2013 Day 17: Afternoon Drowsiness Fighter
Step 1: Sit tall in your chair.
Step 2: Extend your right arm toward the ceiling as you inhale. Imagine you're reaching for an apple on a high tree branch.
Step 3: Maintain the reach and slowly exhale with the intention of sending your hip and thigh down into your chair.
Step 4: Repeat 5 times on each side.
Sitting compresses the diaphragm, and if you don't ever adjust your posture while you sit, you actually take in less oxygen with each breath you take. That's why you can feel tired by midday.
Voice of the Editor
Which isn’t completely true. I mean, occasionally I drop by when I manage to sneak out of the nonstop frat party over at Going Concern, but I’m mostly a wallflower over there. I’m happy to say that I’ve been given express permission (or explicit orders, if you like) to wander over here to AccountingWEB more often.
Why is that, you might ask? My job is to replace the irreplaceable Gail Perry as Editor-in-Chief. What does that mean? I don’t really know! I think it’ll be fun getting a feel for things, throwing in my own thoughts here and there, and listening to the discussions you’re having about the accounting profession.
