Here are a few yoga bytes you might like to try at the office if your situation permits:

> Practice on your coffee break instead of drinking coffee. (Yoga is far more energizing, once you break that caffeine addiction!) Sit with your fingers wide apart on top of your knees. Inhale deeply. Open your mouth wide and stick out your tongue. Look up and exhale strongly. Repeat the process a few times (not in front of your boss!). This releases emotions, tensions in the face, and self-consciousness. It also helps to break a depression cycle.

Shavasana, also known as the corpse pose (shava means "corpse"), is perhaps the most important of all the yoga asanas and involves total relaxation while lying, "corpse-like," on the ground. Shavasana is a surprisingly challenging pose. It isn't easy to lie still!

> Practice right before your lunch hour.

While sitting, as you take a long inhale, stretch one leg straight out in front of you and hold it up parallel to the floor. Pull your toes back toward your head. Hold for three counts. Lower your leg as you slowly exhale. Do each leg a few times. This improves your hip joints and strengthens your legs so your knees won't be as stiff when you stand.

> At the end of a long work day, pause for a moment to get centered and refocus before you head home. Stand up and stretch your arms up over your head. Look up. Bend forward and touch the ground. Bend your knees if you need to. You have just connected the sun to the earth. After an accomplishment like that, you're ready to head home.

Ouch!

Eyestrain can result from staring at a computer all day. Try a yoga fix: Keeping your head still, look up as far as you can, focus on something, and count to three. Look down, focus, and count to three. Repeat six or seven times, focusing in different directions, then close your eyes and rest. When you open your eyes, they'll feel remarkably refreshed.
