Researches have shown that our mind gets bogged down by continuous work and slows down the creative flow. Regular breaks – 30 min or a vacation can have a huge impact on our work productivity and quality of life.
Even machines get tired after continuously working for hours and days, we are just humans. In the corporate world the competition is so high and the managers and entrepreneurs and even the general employees have to put their brains to grind for hours. This robs your brain of its vital resources and slows down your productivity. Today, more and more employees are complaining of burnouts and breakdowns. These things happen because they often do not get time to recharge themselves after long hours of work. An agitated mind cannot work efficiently, no matter how much you try to engage yourself in your work.
People in managerial position have to put even more hours into their work- for meetings, endless discussions, traveling and many more. Entrepreneurs have to do so much work and take charge of so many work responsibilities. This can have adverse effects not just on their health and work performance, but also on the company’s performance. The employees are the most important assets of a company and they need to be in top shape to keep the company going. It is important that employees take breaks from time to time to get recharged again. The breaks can be about 15 minutes or a week vacation. The important thing is the employees need to get away from work pressure now and then.
The researches have also shown that when you move away from hand-on-task that you are unable to complete, take a break and then come back to it later, you will see it in a different manner. This is how your new approach changes everything. Your mind now relaxed and recharged and can think even more efficiently and complete the task at hand.
Another way of restoring focus of employees is allowing them flexible working schedules. Due to so much work pressure employees are unable to spend quality time with families and this might often become a reason for stress and unhappiness. Flexible working allows the employees to work remotely for a few weeks or months depending on the policy of the company and this can help them get their focus back. Working from home for a few days or weeks can create a work-life balance and help employees become even more productive.
