How the Right Kind of Breaks Make You More Money

I get it; it's hard to get away and take a break. With so much to do, we feel like we have to produce, produce, produce for an ever-growing consumerist society. But what if I told you that taking breaks as a leader is more important than you would originally have assumed? In fact, I would say it's actually mandatory for you.

Breaks are not just a pause from work but a powerful tool to boost leadership, attract customers, and increase profits.

Good news for you busy bodies - it's the quality of the break that matters more than the duration. #mindblown! You heard me right, it doesn't matter how long the break is; in fact, a five-minute break can sometimes be more powerful than a one-hour break, and it's all due to the quality.

Here is a quick list of some super effective types of breaks:

  1. Nature Breaks: Step outside for a quick walk to boost mood and creativity, reducing stress.

  2. Mindfulness Pause: Spend a moment meditating to lower stress and sharpen focus.

  3. Move Your Body: Stretch or exercise to release endorphins, improve mood, and enhance cognitive function.

  4. Bonus points if you can do a little jump roping or jumping jacks as that shakes the entire body

  5. Screen Break: Disconnect to reduce digital eye strain and reconnect with your surroundings.

  6. Hobby Time: Enjoy a hobby to shift focus from work stress and stimulate your brain.

  7. Nourish Yourself: Eat mindfully to fuel your body for optimal performance.

  8. Quality Breaks: Plan enriching activities for longer breaks to truly relax and recharge.
