4 Tips to Take Better Breaks at Work

The break is the desert oasis of the workday. Jordan Rosenfeld provides four tips at Mental Floss to make the best of your time out of the sand.

First, take a break in the mid-morning, before lunch. This is because you have the most energy in the morning, and when you take an earlier break, you better preserve more of that valuable energy to be used in the afternoon.
