think this would be perfect for my husband. He has to stand at work ALL day, and then comes home and loves to cook. His poor heels have even started to crack!

  109. #109 - Beatriz says:

    My feet are crying for this mat!

  110. #110 - Vallie says:

    Wow, this looks like just what I need in my kitchen. Seems I’m standing in there for hours. They have these types of mats where I used to work cashiering. They are a dream if you’re stuck on your feet all day! 🙂 Thanks for the review!

  111. #111 - Dawn says:

    This would be great on my knees when I’m standing in the kitchen.

  112. #112 - Kelly D says:

  114. #114 - Skitzo Leezra Studio says:

    Keep up the blog and the Instagram posting; I enjoy peeking inside your inspired world.

  115. #115 - Melissa M says:

    With one of these, I might be tempted to try this standing desk thing that everyone is talking about. My biggest fear about a standing desk was fatigue, but this would help a lot.

  116. #116 - Shawn says:

    I want one!

  117. #117 - Danee says:

    My hair stylist has one of these and I have commented on how she can wear flat, ballet shoes all day and she replied “Only because I stand on this mat”. That is a true testament of the product’s effectiveness.

  118. #118 - Shannon Metzger says:

    My achy breaky feet could use one of these wonderful mats!

  119. #119 - Colleen Elkin says:

    Oh, man! My feet are screaming for one of these Wellness Mats!!

  123. #123 - Juline says:

    This would be a super replacement for the rug I have in front of my stove…more cushiony AND much easier to clean…looks like an awesome product!

  124. #124 - kelly cross says:

    I could use these at my shop!

  125. #125 - Peg Adams says:

    Thanks for the chance to win one of these fantastic mats. I’ve had one at my kitchen sink for several years & it’s a leg saver for sure. Great to use just about anywhere one has to stand in one place for any length of time.

  126. #126 - Kathy M. says:

  132. #132 - sherry grove says:

  133. #133 - rayraycartucci says:

    Good place for it! It would be great for my scoliosis!

  135. #135 - Julia says:

    Standing at my craft table as well!
    Would be wonderful to have such a stylish mat.
    Thank you…

  136. #136 - Margaret Mary Myers says:

    Wow. My grandmother had one that looked like this and for this purpose…when I was a teenager (I’m 60 now). So cool to find this once again.

  137. #137 - Margaret Mary Myers says:

    PS. I realize the drawing is over. I just was excited to see a mat like my grandmother had. 🙂
