Take a Wrapping Break to Wake Up Your Brain
Covering gifts in paper and tape can be mind-numbing… and that numb mind can make the whole process take longer. Stay sharp and finish faster with a little exercise, Frisch says.
Get up and move with Frisch's 5-minute wrapping break: Bodyweight squats, push ups (or elevated push ups), bodyweight lunges, and a core exercise of your choice (we like planks). Perform each exercise for 30 seconds. When you've finished all four exercises, rest for one minute, and repeat the moves again.
"It's not even about the exercise, necessarily," he says. "A little movement can enhance cognitive function, and wake you up."
