How many breaks you (should) take in an 8 hour work day?
How many breaks you take daily? Do you prefer one longer or many short pauses? ^_^
Several cigarette and coffee breaks! but often speaking of work, does that count?
@fares_aktouf I am wondering the same :DDD
@fares_aktouf To be honest I wouldn't count it XD But I guess it wouldn't be fair towards people who are not drinking coffee or smoking cigarettes.. :))
@maria_brm ah :D it can't be easy for them
@fares_aktouf Indeed :D It is tricky especially in an office where people usually think they need ''an excuse'' for a break.. :D
According to research, our metabolism starts slowing down after 30 minutes of sitting, and after 2 hours, it goes down by 90 percent. So just getting up for 5 minutes every 2 hours will get things going again. And I try following this, and it has helped me in increasing my productivity as well.
@nabeel_amir Indeed, I am trying to do the same, especially when I feel that I have slowed down... I had so interesting first working experience after my studies, during one internship: I had so a cool boss - she really took care of us, reminding us about staying hydrated, eating healthy, and taking breaks. She used to force us to jump 10-ishy min on a trampoline in a garden each 2h! :DD Even tho we all thought firstly she was crazy, soon all of it made sense! We stayed energized, we worked better, we kept a childish funny spirit, and - this activity indeed connected the team in a very nice friendly way! ^__^
