Skip the afternoon coffee and Replace it with a Quick and Easy Office Workout!
A lot of people don’t know this about me but I work from a desk all day, 5 days a week. Weekends only a few hours. But for the most part I am sitting in a chair… I am busy creating plans for clients, replying to email or making calls to potential clients.
So it makes it tough for me to stay alert all day and instead of grabbing more coffee, I decided to start creating my own energy and getting up and moving. I found a lot of others that struggle with staying alert at their desk so I figured this would be a great workout to share.
Here is the Workout!
I recommend doing 20-30 reps and 3-4 sets!
And some extra tips to stay on track in the office…
- Pack a Lunch with Healthy Snacks so you aren’t binge eating the crap that people bring
- Bring a gallon of water so you stay hydrated through the day, this can help you stay awake, help with cravings as well as hunger
- Take walks and get outdoors (if it’s nice out) The noon sunshine can deliver 100,000 lux. When we sit in offices for the best part of the day, out of the sun, under neon and artificial lights (150-600 lux), we are depriving ourselves of the illumination of nature. Sunlight deprivation can cause a condition called seasonal affective disorder (SAD), a form of depression. It is more common in winter months, but also common in people who work long hours in office buildings.
I hope these tips help you! Make the work place happy and Share these tips with your coworkers!
