Free time at work?

Everybody works in an unexpected way, so the best utilization of your spare time truly relies upon you, your working style, and what's on your schedule. However, it's helpful to have a rundown like this keeping in mind the end goal to rapidly figure out how to put that minimal extra time to work right away, without any thought.

Exercise

Never have time to work out? 10 minutes is sufficient to get off a few push ups and crunches, do a few stretches or walk up and down the stairs. Do that 2-3 times each day, and you are on your way to a fit new you
