Your Brain NEEDS Breaks

"In today’s world of remote and hybrid work, it’s not sufficient to only encourage self-care. We need to innovate and leverage technology to help employees operationalize much-needed breaks into their daily routines."


Three main takeaways from this research:


1 - Rests between (virtual) meetings allow the brain to "reset", reducing a cumulative build up of stress across meetings


2 - Back-to-back meetings can reduce your ability to focus and engage


3 - Transitioning between meetings can be a source of high stress


Some recommended strategies:


⌚ Schedule 10 minute breaks between meetings

👣 Stand or walk for >2 minutes between meetings

🤳 Dial in to some meetings while walking


Stay well, get active!
