During office times, especially in corporate jobs, people experience a lot of stress and tiredness the whole day. We spent 40+ hours/week sitting at a single place, glued to our desks which create lots of mess in our work and lifestyle.

3) The Stimulating Breath
This is an advanced and modified version of Yoga Breathing exercise in which you sit straight on your seat and breathe in & out at a fast pace. Doing 20-30 seconds of stimulating breathing revitalize your body with more oxygen and calm the senses.

We became what we eat. So eating healthy and nutritious snacks full of protein, fibre and good fats at the workplace boost your health & immunity rather than eating junk snacks which make you feel sloppy & sluggish.

Laughter & Smiles make the office environment light & stress-free. It is good to share some laughs with your colleagues while working as it helps in strengthening a healthy bond between you & your colleagues.
