When you’re only granted a 15-minute break, it can be difficult to decide everything you want to accomplish before the clock runs out. Luckily there are several things you can do during your break to help you feel rejuvenated for the rest of the day. Test out one of our 15 options during your next “15”.
1. Take a walk
Sure you’ve been on your feet most of your shift, but breathing in some fresh air will do your body and mental state wonders.
2. Take a nap
On the other hand, a quick catnap will leave you feeling refreshed after your break. Just remember to set an alarm!
3. Do some yoga
Help your body get rejuvenated by doing some yoga poses. It’ll help keep the blood moving in your body and will keep you totally Zen…at least until your break is over.
It’s a marathon, not a sprint…except when it comes to eating during a 15-minute break. Live those 15 minutes to the fullest and eat anything you want.
