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

“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.”

“I would like to thank you and your staff for helping to make our Annual Holiday Party a Great Success.  You did an Amazing job from the décor, the food and the service you provided! I have heard nothing but great comments. As always, I enjoyed working with you and your team.”

“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.”

“Thank you for including me today in the food waste demonstration/[chef competition] and flattering me with the role of “judge.” I will proudly don the [Stop Food Waste Day] apron the next time I plan an “event” in our own kitchen. I think this is a very worthwhile cause and the statistics you read off are staggering. They, alone, can intimidate a home chef, let alone be the “driver’ for a professional one.”

“What a wonderful dinner we had tonight for our international families. The food was delicious and well presented as well.”

“I just wanted to send a quick note acknowledging the wonderful food and service provided by our new vendor.  The food was delicious and the students consistently commented on how amazing everything was.  What a difference! In addition, the staff and management were so easy to deal with – very professional.  They were punctual, responsive and attentive to our needs.  Thank you again for making a positive change to the quality of life of our students.”

“Thank You for once again going above and beyond to ensure that our programs are a success. Your willingness to customize menus as well as provide your expert guidance to develop a well-rounded selection of offerings is what keeps us coming back! The food is always exceptional! Our programs would not be a success without the CulinArt team!”

“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!”

“Just want to take a moment to thank you for running such a great kitchen. It’s been a huge benefit to have such a delicious and various assortment of foods to choose from, all without having to leave the building. I’m always amazed at the daily variety and the quality of food that is offered. The cafeteria has made my food choices as easy as can be.”
