The Canadian made AnthroDesk Laptop Table Tray fits the bill perfectly!  [Found here: https://www.anthrodesk.ca/laptop-table-tray-for-desk-or-bed.html or here: https://www.amazon.ca just look for “Foldable Laptop Table with Height Adjustable Legs and Tilting Tray” ]

With all the back to school and back to work buzz right now I thought that I should share with you my latest MUST HAVE item!  It’s the perfect laptop table tray that can serve everyone’s purpose.  It’s great for everyone (SERIOUSLY):  professionals, students, children, and seniors!  This simple laptop table tray is exactly what I was looking for.  I love how much more comfortable I am when writing my posts; quite simply, I can easily move from standing to sitting, from the office to the couch, and I can take it with me to the backyard or to the park!  When I need to store it away I can easily do so by folding the legs down flat.  I like how sturdy it is and how convenient it is too.

Students and children alike will discover how useful this foldable laptop table is.  It’s an amazing item to gift to your College-bound student, and a sweet table for children to use as a reading table or a table to colour on at eye level!  Remember laying stomach down on the living room rug as a child?

My mom is no longer with me; however, if she were alive and still at the long term care residence I could see this foldable laptop table being put to good use there too!  A comfortable ergonomic laptop table; such as this, could be used at craft-making or snack time.

The many uses are limitless!

Key Points:

  • MULTIPURPOSE – Use as a laptop workstation, a standing desk for office work, a TV tray for snacking, a laptop for relaxing in bed, a couch desk, a workstation in a park, or even a book/tablet stand.
  • HEALTHIER WORKING – When used in conjunction with a regular desk it enables you to work while standing; it eases tension caused by long hours sitting in the workplace.
  • EASY TO USE – Two auto-lock buttons on each side easily enable quick changes in height (adjustable from 23 cm to 31 cm). In addition, two clamps may be used to adjust the surface angle (from 0-30°).  
  • Supports up to 60 LBS, will not wobble or sway, provides a secure 52cm x 30cm stable platform for your laptop, notebook, tablet, or monitor.
  • LIGHT BUT STURDY – It can fold flat for convenient storage, is light enough to carry around, and can fit in many bags! It’s made of 100% high quality engineered wood which is environmentally friendly, strong and durable.
  • PORTABLE – You can work anywhere, simply fold the desk flat and you have your on-the-go ergonomic workstation ready.
  • SAFE – There is a ledge on the bottom which keeps your laptop safe while table is tilted.
  • NO ASSEMBLY – The best part is there’s no assembly required!

With limitless uses, I can foresee having a tough time using it in my home.  Why?  I would probably take up a lot of my time trying to hunt it down!  Will I find it in my daughter’s room?  Will I find it in the office?  Will it be left in the car after having been taken elsewhere?  I just know that everyone will want to use it.

Fortunately it’s not an expensive item at all.

Lastly, the AnthroDesk Laptop Table Tray will change how you live and work.  By reducing the amount of sitting in the same position for long periods of time you can improve your health, your productivity, and your creativity.  Research says that sitting for excessively long periods of time is a risk factor for early death, diabetes, obesity, and depression.  Sitting for long periods is actually killing us!

Be wise and take steps to ensure you change your position often.  This is exactly why the AnthroDesk Laptop Table Tray is not only useful for day-to-day use but also for your health.

It’s a great find and why I knew I had to share it with you!

Focus On What You Want #selfhelp #selflove

It isn’t always easy to be on top of your game all the time.  Everyone runs into challenging moments in life and everyone deals with those difficult moments differently.  It’s all based on a combination of life, experience, knowledge, friends, family, and experience.

I know that I’ve had my fair share of challenging moments in life!  At times, I didn’t even know if I was going to make it through.  Somehow I have made it thus far.  It’s mind boggling and it’s a relief.

I’m not a doctor, nor am I an “expert” but I have had some success in recovering from my challenges in life.  What I’ve learned is that by being happy, enthusiastic and driven it will spark a passion within you to propel forward.   In order to move forward, there are a few things that we can do to help ourselves:

1.       Brainstorm  – if you’re not sure of what sparks happiness for you and/or what you really are passionate about then you should set aside some alone time and actually think about it.  By spending time thinking about it, and/or by exchanging ideas with others, you might end up discovering something of interest.  You might even get to try that special something … that special something that interests you!!!  

