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

“I just wanted to touch base as another school year draws to end. I cannot thank you enough for how smoothly this year went. Chef Felix [Herrera] and his staff made it seamless in a year with lots of wrinkles.    ”

“This is EXACTLY the type of service and experience we had always envisioned for our patients at MSK Koch!  Thank you Chef Ryan for going out of your way for this patient and all patients and staff!”

“We can’t thank you enough for all the time and effort you put into getting this emergency shipment of water to our Waco, Tx office. As always, you guys pulled out all the stops and did everything possible to help! I know it doesn’t seem like much to you, but our employees in TX that need drinking water are truly grateful. I feel so fortunate to work with such true professionals. I think you set the bar that your competition wishes they could match!”

“I ALWAYS feel spoiled by the meal offerings at CSW (The Cambridge School of Weston) and am entirely grateful for it. As I eat today's delicious and lavish lunch (and think about yesterday's as well), I can't tell you how much I feel so well cared for here, both with the food and by the dining hall staff. CSW cares for us in so many ways, both big and small.”

“We appreciate the excellent service that is a hallmark of the Chadwick Culinart team. You all are such professionals - and you always deliver your service in such a pleasant manner! Thank you for everything you do to help make the Village events successful. We greatly appreciate your talents, efforts, and kindness.”

“With all the prep work from Winterim ramping up and classes continuing as usual, it's a busy time to be a Forman teacher. Imagine my delight, tired as I was, when I delved into the upscale-restaurant-quality chicken parmesan our dining hall served last night. Forman is all about support, and providing our students with a dinner of that quality is just as important a measure of support as anything that happens in a classroom.”

“We are so thankful and so impressed by your immediate attention to our power outage. It was such a relief to see all the equipment and workers coming in within a few hours of the outage. Thank you for serving dinner to all [the] students in a very difficult circumstance. Please extend our thanks to your workers who braved cold weather to grill hamburgers and hotdogs.”

“I wanted to recognize the individuals at the Valley Forge Site Café who have been supporting us throughout the COVID-19 Pandemic.  I have been onsite at least a few days every week since June 2020 and I noticed that the team continued to provide quality and timely service for breakfast and lunch.  They effectively packaged the food to maintain CDC guidelines. Thank you!  ”

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

“Thank you and your staff for all the care and thought you give CSW adults and students. You approach events with such care and elegance- I don’t know how you do it! Especially day after day. Please thank all your staff for their wonderful work and kind manner with all of us. Here is to a great year!”
