The Answer for Work Productivity: Recess
I don’t know about you, but one of my favorite things about school was recess. Finally, a break in the day where you could talk to your friends and giggle about boys. It was a time when you could actually chase your crush around the playground. It was a time for 4-square, hopscotch, the monkey bars and fun. As you get older recess goes away, and all you are faced with is work. So what would make the workday go better? Recess of course.
According to a survey by KEEN, a footwear company, more than half of the adults surveyed said who work full-time said that a 10-minute recess during the day would make them happier, healthier and more productive.
So if you had a 10-minute “recess” in your work day would it make you happier?
Although, a great idea most people would probably work through recess like they work through lunch and their breaks.
So what do you think? Would you enjoy a recess in your workplace?
