We're in the homestretch to the weekend. Time to get on up and stretch it on out, so you have some energy to make it through the rest of the day. 

Your mission, should you accept it: Pick one of these 12 office exercises and do it right now. There are even animations that show you how to do them properly and ratings for how humiliating it will be if a colleague walks by and sees you doing "The Hulk."

While you're at it, why not download and print the poster of all 12 office exercises and hang it in your office to remind you to move around during the workday. Grab it at http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-srv/special/health/workout-at-work/images/office-exercise-poster.pdf

Promoting employee well-being and organizational performance
Introduction
The American Psychological Association’s Center for Organizational Excellence works to enhance the functioning of individuals, groups, organizations and communities through the application of psychology to a broad range of workplace issues.

The Center houses APA’s Psychologically Healthy Workplace Program (PHWP), a public education initiative designed to engage the employer community, raise public awareness about the value psychology brings to the workplace and promote programs and policies that enhance employee well-being and organizational performance.
The PHWP includes APA’s Psychologically Healthy Workplace Awards, support of local programs currently implemented by 56 state, provincial and territorial psychological associations, and a variety of resources for employers and the psychologists who work with them.

Internally, the Center bridges APA’s business units and provides an overarching strategy for promoting the health and well-being of the association’s own workforce, thereby supporting APA’s functioning and effectiveness.
