In our work-obsessed world, people dread being seen taking breaks. As a result, working (or pretending to work) 10 hours a day, or pulling all-nighters is seen as heroic. But the reality is, psychologists know taking frequent breaks is more conducive to productivity.
So plan your breaks with the frequency that best works for you, say, 20 minutes every hour, or every hour and a half. It’s the healthy thing to do, and hey, you’ll be a hero to us!
