Want to get more done? Take more breaks! – A Life of Productivity

Want to get more done? Take more breaks! – A Life of Productivity:

Take breaks frequently:

a recent study in the journal Cognition found that taking breaks significantly improved participants’ focus and productivity, and allowed participants to focus on a task for longer periods of time.

 

More benefits:

  1. Breaks let you step back from your work, and see it from a higher 10,000 foot perspective.
  2. Breaks help you rev your brain down, and slow down. This helps you reflect and do better work.
  3. Breaks give you better ideas
  4. Breaks give you time to reflect on your work, which adds meaning to what you do.
  5. Breaks are preventative. Taking breaks when you are already feeling tired or fatigued is too late. Taking a break at the right time prevents you from feeling tired
