You could WIN summer gear from Keen and a Five-day adventure get-away for two to Havasu Falls, a remote oasis nestled in an offshoot of the Grand Canyon.

Join the Recess Revolution and get outside for a mid-day breather to help keep you focused for the rest of the day. Increase productivity and improve your health one day at a time with 10 minute afternoon breaks. Check out these adventures just outside your door.

STRETCH IT OUT
Substitute a full yoga class with a few stretches during lunch. Bring your mat to work and find an open space outside to practice. The Warrior II and Downward Dog poses will increase blood flow, leaving you relaxed and rejuvenated for the rest of the day. 

HIT THE PARK
Bring your Frisbee to work and discuss your mid-day meeting outside. Grab a co-worker and head to the park for a game of pickup. Get some sun and a little exercise while conducting business.     

EAT LOCAL
Walk to your local farmer’s market for an afternoon break. Peruse the fresh produce and find a healthy snack. Not only will you find naturally-grown food, and catch some fresh air, you’ll also be supporting your community.   

TAKE BACK RECESS
Take the ultimate break from the daily grind with a FIVE-DAY ADVENTURE GETAWAY for two to Havasu Falls. Spend your days trekking through narrow side canyons to arrive at the base of this magnificent 100-foot waterfall, nestled in an offshoot of the Grand Canyon. Plus, have a chance to WIN SUMMER GEAR FROM KEEN. Come back rejuvenated and ready to handle whatever comes your way.
