Proper breaks can actually *improve* your productivity!
Taking good breaks is important for your daily productivity. Breaks reduce fatigue, alleviate boredom, and can restore attention.
😮 Using technology during our breaks may backfire and make us more susceptible to boredom and want more breaks, more often. And that defeats the whole purpose.
Restorative breaks can improve attention and refresh our focus.
Quality break ideas based on research include:
- Nature exposure
- Doodle and daydream
- Eye exercises – 20/20/20 (Every 20 min, focus 20 ft away, for 20-seconds)
- Laughter 😄
- Brief exercise
