Next time you feel overwhelmed enough to take a break, don’t fall into one of your habitual procrastination behaviors: Take a brisk, twenty-minute walk or go sit outside for ten minutes.
Fresh air helps both psychologically and by boosting oxygen production to clear the cobwebs from our brains. Tell yourself you’re taking a break—not procrastinating (which you would have been doing, had you got sucked into your traditional game of Candy Crush or playing with your fidget spinner).
Don't believe it works? The Harvard Business Review conducted a study which concluded that people who take a nature break improve their concentration levels by 6%!
Besides, a brisk twenty-minute walk per day will give you your daily exercise. That's efficiency!
