Taking five-minute breaks–whether you sit at a desk, do heavy construction work, or anything in between–can have several benefits. Below are examples of some activities you can do in five minutes or less for rest breaks.

  • Take several short breaks throughout the day. Make sure they include some movement.
  • Take a short walk away from your workstation.
  • Stand up and stretch or walk in place at your desk without looking at your computer monitor.
  • Get out of your chair whenever you take phone calls at your desk.
  • Change positions at your workstation.
  • Have a drink of water or a light snack.
