5 important reasons why you need to take breaks
- Increased Productivity
A small diversion once an hour or so can actually help your brain perform better. Working for long periods without a breather can cause our brains to perceive the task as less important and we lose concentration.
- Personal development time
Short breaks are a great way to switch tasks and do something for your personal growth. This can make you more valuable to your workplace over time.
- Better retention rates
Breaking from focus mode helps our brains integrate the information working with and learning. This helps up to retain more information for later use.
- Better stress Management
Taking breaks helps you manage stress. Bonus points if you spend the time power napping. Studies have shown that taking a 20-minute nap in the afternoon actually provides more rest than sleeping an extra 20 minutes in the morning.
- Team Building
Taking Group breaks can help your team collaborates & bond while building stronger relationships and boosting morale. This helps teams problem-solve better
