I know I’ve talked to you about anti fatigue mats several times before. Hopefully you remember all about the benefits such as relief of back pain and pressure on the joints. I’ve talked to you about how safety fatigue mats help prevent work related injuries which can save an employer thousands of dollars. I’ve also pointed out all the benefits you may not realize you’re getting, like less fatigue in your normal life.
Have I taken my own advice? Nope. I’ve been in school for 5 weeks now, and still no sign of a drainage mat or even in areas where drainage is not needed rubber non slip mats. It’s definitely time to get my own little inexpensive 2’x3’ anti fatigue floor mat so I can stand on it. I have more aches and pains in my hips and back than I’m used to. It’s unbearable! You know the saying that says “Those who can’t teach”? Well that’s me; with all the information (and access to products) I have, you’d think I’d have optimized my life. I live in a delusional world where bad things don’t happen to me. I like to believe that while muscle stiffness and body aches are something everybody feels, I’m immune. Or if something does happen I pretend it won’t last long; probably hurting myself more. I don’t know why I feel this way, because obviously my lack of a proper anti fatigue flooring is really taking a toll. Don’t be like me- if you’re on your feet a lot, I really suggest getting proper flooring. It’s one of those things that I personally look at as added, unnecessary, comfort which isn’t worth $13.99. It’s definitely not a luxury. As a necessity, $13.99 is really nothing compared to somewhere between $10,000 and $125,000 for hip replacement surgery.

I went for my now monthly haircut at my local barber last Friday. I’ll not name it since it’s faux pas to frequent the bigger chains for haircuts or so I’ve heard. What was interesting to note, however, was that after the incessant and very cheery bashing of my hairstyle choice (mullets, it seems, are the thing of hillbilly’s, hooligans, and fellows of ill-repute), I couldn’t help but be surprised at how I almost didn’t notice the anti fatigue mats / salon mats posted at every single barbers’ station.
I’ve been told this over and over and over again that “Once you start working here (MatsMatsMats.com), you will scrutinize the type and style of mats EVERYWHERE YOU GO!” Well, it certainly has rung true to the day. It’s like the first time you notice a car on the street and thereafter feel like you’re now seeing it and recognizing it everywhere. It’s easy to under appreciate that these ladies (and gentlemen) are literally on their feet all day. They’ll get tired. If they get tired, they’ll make mistakes. My mop and mistakes are not two concepts I want hanging around each other. While my hairstyle choice may not be the ladies’ favorite (they’ll come around), I’m sure as hell glad that at least the marble fatigue mat (the most popular anti-fatigue mats for pharmacists and hair salons) allowed my stylist to be comfortable enough at 6:30pm at her station to not make my lady-killing mullet (yes I am growing out like I once did my beard) anything less than fabulous.
An anti fatigue floor mat may be just what you need (or if you are an employer, it may be just what your employees need) to enable you to be more comfortable and therefore more productive at work. It’s definitely worth a try – don’t you think?

My name is Chris and I have been working for MatsMatsMats.com for almost two years. Before working for this company, I had no idea there was such a demand for so many different types of mats! It’s crazy… mats are literally everywhere!
Recently I’ve been talking to a lot of customers who are interested in purchasing anti fatigue mats for their homes, their employees and/or themselves. Many of them, who are replacing their old fatigue mats, are shocked when they receive a quote from me - because they previously paid much more for the same or similar product. I can’t get over the amount of money people spend on these things. They don’t need to be so expensive… at least not on our site.
At first, I thought an anti fatigue floor mat was an unnecessary expense. Then, I decided to do a little research and I found out that there are tons of advantages to having an anti fatigue mat. An anti fatigue mat can
- Reduce spinal compression and increases circulation
- Help minimize heat loss through feet
- Minimize noise
- Using an Anti Fatigue mat daily can make you less prone to sickness, stress and strain
Now I know why doing dishes at home seems to stress me out. My back hurts, my neck hurts, my legs hurt- it’s really just an uncomfortable task. Prior to working here, I assumed it was just because I was hunched over, but fortunately, our Cushion Comfort mats fixed the problem.

If you are a business owner or manager the quickest, cheapest and easiest way to get your employees to work harder, make less mistakes and be safer at the same time may be antifatigue matting.
Anti fatigue mats make the workplace more productive and safer by:
1. When workers are standing in one place for long periods of time back pain often results. Anti fatigue mats can eliminate or reduce the back pain and stress caused by standing for long periods of time.
2. Productivity is always a factor in the workplace. Fatigue mats can increase productivity by providing comfort to workers while they are doing their job.
3. When people are tired they tend to make more mistakes and more injuries often occur. An anti fatigue floor mat can help prevent these mistakes, injuries and fatigue.
4. A padded mat or runner for workers to stand on can also provide unintended benefits, like a reduction in the glass and material that breaks when anything falls on the mats instead of the hard floor.
5. Antifatigue Matting at work will also help reduce the slip and fall injuries. In fact, many insurance companies promote matting as one of the best solutions to slip and fall problems.
So, if you are an employee or owner of a factory, manufacturing facility, retail store or any other workplace where you or your employees are standing on your feet for long periods of time, anti fatigue matting is for you. In short, these mats are the quickest and most affordable way to increase safety, reduce injuries and relieve employee fatigue and stress.
