unwind week: get moving

Without a doubt, sitting in front of a computer all day can begin to take its toll, especially when the work days are longer than usual. So after leaving the computer at the office and before heading straight to the laptop at home, insert a little time for some outdoor exercise. Even if you are bringing work home with you, taking just half an hour to forget it all and move around in the sunshine can be amazingly invigorating.

My personal favorite exercise for unwinding is a long, evening run, but often when time is short, I’ve found that even a brisk walk around the block can be quite refreshing. If your neighborhood or the weather doesn’t permit such activity, a jumprope and an open space will also do quite nicely. Anything to get your blood pumping and your endorphins flowing. I believe Elle Woods said it best, “Exercise gives you endorphins. Endorphins make you happy. Happy people just don’t shoot their husbands, they just don’t.” They also produce higher quality work, I might add.
