- Try an on-screen workout class.
- Listen to an audiobook or podcast while finishing a chore, or read an article or book on your phone.

- Play a game. Research suggests that casual video gaming during a work break can reduce perceptions of stress. So yes, you can refresh and sharpen your brain with a little midday Words with Friends.
