A midday trip to the gym, a lunchtime walk or stretch can give you the big energy boost you’re looking for.
Step away from the screen
Sometimes we just need to step away from our computer screens for a few minutes to give our eyes a break. Make a cup of tea and relax your eyes for a little bit. In order to avoid eye strain, make sure your computer is kept at arm’s length.
Switch up your tasks
If you’ve been working on the same project for a few hours, it can be mentally draining. Mix up on what you’re working on for a little productive refresh!
Play some music
Did you know music can not only help keep you feeling awake, it can increase your concentration. Pop on a good focus playlist and get stuck in.
Get enough sleep
A simple but effective trick to keeping your energy levels up is making sure to get enough sleep.
High stress levels can have a physical effect on your body, and leave you feeling fatigued, overwhelmed and moody. To combat this, try and add some mindfulness to your daily routine.
