Have a quick scan of the items on your office desk. Other than your computer, phone, and maybe some stationery, what else are you surrounded by?
Maybe a framed picture showing your family, friends, or favourite holiday destination? A desk plant that you’ve named, take care of, and never forget to water? Or perhaps a funny figurine, motivating poster, or stress ball?
However, you choose to enhance your desk space, it’s your way of turning it into your own happy place.

The book includes colourful, fun, and engaging illustrations that guide you through a five-minute movement practice designed to relieve stress, increase focus, and ease the aches and pains of modern office life.
With many of us spending roughly 10,000 days over a lifetime at work, much of that time spent sitting down, it’s a great idea to surround ourselves with things that make us happy and encourage us to move.
It’s often said that movement is medicine, and Mondays Moves is a great reminder to do more of it.
Mondays Moves by Ami Gosalia is published by Roundtree Press, $15.95, (mondays.com)
