If you want to be productive – take a break!


There is an old saying, that “All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy”. In fact it doesn’t just make Jack ( or Jill ) dull, it makes them less productive. A recent study by the time-tracking software company DeskTime found that the most productive people don’t try to work flat out for 8 hours, but work for 52 minutes, then break for 17 minutes.

In this article from DeskTime, Julia Gifford explains the research and science behind the findings. The key message is that making time for regular breaks helps you to get more done.
