Peel your eyes off that computer screen for five to ten minutes every hour. Look at a point across the room of if possible out a window and rest a bit. You can also stand up and stretch a little. Take frequent short breaks rather than infrequent longer breaks. You will feel more energized and refreshed throughout the day.
Breathe it OutWhen you are taking a break or if you have just read an email that makes your blood boil, stop, sit quietly and take 10 deep breaths, exhaling and inhaling slowly on each breath. You will be amazed how much this can help calm those nerves and get you thinking clearly again.
Walk or Run it OffTry splitting your lunch break in half and work in a short run or walk. This is especially helpful if you have had a stressful morning or anxiety building up for an afternoon presentation. Try it and you will feel better, more relaxed and ready to take on the second half of your day.
Right Food = Right MindJunk food will make you feel sluggish, add on the pounds and make it difficult to concentrate. Try bringing your lunch and packing healthy snacks you can eat throughout the day. You will quickly feel the difference at work, in your waistline and in your wallet.
