Ready, set, breathe

When we’re stressed at work, we have the tendency to not use our full range of breath. Even though you’re going 100 miles a minute, taking a few minutes to do a breathing exercise can help you make it through the day with your sanity intact.

Make yourself breakfast

Cooking can be a mindfulness exercise, and breakfast is an important meal. It starts your day off right while giving you fuel to get through more grueling tasks, like that pesky morning commute. Eggs only take a few minutes to scramble and overnight oats practically make themselves, so there’s really no excuse to start the day hungry.

Micro workouts get your endorphins going with cardio

Do a micro-workout (it’s a thing)

Workouts are great for the mind and they don’t have to be an hour long. Micro-workouts are short 10-minute bursts of exercise that engage your whole body and elevate your heart rate. You can take 10 minutes to do 30-second intervals of jump rope or squats and still get your endorphins going with some cardio.

Refresh your playlist

Refresh your playlist

We can all be creatures of habit when it comes to music, but experiencing new things can help you be more mindful. Most streaming sites recommend artists based on what you’ve played recently, so it’s easy to find something new. To really experience the sound, put your headphones on, close your eyes and be present.

Spark your creativity

Between work and working out, it’s easy to forget the importance of creativity. Every day, try dedicating 10 minutes to writing, doodling or even coloring. They’re all great for reducing stress and using your brain in a different way.
