The Non-Smokers Fag Break
Building “Cigarette” breaks back into your work day is healthy!
Of course we don’t recommend the nicotine element, but there are 3 key reasons why a 5 minute break outside gives you a physical re-boot improving focus, concentration, memory and energy levels.
Moving your geographical location has a stimulating effect on the brain and triggers greater creative thinking- it helps us to see problems from a different point of view- literally!
Light and Air
We may be lucky enough to have secured a window seat in the office with better ventilation and more natural light than our colleagues, but this is still limited or filtered. A trip to the real outdoors delivers exposure to UV light triggering the production of Vitamin D, increased oxygen to banish lethargy and boost brain function and a change in temperature which nudges all our internal organs into action to re-balance our bodies’ thermostat.
Leaving the desk to make this great expedition outdoors stretches out stiff limbs, uses different muscles and if you take the stairs adds a cardio-vascular work out to the trip, especially on the return journey.
