Why not take a 5-minute brain break right now?Make your brain's downtime a priority. Start by stepping away from whatever you are doing. Then, let your mind wander for 5 minutes – without technology or any focused stimulation. Taking a few minutes to disengage throughout the day helps downregulate stress and recharge mental energy, allowing a boost in inspired, innovative thinking. Spending too much time focused on work, induces fatigue and distraction and reduces overall productivity.
Ways to Begin:
- Clear your mind
- Take a relaxing walk
- Turn off the radio during your commute
- Remind yourself to take breaks with a timer or time management app
