It's three o'clock in the afternoon, and you find yourself nodding off at your desk. You make your way to the break room for a cup of coffee and "something sweet." But wait!
Practice these techniques, and replace caffeine and acetaminophen with good old oxygen.
· For low energy and fatigue: Sit near the edge of your chair, holding onto the sides of your seat. Gently stretch your chest forward and up. Tilt your head back, and breathe deeply in and out through your nose. Relax into the stretch.
· While standing, raise both arms above your head and grab your left wrist with your right hand. Gently stretch to the right while breathing through your nose. Switch sides and repeat.
· For headaches and eye strain: Place your index fingers directly above the middle of your eyebrows. Press with your fingers and hold. Close your eyes and breathe deeply through your nose.
· If you're working at the computer, refocus your eyes every ten minutes by looking out the window. Once an hour, close your eyes and allow your face to soften. Slowly roll your eyes in a circle. Take a few breaths and return to action.
