What are you doing during your breaks and at lunch? Intended as times to refresh and rest, the benefits are lost if these times are devoted to exchanges about the fears of the world or complaints about PITAs (Pain In The Assets) people. Taking time to play will actually increase creativity and productivity. Put some fun in your workplace…
- Plan a lunch-hour party.
- Read a good book.
- Take a power nap.
- Plug in the ipod and listen to your favorite music while taking a walk.
- Play Pictionary, charades, or name that tune.
