Usually, I’m a proponent of getting your shoes on to help with productivity. But sometimes your feet need a rest, and that’s where the Lunar Mat comes in. Thankfully, I got to review one, so let’s check it out.
Lunar Mat is a foot massage mat designed for work-from-home freelancers, contractors, self-employed people, and entrepreneurs. The mat is designed by a freelancer and was created to sit beneath your desk and to accommodate your computer chair while providing several different foot-relaxation tools.
The Lunar Mat comes with a thick cushion that feels good under your feet whether you wear socks or not. The padding provides a sense of relief when you have hard floors underneath you instead of carpet.
At the top of the mat is a thick, pillow-like cushion with ridges. Here you rub the bottoms of your feet along the padding for a sort of tickling sensation. These ridges were my favorite part of the mat.
In between the ridges, there are also a series of transparent blue spinning widgets that remind me of rounded-off throwing stars. The widgets spin individually and give you another way to play with the mat while your getting work done.
TryLunarMat.com claims that the mat helps you stay focused by engaging your subconscious mind. It also states that helps relieve posture fatigue and allows for proper blood flow into the feet.
I don’t know how much truth there is to those claims, nor do I know if any research exists to back them up, but what I do know is that the Lunar Mat is an enjoyable experience, especially if you’re the fidgety type.
Overall, a pretty solid product for what it is, and I think it will be particularly useful for those of you who use standing desks. The thick cushioned mat alone will certainly provide some foot relief.
Anyway, if you want one, you can get one at TryLunarMat.com at their discounted price of $149.
