Make your next meeting a walk and talk. If you have an in-person or virtual meeting that doesn’t require you to be in front of the computer, make it a walking meeting (a “walk and talk”). It’s a great way to get up and get moving, and sneak in some steps for the day.
Drink a large cup of water. What’s the key to keeping your brain, muscles, metabolism and other body systems working at their best? Hydration! So take a break from what you’re doing and drink some water.
Reach out to an old friend, get your regular group together for a virtual happy hour, gather the family to celebrate a special occasion or plan any other meetup — virtually or in person when it’s safe. Connecting with friends and family strengthens your relationships and can help you feel happier. And it might be just the check in that someone else needs to boost their mood as well.
