The Mindfulness Guru: Millana Snow
Sitting all day is not ideal for your health — that we know for sure. While there are lots of evening hacks to undo a day of sitting at your desk, it’s even better if you can break up your day of sitting with some desk-side yoga or consistent movement. So what can you do to give yourself a much-needed break from staring at your computer screen? Holly Rilinger, the creator of Lifted (a combo of meditation and HIIT), a Nike master trainer, and a former professional basketball player, says a mini desk-workout using the four moves below will help you feel better and be more productive for the rest of the day. Feel free to use this as an excuse to wear yoga pants to the office.

Full disclosure: I love waking up early—but my intentions don’t always align with my circadian rhythm. Recently I’ve made a deliberate effort to wake up earlier so that I can train in the morning and basically crush the day before starting work.

Rock Clock is the app that I use when I know waking up is going to be a struggle.
