- Half a cup of mango juice

- Two large green apples, cored and chopped
- Half a cup frozen mango chunks
- Two cups red leaf or romaine lettuce
- 1/4 cup of avocado
- 2/3 cup fresh parsley
- 1/3 cup fresh cilantro (as this is quite strong, you might want to use less if you’re not a fan)

- Two small pieces peeled fresh turmeric
- Five or six large ice cubes
What to do
Add the coconut water and mango juice to a blender first, then add the remaining ingredients. Blend everything on a high-speed setting until smooth. It can be a little tart, so you can add sweetener to taste. The leftovers will keep well in the fridge (in an airtight container) for up to 24 hours.

Yoga moves you can do at work without attracting attention
Sitting at a desk all day long really isn’t good for us. If you’re starting to feel achy and fidgety, but it’s hours until you can go home and more days before you can get a massage, try some of these desk-based yoga moves to release that tension until home time.
Sit up, keeping your spine straight. Take a deep breath and reach as far as you can up toward the ceiling with your arms open wide. Breathe out and look behind you as you bend slightly from your upper back and chest. Hold this pose for a few seconds, let your arms fall back to your sides, then repeat a few times.
Sit in a chair, making sure your spine is nice and straight. Breathe in, then as you breathe out, twist to one side from the bottom of your spine while holding onto your arms rest. Hold the pose as you breathe in a few more seconds, then stretch the other side.
Desk Shoulder Opener
Stand a few feet from your desk, and drop your head between your arms to achieve a good shoulder stretch. This balances out the hunching you get when you’re sitting over a desk all day and helps get your shoulders back into proper alignment.
