Improve your mood in minutes.

Posted by on April 24, 2012 in General Interest Discussion, Motivation | 0 comments

Research has shown that just a few minutes of physical activity, especially when done out-side can improve our mood.

But what can you do with just a few minutes?

Some suggestions….

If at work: Take a non-traditional break by going for a walk. Go outside if you can but if the weather is bad, walk up and down a flight of stairs, or walk around the office or production floor. If you really want to get into it, do a set of air-squats or push-ups.

If at home: walk the dog, (he’ll appreciate that!), or walk to the corner and back, or take out the trash, or go get the mail, or do 25 jumping jacks, or… just stretch your body out a little bit. We could all stand a little more stretching!

You will return to your chores; refreshed, recharged, and with a better attitude.

Smile!  You just did something good for yourself!
