You can't keep up 100% productivity all the time. Find out about the importance of taking breaks here.
- When you work from home, one of the most important things … you need to do for yourself is schedule breaks. … I try to take at least a 10-minute break every 50 minutes. … Because let me tell you something, … staring at a computer for four hours … is not going to help you get your work done any faster. … So keep yourself honest, … set an alarm on your phone every 50 minutes, … and when the alarm goes off, … get up and actually walk away from your desk. … Step outside, take a couple of deep breaths, … go for a quick walk, but take a break. … You can also use the app Time Out, … or the app Smart Break for Windows users, … and that will actually … lock your computer down for 60 minutes, … so that you will actually take a lunch break. … Now, I'm a big fan of prepping lunch … so that you can actually enjoy your full lunch break, … or get in a quick little workout. … Whatever it is, it's just really important … for your productivity to take breaks every 50 minutes. … If you do it, you'll get a lot more done. Trust me. …
