Breaks at work. Do they help?
One of my expectations with work is that I show up to work on time, leave on time, and do not do any work activities during lunch. Many times, that is when I am writing these blog posts, but some times I just take a break and watch one or two YouTube videos.
To support this decision and answer the question asked is the infographic below.
These are my favorite three break room hacks from the infographic:
- 59% say breaks improve workplace happiness and 37% say it improves health (agreed!)
- Breaks increase concentration, alertness, and work speed and decrease stress, soreness, and eye strain.
- To increase your break impact, buy healthy foods, stretch, and get water. I compensate this with push-ups and a home standing desk.
How do you make sure you are being effective at work?
