When the sun is shining and comfortable
weather is calling you outdoors, focusing on
tasks at work can become a challenge. Workdays
are often long and strenuous, making that blue sky
and fresh air all the more tempting.
Don’t let a full to-do list bog you down. In fact, taking
a break from your desk and averting your eyes from
the computer may actually help you mentally reset and
increase effi ciency through the remainder of the day.
Consider these popular ways to disconnect for a
short while so you can take on busy days without feeling
1. Stretch - After hours of sitting, stretching from
head to toe can be a good way to get physically active
if you’re short on time and stuck at your desk. Neck,
shoulder, arm, back and leg stretches are all easy ways
to stand up and disengage from the computer. Another
trick: practice wrist exercises to avoid injury or strain
2. Go for a Walk - If you have a few minutes to spare,
leave the offi ce or your desk at home entirely and head
outside for a walk. A stroll through your neighborhood
or the city sidewalks can provide the fresh air and physical
activity your body craves.
3. Take Five Outside - On hot days when a mid-workday
walk might not be the right refresh, skip it and
simply fi nd a shady spot to sit down. You can enjoy the
benefi ts of fresh air and sunlight without getting too
4. Rest Your Eyes - Follow the rule of 20s. If you’re
working a computer job, eyestrain may be a serious
concern. Give them a break by looking 20 feet away for
20 seconds every 20 minutes.
5. Enjoy a Favorite Snack - Push that offi ce chair
away from the computer and treat yourself to a bite of
something you enjoy. For example, Nestlé rallies nut
butter bombs are a perfect cure for those back-to-back
video calls, delivering a balance of permissibility and
indulgence while helping you rally through your workday.
Available in three craveable fl avors - raspberry
peanut butter, brownie almond butter and salted cashew
butter - the chilled delights combine decadent chocolate
and smooth nut butter for a rich burst of fl avor with no
preservatives, artifi cial fl avors or artifi cial colors.
6. Check in with Friends - Squeeze in a midday chat
to catch up with a friend or coworker. Socializing is a
feel-good way to take your mind off work even for just
a few minutes.
7. Sip an Afternoon Coffee - If caffeine gives you that
much-needed jolt to fi nish out the workday, head to
your favorite local shop for a refreshing iced beverage.
Pair it with a chilled snack like Nestlé rallies nut butter
bombs for a perfect sweet and savory afternoon pickme
