Take A Moment For Yourself

Midday High

It’s 3 p.m. and staring at your computer screen just isn’t an option anymore. You’d do anything to break up the day and keep your heavy eyelids open so you stroll to the vending machine for a sugary pick-me-up.
For many of us, this scene is a daily occurrence. Try one of these tips that's sure to power you through the rest of your day.
  • Grab a friend and go on a brisk walk outside for a change of scenery.
  • Do some simple breath work at your desk and if you have a little more time, take a mini meditation break.
  • Try standing instead of sitting. You'll burn 1.5 more calories than you would sitting.
  • Hungry? Drink a glass of water first (if water's too boring, try coconut water) to see if you're actually hungry or dehydrated. 
  • If it is hunger, avoid the sugar—it'll make you sleepier—instead, snack on something healthier like granola or nuts.
  • An overall big way to avoid the slump is to exercise in the morning before heading into work.
  • Last but not least, if you have a little privacy, try office yoga to get your blood flowing again.
