Ways to Workout During The Work Day

So the sun is shining, the weather is nice, and you’re stuck in your office all day. Finding time to be active during a jam-packed work day can be challenging. But, did you know that small bursts of physical activity throughout your day helps to increase energy levels and productivity? In general, exercise helps decrease stress levels, increase brainpower, and improve creativity, all of which lead to better job performance. Have you ever experienced that mid-day slump? Instead of grabbing a cup of coffee, try getting up and moving around with these quick ideas:

  • Stand up: just by standing up and getting the blood flowing, you can start to feel your energy levels rise. Try investing in a moveable desk with a standing option, or listen to a conference call while standing up.
  • Walk around: instead of calling or emailing a fellow office employee with a question, take a stroll over to their desk. During your lunch break, go for a short walk around the block to enjoy the fresh air.
  • Moving meetings: now that the weather is nice, get your coworkers together for a walking meeting. Physical activity can make meetings more productive by decreasing distractions from emails or text messages and increasing our energy levels to help us think more clearly and logically. Plus, some fresh air and sunshine is always nice.
  • Take the stairs: do you move from floor to floor communicating with coworkers in your building? Try taking the stairs for a quick activity break during your day.
  • Set a timer: create an alarm on your phone to go off a few times during the day, which indicates it’s time for a short break to get those juices flowing! Do some basic, office friendly exercises every time that alarm goes off – squats, walking lunches, arm circles, jumping jacks, etc.

The next time you’re looking for an energy boost, stand up, walk around, or get some fresh air. Get your coworkers involved and moving too! That way everyone increases their energy and productivity, and because everything is more fun with friends.

What our clients are saying

“Yesterday I ordered the special (Bloody Mary Burger) which was one of the best burgers I’ve ever tasted, [but] this e-mail is not to praise the burger.  Eating the burger reminded me of the great service, professionalism, the smiles, the knowledge and the great food that I have come to love each and every day.  Your team, who really work as a team, take their time to explain nutrition and meal ideas, and encourage healthy eating.  I wouldn’t change one thing about this crew. I would like to extend my heartfelt gratitude for their hard work each and every day.”

“The CulinArt team has been great to work with and has been super flexible. Having worked with other dining services at different institutions, having a dining team that is open to menu changes has been a great resource for our events. ”

“What a difference a top chef makes to student satisfaction and enjoyment of campus life!  At a recent boarding school conference, food was mentioned as a key retention method and it is really true. The comforts of home are found in good food and meals enjoyed with friends. We couldn’t be more pleased with the healthy and delicious daily options presented by our chef and his team. Frank even has a suggestion box, so he is always open to new ideas and he even offers cooking classes for our students!”

“The dinner I had tonight at Forman was not only the best meal I have had at Forman in the entire time I have been here, it was the best meal I can remember having anywhere in a long time. [It] was a restaurant quality meal, and it added to the enjoyment that the two young ladies serving me could not have been more charming. What an energizing way to finish a weekend eating a dinner like that.”

“I hope you do the food service in heaven.”

“I just wanted to give a huge compliment to the cook at Main Street. Today I had the Salmon Super Bowl and it was amazing!!!! Every day I go in there she always has something that looks too wonderful to pass up! Thank you for always having such a variety of food!”

Please thank all your staff for their wonderful work and kind manner with all of us. Here is to a great year!”

“Many, and I do mean many, thanks for a great Parents Weekend.  I heard from so many happy parents and you all work very hard to make it happen.  In gratitude and kindness…”

“I wanted to take this moment to thank you and your staff for making the Athletic Celebration absolutely wonderful. I cannot say enough great things about the event. The food was outstanding and the service was fantastic. Thank you for your help from start to finish.”
