Do you often take a break at work/ study?
I can’t work for 3 or 4 hours in a row. I usually take two rest breaks in addition to the lunch break. My job involves quite a lot of screen time so it is crucial to let my eyes rest for a while. Also a break is perfect opportunity to stretch my body after sitting at my cubicle for so long.
What do you often do during a break?
Well, as I mentioned I always need to stretch my tight muscles first, then grab some water or coffee before returning to my desk and resuming work. I also love to have a quick chat with other colleagues from time to time.
Do you like several short breaks or a long break?
Frequent, short breaks don’t sound like a good idea to me as it takes me quite a while to get back in the zone (concentrate) after staying away from I’d rather take a long break, maybe 15 to 30 minutes, which I find more productive and efficient.
Is it important to take a break?
Obviously, a sedentary lifestyle can be devastating to our health. These days, most people spend the majority of their working or studying time in front of a computer so physical inactivity is unavoidable. Breaks are thus crucial for people to rejuvenate and stay healthy, which in turn could boost their productivity drastically.
