Brain-Based Importance of Taking BREAKS at Work
How to Increase Your Motivation, Productivity, Performance, Happiness @ Work by Taking MORE Breaks

People often tell me that the way they conceptualize their day is like 'a marathon' and as though they are 'machines' that plow through the workday, taking almost no breaks, often skipping lunch, attempting to 'be always on' from beginning to end...except, this isn't just a recipe for psychological & physiological disaster, it isn't how the brain is designed to work, at all: for knowledge workers, this is also a recipe for cognitive & intellectual failures.

 


Today, we talk about the neuro-cognitive & psychological benefits of take MORE (not less) breaks at work, and the science behind how this increases performance, productivity, motivation, satisfaction & output!
