Have you ever returned from a break, only to suddenly find the solution to that problem you'd been poring over for ages? You'll already be aware that a break can be really useful. But did you know about these other benefits too?
1. Better physical and emotional health
Your body was designed to move: constant sitting puts you at higher risk of conditions including diabetes, heart disease and depression.
2. Feeling more switched on
Breaks can prevent decision fatigue
3. Improved productivity and creativity
Briefly taking our minds off the task can renew and strengthen motivation
4. Improved learning
Taking a break helps consolidate memories and learning.
