Whether you need to refresh your body or your mind (or even both!), there’s a workout that can help you feel revitalised in a matter of minutes…
1. FOR A MENTAL BOOST:
‘The focus on breathing and mindfulness in yoga can help reduce stress and, in turn, increase energy and a general feeling of well-being,’ says personal trainer and fitness guru Dan Roberts. ‘It can be very energising from a psychological viewpoint.’ Om-azing!

2. THE OFFICE ENERGISER:
TRY A QUICK WALK
In a recent study, participants who, after sitting still for two hours, took a three-minute stroll every 30 minutes for the rest of a seven-hour day, had lower levels of fatigue than when they stayed sedentary all day. Tea break anyone?
3. THE BATTERY CHARGER:
TRY HITTING THE GYM
Mitochondria are tiny ‘powerhouses’ in cells that produce the lion’s share of the energy they need. Getting your sweat on can increase them. ‘For sustained elevation, regular aerobic training is best,’ says Dan.
