Work can be dull if not mundane on certain days. But that doesn't mean we have to remain in our seats all the time!

If you have a fair amount of space at work, jumping jacks could be a fun thing to do in between work. According to entrepreneur Jonathan Fields, and NASA, jumping jacks gets your heart pumping.

It sounds counter-intuitive. You have to spend time exercising. But, research has shown that exercise boosts cognitive function, creativity, problem solving and productivity. In fact a NASA study showed employees who exercised daily worked at 100% efficiency after 7 hours, while those who didn't saw a 50% drop, meaning it took them twice as long to accomplish the same thing. So, exercise, in effect, creates time.

This is particularly good for those who haven't the time for exercise. If you haven't a clue what jumping jacks are, here's a video to guide you:
