  • Stand Up: Don't get lazy and slouch in that chair, move around the office or stand up at your desk as much as possible. The movement will keep you from slouching into a nap in that chair.
  • Eat a Snack: Come on, that's easy! Bring some snacks to work or have a little snack drawer ready for when you need something to chew on and give you some energy before your lunch break.
