We're into our third week of workplace exercises, designed to help you get a little boost of energy when working long busy-season hours. We're always interested in learning what our readers do to motivate and energize themselves – whether it's physical exercise, mental exercise, or nutritious treats. Please share your favorite tips with us, and we'll pass them on to the rest of the accountants out there burning the midnight oil.

Tricep stretches
Use this exercise to strengthen the muscles in the back of the upper arm. You can do this exercise while sitting at your desk or you can stand up.
  1. Hold one end of a towel in your right hand. If you don’t have a towel handy, get creative! Use a sweater or a belt.
  2. Raise and bend right arm to drape the towel down your back. Keep your right arm in this position and continue holding onto the towel.
  3. Reach behind your lower back and grasp bottom end of the towel with your left hand.
  4. Climb your left hand progressively higher up the towel, which also has the effect of pulling your right arm down. Continue until your hands touch, or bring your hands as close as you can comfortably get to each other.
  5. Reverse positions.
Repeat 3 to 5 times each session. Hold each stretch for 10 to 30 seconds.
