Incorporate Exercises Into Your Breaks


Today is day 6 of the Work (Out) From Home challenge, powered by Humana!  

Your breaks might be few and far between, but if you have a few minutes to spare, use them wisely. Instead of scrolling through social media on your phone or eating a candy bar, try one of these mini-exercises:
  • Calf raises
  • Hold a plank on your elbows or hands
  • Jog in place
  • Lunges or squats
  • Standing stretches
Sometimes during a stressful day of work, a short exercise is the perfect tension-reliever. If you can’t incorporate these into your shift, try doing them during television commercial breaks at home.

How did the plank challenge go this weekend? Let us know here. Better yet show us! Post a video in our private Facebook group, or on Twitter, or Instagram and tag us with #healthynurse.
