Wintertime lends to becoming one with the couch, blanketed in cozy comforters. Cold Chicago mornings beg even the metro area’s highly productive professionals, here at The Montrose, to go into hibernation inside our Chicago apartments. But, of course, that just won’t do. Here are a few tips that can be useful throughout the year, and especially in winter, to help you maintain your feeling of high efficiency.
1. STAY ACTIVE
Sitting all day at your desk can be a drag on your energy level. Even the briefest routine of frequently taking a few moments throughout the day for a bit of stretching, bending, walking around, and taking deep breaths can reduce stress and increase mental clarity. And, it can infuse energy into your body and mind, and a greater sense of dynamics into your work.
2. KEEP HYDRATED
When you’re in the zone, it’s easy to forget to drink enough water. Lack of proper hydration brings on sluggishness, can cause headaches, and it’s unhealthy for the body’s organs. Keep a water bottle on your desk, or start taking a few minutes every hour or so to get up from your chair, walk around, and drink some water.
3. GO OUTSIDE
With frigid winds blasting outside the soothing, beautiful, warm interiors of The Montrose, any advice to get outside may seem grossly counterintuitive. But, Chicago does have a number of milder and less windy days throughout the winter season. Seize these opportunities to get outside at least briefly, for the sake of your vitamin D levels, and to refresh your mind.
