The other day I wanted to make a cup of tea with milk. I walked to the kitchen and realized that I was out of milk and quickly decided that I would go back to my computer and continue working.
Then I thought about all of the people in traditional jobs that were taking 15-20 minute breaks twice a day. Part of the perks of being on your own is that you can do what you want. But how many of us don’t take advantage of any a lifestyle where you make the rules?
So, I got up from my computer, put on my lipstick and left home to spend a little time in a near-by French Pastry shop, Financier Patisserie, for a hot cup of tea and a little conversation.
According to Meg Selig at Psychology Today…
Breaks increase productivity and creativity.
Taking a break is good for the mind and soul. Now, if only I’d remembered to stop by the market and pick up milk!
