What’s Your Best “5 Minute Break” Idea?
I’ve been focusing on improving the quality of my short breaks during the day, and I thought I’d ask you: What’s YOUR best idea for a quick break?
Some favorites (and a new one I just tried):
A set of pull ups, a set of push ups, and some body-weight squats really works for me. Takes 3 minutes, and pays huge dividends.
Another is a 5-10 minute meditation. Eyes closed, sitting with legs crossed, zen-breathing.
Taking a walk to the health-food store to get a fresh organic vegetable juice is REALLY working for me these days. Complete change of channel.
A 20-minute nap in the afternoon is magic (I know, it’s longer than 5 minutes… but this one is worth it!).
Yesterday, Rob (who works with me) recommended a 10-second headstand as an “energy booster.” I just tried it for the first time today – FANTASTIC.
So what do you recommend for a quick break to recharge, relax, or rejuvenate?
Leave your break idea in the comments below, and let’s help each other build a heathly, positive habit of taking breaks every hour or two throughout the day!
