Day 26 Paleo Challenge and Taking a 10 Minute Energizer Break From Work / by Stephen Cooper

I've been trying to get better at handling my workload.  Lately I've been overwhelmed with emails, and sadly as some of you have noticed it's taken me longer to get back to you.

I apologise.

I'm trying to create better systems to handle this.

One thing that I am doing better, and I suggest you may want to try is this.

I normally work hard for 50 minutes, then take a 10 minute break.  I got this idea from one of my favorite books, "The Way We're Working Ins't Working" by Tony Schwartz.  I highly recommend it to everyone who needs to get more balance into their lives.

During my 10 min break, I do a few things to break up the work, and also "wake up" my body.

Here are my suggestions;

Do some crunches or hyperextensions on a stability ball.

Jump rope or jumping jacks for 100 repetitions.

Roll on a foam roller, or the Tiger Tail.

Try these and let me know how it goes for you.  Take the time, to be good to yourself.
