Mental Sorbet : 394/420

Here’s the deal: Taking frequent, swift breaks makes your focus – and your results – a whole lot better. Scientists think it’s because the brain’s built to detect and respond to change. It’s hard, we know, to give your mind a palate cleanser – we want to grind through breaks and lunch so we can get to the bottom of our inboxes. But you get less, not more, done when you do. Try a 50/10 split – 50 minutes working, then 10 minutes of mental sorbet. Every so often, we’ll add one here that’s filled us with awe or energy. Enjoy.
