Step away from the screen.
Give your eyes a break from screen time. Put movement back on the menu at lunch – try a different spot each day. Some brisk walking there and back will help you work up an appetite. Tupperware kind of person? Take a walk afterwards and enjoy the fresh air – another one of the benefits of walking
Keep your cool.
If you’re working movement into your day, staying fresh is key. Slip Sure Women Bright Compressed Antiperspirant Deodorant or Sure Men Active Dry Compressed Antiperspirant Deodorant into your desk drawer. They’re compressed cans but pack enough punch to help keep you dry all day long, so you can get active. Your day won’t know what hit it
Take things one step at a time.
You don’t have to run miles for a lunch-hour workout. Skip the lift to tackle the stairs and your office doubles as a gym. After all, you’re lifting your bodyweight against gravity with every step. Too easy? Head down and go again. It’s called incline training. We call it elevating your lunch break
Stay social – and active.
It’s not always easy to take lunch away from your desk. But it pays to move. Try transferring calls to your mobile and pacing the office. Think of all the emails you send – cut them down by going to your co-worker’s desk for a chat, instead. Even micro-movements like these can kick-start your muscles
An intensive lunch break.
Pack an intensive lunch-break workout into a small space of time. Go to a gym or nearest green space and mix bouts of intense running with squats and star jumps, opening up your joints and stimulating muscles. High intensity intervals like this deliver full workout benefits in a time-friendly session
Get the creative juices flowing.
No one enjoys drawn-out lunch meetings. You have eating to do, after all. Round up your colleagues and take the brainstorm to a nearby coffee shop. The walk will wake you up and encourage bright ideas. If nothing else, it’s an excuse to grab better coffee than what the office kitchen has on offer
