Give your Brain a Break


It’s such a cliche to say that we need rest from working to avoid stress, burnout and fatigue.


Like most things. We never listen.


Research from a study by Microsoft Human Labs shows the powerful effect on our brains when we don’t take a break.


The image speaks for itself.


Decision making is severely affected when we choose under pressure or in a heightened state of emotion. Think of crimes of passion, rushing emails, confusing facts, misremembering events.


All can be avoided with a simple 10 minute break every hour.


The intention behavior gap and a false sense of urgency will combine to stop you making this sensible decision.


You may even be too tired!!


Perhaps you need a break!
