When I was still working, I had the habit of standing up every hour and a half. I would go to my friends on the same floor to chat for a while. I feel that when I do that, I get to circulate blood to different parts of my body, which in turn, helps me to concentrate more. During lunch time, I would make it a point to leave the office and go outside for lunch or for coffee (if i’m on a tight budget). The fresh air helps me a lot in staying relaxed.
