We’ve all encountered them… long workdays. Sometimes they’re easy to power through, but other days, it can be a little difficult to stay focused. Next time, fight off feeling groggy and remember PAWS!
Protein- Make sure you include protein in your diet to keep your mind alert and body energized. One great protein option especially when you’re on the go is a protein bar. You can find a great selection of protein bars at your local Avenue C!
Action- If you have a desk job, take a quick stroll around the office or outside if the weather is nice to stretch your legs, relax your mind and get the creative juices flowing again. Even if you don’t have a desk job, staying active at work is a great way to stay focused through a long shift and make time fly by.
Water- Drinking water is essential to overall body health. Staying hydrated is key in keeping your mind focused and alert. Utilize your closest vending machine to stay hydrated. You can also keep a bottle of water at your desk, or check out the EcoStream unit in the breakroom and sip on some refreshing filtered water!
Snacks- Snacking a few times throughout a long shift not only keeps your metabolism going, it also prevents you from feeling drained.
Whether you consistently or rarely have long shifts, finding a way to stay focused and get the most out of your workday is important. We hope PAWS can provide a great solution and help you get through your next long shift!
