Yes, you read that correctly. We’d love for you to read this blog post, but first… TAKE A BREAK!
Whether you spend a few minutes walking around your neighborhood or head to your kitchen to make a quick snack, studies have shown that giving your brain short breaks can greatly increase your productivity during the work day.
With increased screen time in the current environment, it’s even more important that you give yourself some time away from your devices in order to remain productive and healthy. A few of the key benefits of taking breaks include:
- Making better decisions and thinking more clearly
- Sparking more creative ideas and new solutions
- Staying focused over long periods of time
- Retaining information more easily
- Re-focusing on the most important tasks
People who are working from home tend to look at their work day as less involved now and don’t think it’s as important to take clearly defined breaks, but there is no research supporting this. In fact, experts claim that it may be even more important for people to take breaks when working from home because productivity outside the office is already lowered by a certain degree.
