  • Tips For Starting Your Work Day

    One of my favorite lines in the movies comes from Ocean's 11. Matt Damon is talking to Brad Pitt about how he is scared of the intimidating Andy Garcia. Damon looks at Pitt and asks him "Are you suicidal?" Pitt responds with "Only in the mornings."

    Starting your morning at work can be a bit of a drag on some days. You're tired, hungry, and in need of another cup of coffee. Here are some tips for starting your day at work, that don't involve five cups of coffee or sleeping at the desk:

    1. If you work on a floor higher than the second floor, take the stairs instead of the elevator. Sure it might be difficult but it will wake you up and is great exercise for your legs.

    2. For those coffee drinkers out there, how about asking your local barista to put a shot of espresso in your coffee (I did this this morning and it’s wonderful what that little something extra can do).

    3. When you first get into the office don’t immediately launch into a frenzy thinking about all the things you have to get done that day. Start the day by eating a little breakfast, checking the latest on Google news or just checking out that e-mail you got with all those pictures of puppies sleeping.

    4. Bring small snacks with you and keep them in your desk drawer, if you’re able to, and snack throughout the day. Small meals every few hours can help give you more energy.
