Easy Ways Be More Productive at Work

September 18, 2014 5:03 pm

Even the most model of employees is susceptible to the 3 p.m. slump. But that doesn't necessarily mean productivity has to suffer. Check out these three tips for improving your workflow at the office.

1) Let your body dictate the day.
It's likely that your energy levels take a nosedive at certain times during the workday, while other times you feel lively and awake. Take mental note of these ebbs and flows in energy, and plan your day's tasks around them. Schedule routine tasks for when your energy dips, and plan tasks requiring more brain power during the hours when you're feeling more lively.

2) Don't multitask.
If you get everything done at once, you'll have more time to complete other tasks, right? Not really. It's impossible for your brain to devote equal attention to multiple tasks being performed simultaneously; you'll be more apt to make mistakes, which will cost you valuable minutes somewhere down the line.

3) Take a break.
You probably feel pressure to soldier on through your lunch break, but staying chained to your desk is actually counterproductive. Instead, aim to take five minute breaks every two hours. Walk around, stretch, and get outdoors, if you can. This will improve blood flow and help you feel more energized.

Summer Solstice Ending Community DRUM Circle with My BodYoga

September 18, 2014 2:01 pm

We are all about community at My BodYoga and a Drum Circle is the use of a rhythm-based event as a tool for unity. This is NOT a drum class. We will all learn to create our own rhythm and let go. A community drum circle in the United States is a fun, family friendly event, where people empower each other in the act of celebrating community and life through music, vibration and rhythm. People of all levels of musical expertise come together and share their rhythmical spirit with what ever drums and percussion they bring to the event. They don't have to be a drummer to participate. Everyone has something to offer the circle, and any one is welcome. We will have some drums, dancing ribbons and tamborines available. Bring your drums…

Dixie Bones BBQ: Smokey, Tender, Flavorful ‘Cue

September 17, 2014 4:08 pm

Lovers of old-fashioned barbecue smoked in hickory wood pits will appreciate the work that goes into producing the delicious meals at Dixie Bones BBQ. This Woodbridge eatery is a local favorite, and after one bite you'll likely understand why!

Try the traditional pulled pork, sample the moist beef brisket, or bite into a half rack of tender spare ribs. Top your meat with one of the house-made barbecue sauces, pair it with classic side dishes like tangy coleslaw, sweet baked beans, or creamy potato salad, and you've got a truly great meal. If you need to feed a crowd, you can order ahead and purchase meats and sides by the pound.

Visit the Dixie Bones website to learn more about this local eatery!
