For the other 30 minutes of your break, take a walk. Put UVA and UVB sunblock on your face and the backs of your hands before you go. A little sun on your arms and legs helps generate vitamin D. While you're walking, make a mental list of three to five things that you can purchase over the weekend that can help you achieve your goals for inner and outer beauty. Some suggestions:
- Water purifier, not only for drinking water but also for your shower (chlorine in shower and bath water can dry out your hair and skin).
- Decent shoes. High heels are the most destructive piece of clothing you can own. Find shoes that have a big toe box and heels that are less than 2 inches. And make sure you have comfortable sneakers by trying on at least five pairs before choosing.
- Home kit to test for radon in the house and new air filters to make sure you're breathing easy. Or, instead of walking: If time (and the environment) allows and your body needs it, take a power nap of no more than 30 minutes. It's the ultimate biological battery recharger.
