- Pack a lunch
Avoid the urge to head to the vending machine or the closest fast-food restaurant on your break. Bring a healthy lunch and snacks from home. Not only will this save you on calories but also save you some money.
- Take the stairs
Instead of using the elevator, take the stairs to get a little bit of a work out. The more times you do it in a day, the more calories you’ll burn.
- Drink Tea- avoid coffee
Although it can be argued that caffeinated tea has less caffeine than coffee that has been proven not to be the case. Tea can also hydrate your body since it mainly consists of H2O, while coffee has stimulants in it that can reduce the energy level once the caffeine wears off.
- Stretch it out
There are many stretches you can do from your desk. However, just getting up and stretching your arms, legs and back every once in a while can help you stay focused longer.
- Take your breaks
Sometimes you are just too busy to take a lunch. So you decide to work through it. After all you brought your lunch, right? But studies have shown it’s very important to take your break away from the desk. This gives your brain a rest and you will be more productive when you return.
