Lunchtime stroll through the park
Pack a picnic to take with you to a nearby park for lunch.

Believe it or not, a simple walk to reflect on your day can be the easiest way to meditate.
Plugin to your favorite tunes
Rainy day? Plugin to your favorite Bluetooth headphones, the Helix Cuff, and jam out in the comfort of your own office by blasting some sunny day pick-me-ups. Stylishly subtle, the Helix Cuff is an office goer’s best friend.
