Day 29: Pick-Me-Ups

Here are some desk-friendly pick-me-ups from the pros at Canyon Ranch Spa in Tucson.

 
Tip 1: Every hour, stand up, put your hands on the small of your back and gently arch back as far as you can for one second. Be sure to lead from your head. Do six to eight reps. 
 
Tip 2: Don't go more than three hours without eating. Take healthy snacks to work with you. Eat a good mix of protein and carbs, such as peanut butter on apple slices.
 
Tip 3: When tension starts to build, spend three minutes taking slow, deep breaths and use all your senses to visualize something soothing.
