The Charcoal Desk helps you work with focus and energy the entire day.

It makes sure you work
in sync with your natural biological rhythms by
reminding you to take
breaks when your brain
needs to recover.

YOUR BRAIN WORKS
IN PEAKS AND SLUMPS.

Your brain works best during peaks.

This is when your brain
is working at its maximum
capacity by burning
through fuels like oxygen
and glucose. You have the
most mental energy
during peaks.

Your brain slows down during slumps.

As the brain fires on all
cylinders during peaks,
metabolic wastes pile up
and it runs out of fuel.
It switches to recovery
mode to refuel and get
rid of the wastes.

WORKING THROUGH
SLUMPS WILL RUIN
YOUR DAY.

Your brain produces stress hormones.

When you work through
your slumps, your brain
thinks its an emergency and
reacts by working on
overdrive. It pushes itself to
work harder by producing
stress hormones like
adrenaline and cortisol.

Your brain doesn’t
get to recover.

This prevents you from
recovering properly. You
end up feeling worse
during slumps and the
poor recovery also
sabotages your next
peak, completely ruining
your productivity.

The Charcoal Desk
reminds you to recover
during slumps.

When you take breaks during slumps,

you accelerate your recovery.

You’ll feel much less tired during slumps and
be completely refreshed during peaks.
