My supervisor at the Bureau of Legislative Research called it the “Green Fog.” It’s the numbness that drifts over your brain and prevents you from getting anything done. Recently, the Green Fog has been making me question everything I ever knew about compound subjects joined by “or.”
Striving to life a healthier lifestyle, I implemented three simple habits at the Bureau in order to feel like an operational human being throughout my eight-hour days of reading Arkansas law books.
My berry of choice is the strawberry, and I keep a cup of them in the refrigerator at work for when I need an extra pick-me-up. Like green tea, the antioxidants in berries help keep your memory sharp — now and as you age — according to Food Network.
Writing is typically a sedentary activity, and sitting for most of the day does not do us any favors in regards to keeping our mind clear. Walking for two minutes every hour has completely changed the way I feel at work. If I were to recommend only implementing one of these habits, this would be the one!
Let me know your tips and tricks!
