This is seemingly a self-explanatory item but it’s not as simple as it suggests. For one to be more productive, taking breaks is essential. By taking breaks, it meant taking my mind off work and resting my mind.
Now that I’m working
at home, taking breaks meant the perfect time to leave my workspace and to start relaxing my mind. It may be eating in a different room, going outside to get a breath of fresh air, playing games or scrolling through your phone, watching a short video, or just
anything to put my mind off the work I’m currently doing.
Break time may take up 15 – 30 minutes depending on what works for you but a break that takes more than an hour is not considered a break anymore as it consumes a lot of downtimes
and eventually unproductivity. Maintaining a well-planned and scheduled break routine boosted my productivity and mindset by creating a habit that work must be done at a certain time and that breaks last for only a certain time.
