“Are you tired, rundown, and listless? Do you pop out at parties? Are you unpoopular? ”   These are the questions asked by Lucy in the famous I Love Lucy episode entitled “Vitameatavegimin”.

No, this isn’t a plug for Vitameatavegimin but I will give you a few suggestions of how to fit in a few rest breaks at work!

Studies have show that taking a break from your work for a few short moments actually increases productivity. For more information, check out these articles from:

As promised, here are three things to do on your short break that will refresh you:

Find something that makes you laugh.

Check out funny memes on Facebook; or view a short video on Youtube of puppies, kittens, or children doing adorable things;

Find something to inspire you:

Search the internet for inspiring stories; look at the images that you have stored on your phone; or watch an inspiring video on YouTube;

Find something that centers you:

Sit quietly and hold a quote or affirmation in your mind; take several deep breaths and relax on the exhale; or say a prayer or send good thoughts to people you care about.

You can do this!

Your Friend and Pep Pal,

Lauren
