Weaning Off Caffeine

[fa icon="calendar'] March 24, 2017 / by Tiesa Johnson posted in #noma

[fa icon="comment"] 0 Comments

No more Caffeine Fiend
 
 
Caffeine isn’t only in the two to three cups of coffee that we drink in the morning to get us going. It’s in the things that we eat throughout the day. If the habit of having caffeine is becoming a bit too hard to break or starting to have a negative impact on your health, there are two methods that you can try. You can either go cold turkey or you can wean yourself from drinking caffeine. Understand that there are pros and cons to both methods of decreasing and eventually eliminating your caffeine intake.
 
Cold Turkey Method – Although caffeine is sold in everyday items, a caffeine addiction is just like any other addictions and ceasing intake altogether may have the same impact on your body just like illegal drugs can. According to the Caffeine Informer, the Cold Turkey method is the fastest way to detox the body of caffeine but it can also lead to withdrawal symptoms such as: headache, drowsiness, irritability, insomnia, and anxiety, to name a few. Stopping caffeine abruptly can also lead to a person’s decrease in productivity because their body is used to having caffeine to help stay focused.  
 
Weaning Method – This method allows you to take your time and gives your body to follow along with the transition that it is becoming subjected to. The Caffeine Informer suggests gradually reducing caffeine intake by 50mg less every couple of days. Your body will thank you for the pros to this method. It is less shocking to your body and the withdrawal symptoms are less severe. It can take a little longer to detox your body from the caffeine because you are still consuming the product on a daily basis.
 
 
When it comes to your health, it is always most important to consult with your primary care physician to understand what method may be best for you. Your primary care provider may also provide you will tips and tricks to weaning off of caffeine in a way that works just for you.

Eating Healthy to Avoid Winter Weight

[fa icon="calendar'] February 23, 2017 / by Tiesa Johnson posted in #noma, #lunch&learn

[fa icon="comment"] 0 Comments

Don’t be fooled by the sun shining and the warmer temperatures, according to the Punxsutawney Phil we have six more weeks of winter! When you stay inside, it forces you to become less active and eat foods to “warm” you up. Without the right and healthy food choices you may pack on a few extra unwanted pounds. If you’re at our NOMA location, take a ride on the elevator to the café for a nutritional and inexpensive meal. If you like to bring your meals to work with you, try considering the following options:

4 Great Team Building Activities around Washington, D.C.!

[fa icon="calendar'] July 29, 2016 / by Patricia Yaxuan Wang posted in #work, #dcworkspaces, #teamwork, #teambuilding

[fa icon="comment"] 0 Comments

Fun and motivational team building activities bring people together and help coworkers see each other in a different light. Through communication, problem solving, and conflict resolution, team-bonding activities improve office relations, motivate employees and promote their creativity. Here are 4 great team building activities you can find around Washington D.C.!

 

Escape Room 

 

Locked in a room with your team for 45 minutes to get out! Can you do it?

Escape Room Live DC has 2 locations right now.  On Alexandria location, there are 4 rooms available to choose for 6-12 players: The Wizard’s Apothecary (difficulty level: 5/10), Sherlock Homes (difficulty level: 7/10), Peo-Ranormal Activity (difficulty level: 7/10), and Moriarty’s Madness (difficulty level: 6/10).

 

At the D.C. location, there are three rooms to choose: Back to the 80’s (difficulty level: 8/10) for 8-12 players, I Was Framed (difficulty level: 6/10) for 6-8 players, and Double Crossed (difficulty level: 6/10) for 5-7 players. Bring your team and have great memories here!

 

cityHUNT

 A scavenger hunt in D.C.! Exploring the city and bonding with your team.

 

Under a customized (group size, budgets, etc) adventure, cityHUNT provides clues in well-known landmarks, parks and neighborhoods, and then send clues to you and your coworkers in cryptic ways. Members in your group will build deeper communication and relationships while finding clues and solving problems together.

 

Sportrock Climbing Centers

 

Tired of sitting in offices? Try rock climbing with your team!

Good exercise and team building activities indoors. You don’t have to be an expert rock climber to try rock climbing. Sportrock offers a Basic Skills class. The class will teach you the essential skills needed to climb at a Sportrock facility. You’ll learn to properly put on a harness, tie into the rope and belay (secure the rope) for a partner.

 

Pev's Paintball

 

A customized (age, fitness level, etc.) paintball experience is the excellent team building activity! Your team will work together to make strategies and plan, and then make a move.  Paintball is also an aerobic exercise that builds up your strength and relieves stress.

 

Bring your team and try this exciting team building experience outdoors!
