Taking breaks can improve both your productivity and creativity. In fact, not taking them can make you less productive. As a matter of fact, one of the chief causes of stress and anxiety, that most individuals in today’s world suffer from, are related to their long and demanding work hours, leaving hardly any time for them to take a break. What most individuals fail to realize is that such stress inducing routines, involving all work and no play, can have serious implications on not only their physical and mental health but also on their productivity and overall lifestyle. Stress, fatigue and depression take a toll on your physical and emotional resources and reduce cognitive functionality.

BENEFITS OF TAKING A BREAK:

- Reduced stress level.

- Enhanced focus and concentration.

- Improve memory.

Therefore, it is essential to break out of your daily routine, every once in a while, to take a breather and replenish your draining cognitive resources.

  • Discover new music.
  • Leave room from flexibility.
  • Take yoga breaks.
  • Go for a walk every morning.
  • Relaxation techniques like meditation and deep breathing always help.

They can undoubtedly go a long way in helping you relax and recuperate. Therefore, do something new, mix up your routine, reshuffle your priorities and take out time to focus on yourself for your own mental and physical benefit!
