Good to have a mental break too. I work 10 hour days at a desk, and I found that walking on all my breaks (two 15s and 20 minutes of my 30 minute lunch) helps TREMENDOUSLY as well.

Good practical advice; however, the lead-in quip to article mentioned those who stand on [their] feet all day yet there was no mention of how to deal with that.

I sat up straight while reading the article! I work from home usually, and slouching is a bad habit I need to break.

Everything sounded great except the walking meeting. However a brainstormning meeting with two or three people may be great. It's just hard to take notes when you're walking. Maybe I will try it with one person on my team, we'll call it action research.

This is the reminder I needed! I have been snacking (started with the bad stuff - junk - have moved onto healthier items - edamame, rice cakes - but still snacking in order to stay awake is not a good habit) and drinking tons of coke zeros... next week will bring a fresh start.

I work retail. In the event that I have a lunch break, I've started walking around the mall, or during my fifteen, I do some moderate stretching in the breakroom. When we're slow of an evening I get on the sales floor, walk, greet customers (your boss will love that), and clean the cases (I work in the jewelry department). I don't hit the vending machines on my breaks and instead chug water and eat an orange or protein bar I carry in my purse.

These sound great for those in an office, but not all of us do. I work in retail. I'm walking around all the time. I sit maybe 10 minutes in 6 hours. What about us? What is there for us to do to keep our minds focused?

You'd think with no job it would be easier for me to do the stuff I need to at my desk...but ...NO.... luckily I work out in the basement but I would like to do both

I am guilty of this. I am a teacher and most of my day is spent trying to get students to focus and do their work at a table. I will try to have them move more!

Why not try a scientifically proven nutraceutical like neurapex (www.neurapex.com)? It will help keep you focused and, when you're focused 'time flies' ... which means the office hours pass more quickly!!!

Another great article. Taking breaks at work is so important, but sometimes so hard to do.

I'm a teacher and I just went to a seminar on "Teaching with the Brain in Mind." It is amazing how much simply moving or playing upbeat music can refocus adults as well as students. The whole seminar was based on Brain-based research and I'm sure it is available to hand to a stubborn employer. Unfortunately, some employers don't understand or don't care. Too bad we couldn't convince them to do a productivity study in the office. LOL
