Mastering Ten Essential Life Skills Not Taught In Schools

okay. The key is to find what works for you and make it a regular part of your life.

Let’s talk about the importance of physical fitness, another essential life skill often overlooked in our education system. Regular physical activity can reduce the risk of heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes, and some cancers. It can also improve your mood, boost your energy levels, and promote better sleep. But did you know that even the way you sit or stand can impact your health? That’s where the health benefits of an electric stand-up desk come into play. By using a sit-stand desk, you can alleviate back pain, improve posture, and burn more calories compared to sitting all day. So how to choose the best standing desk? Look for one that is electric height adjustable to accommodate your specific needs.

Another life skill that is not taught in schools but is crucial for every adult is critical thinking and problem-solving. It’s about analyzing information, asking the right questions, and making informed decisions. It’s a skill that comes in handy in all aspects of life, from choosing the best sit-stand desk for your home office to resolving conflicts at work or making important life decisions.

Finally, let’s discuss resilience. Life is full of ups and downs, and it’s how we handle these challenges that define us. Resilience is the ability to bounce back from adversity, adapt to change, and keep going in the face of hardship. It’s about learning from our mistakes and failures, not letting them define us. Schools may not teach us this directly, but it’s a skill that we can cultivate over time.

In conclusion, while our formal education system provides us with a wealth of knowledge in various fields, there are many important life skills that we must learn outside the classroom. From financial literacy to effective communication, time management, cooking, empathy, self-care and mental health awareness, physical fitness, critical thinking, and resilience – these are all essential skills that can significantly enhance our quality of life.

Let’s not forget the importance of continuous learning and adaptation. Life is a never-ending journey of growth and discovery. So let’s embrace every opportunity to learn, grow, and become the best versions of ourselves.

Great service and really quick shipping. It is great to know that you are getting quality parts from a Scandinavian manufacturer with your standing desk purchase rather than the cheap knock off stuff you get from other major brands. Reasonably priced for the quality too!

Guy was very accommodating with meeting him at a time that suited me. He assembled the desk prior to me collecting so I only had to carry it inside with help (it's pretty heavy). The desk is great, the storage racks underneath with the 6 x built in powerpoints was worth the extra money. I have a functioning & tidy workplace.
Guy was brilliant, I highly recommend.

Have now purchased 2 stand up office desks off Guy, benchmark sales service from him, all via email, so easy; from quote to plug in, only matched by the strong quality of these machines, solid and stable. If only everything in life was this easy and reliable.

I purchased an EDesk this month from Ergomotion, and it was a remarkably smooth transaction. Guy was eager to answer all my questions before my purchase. As a first-time buyer of a standing desk, I truly appreciated how he addressed my queries with thorough details and provided options within my budget.

The delivery process was also smooth, despite a slight delay in the ETA. Guy ensured I received all necessary updates from the courier/removalist.

I've been using the desk for a couple of weeks now and I'm satisfied with it. It's sturdy on all height adjustments and the motor works as expected. I also like oak finish because it's clean-looking and suits my room setup.

Overall, I'm happy with my purchase and I'll definitely recommend Ergomotion to someone looking for their desk needs.

I've had an ergomotion desk for 10 years. It's still as good today as it was brand new. Over the years Guy has always responded promptly to any guidance I've needed (mostly help putting the desk back together after removalists take it apart).

Great service from Guy and the team at Ergomotion! Helped with all my queries and was able to source a standing desk part for me when many others weren't able! Highly recommend!

Skip the big name brands and buy from Guy instead, 10/10 linak parts with a very well built tabletop.

I purchased the edesk from Guy at Ergomotion. Guy was a pleasure to deal with and the desk arrived the next day. Guy was highly knowledgeable on the desk and provided very prompt support on the installation. I can highly recommend Ergomotion.
