Food Coma. Nap-time. Funk. It usually happens around 2 o’clock. Everything you’ve done thus far has hit you like a ton of bricks. Suddenly, you’re spent. What do you do?
Bring Back the Ice Bucket Challenge for a Great Cause: An icy guarantee to wake up your senses! However, if your area is in a drought, maybe do it over some plants or a dry patch.
Two Minute Dance Break: Put your favorite song on and wriggle. It gets you up and going, is ridiculous enough to elicit some giggles, and is wholesome fun. Plus, we even have a cool playlist (of YOR Health Leader, Hector Flores).
Air Horn + Timer: Watch out, though! This has a high chance of leading to hearing issues.

Designed to stimulate positivity and boost energy levels.
Easy favorite amongst us in the office: simultaneously soothing and icy. Brr. Ice queen.
