    Do you know why taking breaks make your brain work?

    Posted on June 4, 2021

    Downtime from work is crucial for everyone. Even your dream job can also become a nightmare if you do not take out for yourself and spend time with loved ones. Eventually, your productivity will take a major hit. It is said that the top ten per cent of efficient workers tend to take a 17-minute break for every 52 minutes spent working.

    Even a few minutes of time off can cause a significant difference. Have you ever wasted six hours on something one day, only to have the same task take two hours the other day?

    Let’s have a look at how having a steady routine of taking a short break is helpful for us.

    Daily movement is important.

    It has been a while we have been hearing that spending most of the time seating at a desk is hazardous. You cannot be productive if you are unfit. Also, physical activity helps in improving your mental health and reduce the risk of falling sick, which will increase your work productivity. It helps you maintain brain cells as you grow older. Many health-focused coworking spaces in Gurgaon or Delhi have an open space where people can have a short walk post-lunch or move while attending a call.

    Consider your needs.

    Taking a walk to get a drink, go to the restroom or small chit chat with a co-worker makes all the difference. For example, even a slight reduction in total body water content can harm our cognitive capacity and mood.’ Dehydration reduces your functionality and leaves you feeling exhausted, cranky, and less productive.

    Happiness increases productivity.

    If you are a manager or an entrepreneur, encouraging your employees to do something they appreciate during the workday, like playing a game, reading a book, or going outside, will not only make them happy but efficient as well. In that case, coworking spaces in Gurgaon help as they organize activities more often that helps you, employees, to refresh or socialize with other professionals.

    Take a break while you are processing information!

    Many types of research on cognitive psychology show that humans need to process data. We do not just react to stimulation; we collect it, understand it, and then practice it. And sometimes, your mind needs to do something else while it is processing something in the backdrop.

    Have you ever been struggling with a query only to discover you have the answer when you wake up? It is not only that you were exhausted the previous day and you are more attentive now. Your brain has been operating on the problem subconsciously.