2.       Think Back – Has it been a while since you last felt passionate about something?  Have you lost that feeling?  Think back to what you were passionate about ? Perhaps when you were a young adult?  Whenever it was, you just have to focus on making it a part of your current life once again!

3.       Have You Tried Making a Bucket List? – This suggestion seems easy for some, and for others it can be extremely difficult.  Whichever it is for you, just try making a list of all the things you want to do but have not yet had the opportunity to do.  Feeling excited? You should begin feeling some excitement about the potentional of doing some of those things you’ve always wanted to do … don’t forget to cross each one of them off of your list once you do!

I’m overweight [obese really] and definitely not fit; however, that doesn’t mean that I’m not trying!  I’m 50 years old ~ugh!~ and I’ve gone through some difficult experiences over the past several years but now I’m feeling better, stronger, and even hopeful … for change.

Disclosure: I have been compensated to share this post. The opinions on this blog are my own.

I have never professed to be ‘in shape’ or even ‘put together’ but I have made some changes to my life so that I can get onto the path to be healthier.  I don’t know if I’ll ever be able to get back to what I once was but I think I owe it to myself to try.  Even though I’m 50, the truth is I don’t know if I will live to be 100!  The best thing to do is to focus.

Since January, and up until my recent trip to Vancouver, I had been routinely exercising on my treadmill and I was eating pretty healthfully.  Like everyone (I suppose), I got sidetracked with my vacation.  You know how it is?  Friends and family want you to come have a drink and/or meal to celebrate the fact that you’re together again, you go see this or go see that and BAM there’s an ice cream shop!  Damn it.  What are you going to do?  I say: “it’s ok to slack off or else you won’t be able to enjoy the moment”.  Now that I’m back it’s time to get back on track!  I’m not going to beat myself up about a pound … or two … or three … or whatever!  There’s no point in being hard on myself and it’s not going to be positive at all.  I’m going to embrace the break and accept it as having been a positive, re-energizing experience that I so desperately needed  …  and I’m going to embrace the hard work I’m going to have to do to get to a healthier weight.

There isn’t an agenda.  I’m not trying to get to size zero.  I’ve been a size zero and it wasn’t healthy, good, or glamorous.  I need to reduce my weight for my heart, my back, and my overall health.

It’s sad actually.  There are many that don’t have to worry about their weight, nor do they have to struggle.  Then there are many that struggle with their weight … whether it be to gain weight or to lose weight.  It’s a constant battle!  I’ve struggled with my weight all of my life, and it feels like I’ve been every size there is!!!  I know that’s not true but I have been every size from zero to eighteen!  I believe I’ve been every one of those sizes twice!  I remember seeing my mom struggle with her weight too.  Perhaps it’s genetics?   Perhaps it has to do with anxiety or depression?  Whatever it is doesn’t change the fact that I have to make changes!  Somehow I have to make progress.

One thing I don’t have to compromise is my comfort.  That’s important you know!  I rely on my SKECHERS to give me the cushioning protection I need.  The SKECHERS Ultra Flex – First Take shoe is a slip on sporty comfort walking and training sneaker with an air-cooled memory foam insole, and an Ultra Flex midsole (a highly flexible comfort midsole with superior impact cushioning protection and remarkable energy return).  I take my SKECHERS with me on every trip I go on.

As you can see for yourself, British Columbia had no idea that Jeannine was about to hit them hard with style, comfort, and class!  I wore my SKECHERS everywhere because I need comfort because of my lower back issues, and because I need style

On this trip out West I also took my SKECHERS Apparel – Nite Owl™ Activate Packable Windbreaker Jacket.  It’s very handy to fold up your jacket into front welt pocket … basically converting into a fanny pack!  It’s also handy that it’s water-resistant fabric to help keep you dry, and that the polka dot print is reflective (this keeps you safe if you decide to go for a walk/jog/run at night).  While this windbreaker jacket is especially perfect for travel, it’s also awesome for use right here in my beloved Toronto & GTA!

For those that follow me, you know about my love for SKECHERS.  For those that happened to come across this post, you should know that SKECHERS is one brand that I really stand behind.  It’s affordable, fresh, innovative, caters to a variety of needs, seasons and styles all the while providing support and comfort.

With SKECHERS, you can’t go wrong.
