Taking breaks on the job is not just good for your body and mind but can also make you more productive.
A recent study has proven that micro-breaks are a huge benefit to the body and also reboot the brain.
According to researchers at The University of Illinois, micro-breaks can have a ‘disproportionately powerful impact’ on workers, improving their ability to concentrate and even helping avoid injuries because workers are more alert.
Researchers say there is no consensus as to the length of the micro-break but workers should experiment with what works best for them.
Sooyeol Kim, a doctoral student from the University of Illinois said the only 2 rules are that micro-breaks should be short and voluntary.
