A snack, a walk around the office, or a coffee with colleagues will benefit your work!
In an employer’s mind, an employee who gets sidetracked by a walk around the office, a snack, or a conversation with coworkers looks at least uninvolved in their work. But that impression can be deceptive. One study suggests that micro-breaks help increase engagement and productivity. Even a five-minute rest relieves fatigue and stress that builds up throughout the day.
When is the best time to take a work break?
It is useful to take micro-breaks every two hours or after completing a big task to “reset” the brain and better immerse yourself in a new task.
How to relieve stress and fatigue?
We can recommend you of some simple tips to recharge your energy and vigor:
- A light exercise: a walk around the office, in the park or some simple physical exercises.
- A favorite drink or snack. It is important to not have a quick snack, but rather to switch off work and enjoy the taste.
- Interacting with colleagues. A short conversation will relieve the tension and create a friendly atmosphere.
- Headphones and pleasant music. The right playlist will improve the mood.
- Short shifts of attention, such as looking at the news feed, will help reset and look at the problems in a different way.
