Want to get more done? (Um, yes please!) According to science, improving your productivity could be as simple and enjoyable as taking more breaks. One study found that a social networking company’s most productive employees took a 17-minute break after every 52 minutes of work. Other research shows that frequent breaks boost creativity and focus. In some schools, brain breaks are catching on as a way to increase kids’ productivity.
The takeaway: Build breaks into your day. Your to-do list will thank you, and you’ll have more time for getting healthy!
