Spotty internet coverage at work is the WORST. But don't let temperamental wifi slow you down. A little bit of time offline allows you to take a break from your daily grind, catch some fresh air, or bond with colleagues! Trust us, there are plenty of tasks you can tackle even when the office is #unplugged.

1. Grab treats for the team.

When everyone's cranky about the internet (or lack thereof), run out and snag a few treats for your office. Donuts, cupcakes or cookies are sure to make even the grumpiest colleague smile.

2. Clean your laptop and keyboard.

Let's be honest. Your desk, computer and keyboard are basically a breeding ground for germs. Take a few minutes to dust and wipe down your workspace--especially with the winter months and flu season approaching!

3. Take a coffee break.

Use those few minutes without internet to grab your daily caffeine fix. By the time you've made it back to your desk, you'll have a coffee in hand and (hopefully) a wifi connection restored.

4. Play with the neighboring startup's pooch.

Take a trip down the hall to a neighboring office. There's always that one person in the building who dubs everyday "Bring Your Dog To Work Day."

5. Stop and breathe.

Take a few moments to meditate. A clear, focused mind is the greatest way to power through a long workday. Team meditation, anyone?
