The Importance of taking breaks in your work day

Sep 14, 2022

Do you ever get to the end of your day and think “why am I so tired”? Or you can feel like you’ve been in one spot for too long?

I just recently got a puppy which has given me a newfound responsibility. I am ensuring my needs are met not only throughout the workday but also his. I genuinely feel like this was the reminder and refresh I needed. Has it been more work? Yes, but it has also reminded me to get fresh air, switch up my working location even if it is just to the kitchen table or sitting in my yard, drink more water, enjoy a snack, and take a walk on my lunch break instead of analyzing a task or email that will still be there when I return.

Taking breaks and taking care of your needs will not only benefit the way you show up for clients, team members, and others around you but will help give you a fresh outlook on each task or project you are starting, finishing, or reviewing. So instead of a puppy being your reminder… set a few alarms or calendar invites for yourself to go outside, dance, hydrate, call a friend, journal, and have a snack, so you make it through your workday with newfound energy and a clear mind.
