The Home Stretch

It’s the home stretch at work, on a  Wednesday. You’ve made it through the first half of the week but still have the second half to go. It’s just after two and you’ve probably got one thing on your mind, sleep! So you reach for the energy drink you bought, go get some coffee or scrounge around the breakroom looking for a sugar fix. But there maybe a simpler option to feel revitalized enough to finish the day and do so productively.

  1. Stand up and stretch! Sitting at your desk all day can wear anyone out but just the simple movement of getting on your feet can give you a tiny boost. Click here to view some nifty stretches you can do right in your office then try them out for yourself. So go ahead, stand up.  If you don’t have an office to move in private, find a stairwell or a small space you won’t be gawked at…unless you like that sort of thing.
  2. Music soothes the savage beast; we’ve all heard this phrase at some point in our lives. Right now that savage beast is fatigue. It’s hanging around you, stemming from the carb-a-licious lunch you had this afternoon. Blast something upbeat! Put those slow jams away, and let the rhythm get ya! Just like a beat can put your body in sync at the gym, the same can be said of the daily grind.
  3. Laugh! Laughter is the best medicine! Mainly because it’s free. But laughter can wake you up just be stretching the muscles in your face, triggers the release of endorphins, which promote a sense of well-being. Lets face it, you could be at your desk shuffling through mounds of paperwork or you could be this dance crewfunny-gif-dance

So, what are you waiting for? Go, move, get your boost on Wake Up Wednesday!
