Stretch it Out

If leaving your cube for a walk is not an option, stretching at your desk can be the next best thing. According to the Lymphoma Research Foundation, simple static stretches and range of motion exercises can give you that much needed boost of energy to get you through the afternoon. Carry an elastic resistance band in your briefcase and perform a variety of shoulder, hip, and lower-back stretches, or simply get blood flowing by loosening up your range of motion.
