Breathe New Life At Work
65% of my work is done on the computer.
My shoulders slump, back bends, neck hurts, eyes become sore, my brain turns to mush.
I used to complain about it and not really do anything to fix the situation!
Now I set my alarm for every hour and I fix the situation by either:
-Stretching (even just neck and shoulder rolls at my desk help- but I take my time with it)
-Geting up to pour myself more water
-Doing a chore around the house (usually food prep or laundry)
-Stopping and listening to a podcast for 10 minutes with my eyes closed
... Truly anything helps when you shift your awareness and thoughts for a little bit.
I always feel refreshed and ready to get back into it.
If your at work, try these things:
-Step outside for 2 minutes and let the sun hit your face
-Go on a walk at lunch
-Walk to a different part of the building
-Place headphones in your ears during lunch and listen to binaural beats for 10 minutes
Literally any little difference has a large impact on rejuvenating your energy!
