How often do you take breaks when working?

Mia A.
Almost never. I work in short bursts, usually because of bursts of inspiration. I work with either 100% focus or barely any at all if I don’t feel motivated.

Well since I go in school 🏫 I work for 1 hour and then take like a lunch 🥙 break and then go outside. After I just go back to class and finish my papers 📝 after that I fill in. Then another outside break.

it sorta depends on how long im gonna be working for. if it’s a longer project, like a few hours, then every 30-40 min or so. I’ll take that as a short break and then a longer break every hour. if it’s a a smaller project under 1 hour, I usually just have a 20 minute timer on and when that goes off, I go grab some fruit or draw something for 10 minutes, then come back to the work. sometimes, if it’s waaaaay shorter than that, you can just do it in one go! hope this helps, have a nice day x

I am sure that many have heard the terms, devourers and nibblers. Devourers tend to do work in one whole period of time, while nibblers take small breaks. I tend to lose focus so I need to take a relaxing five minutes to reflect on myself.

I have the problem that my breaks are too long and not enough. I’m trying to have many short breaks. Maybe 5-10 minutes every hour or so

After every 50 min of deep focus and deep work I take 10 min break for drinking, stretchinh, praying that give me more power

Pretty often. Whenever I am stuck on something or when I don’t want to do anything, I usually just scroll through my phone for a bit or lie on my bed until I need to go back to the task

Depending on what kind of work I am doing I'm ADHD aswell so I've always got plenty of energy yeh but when I have a job as I'm a horticulturalist trade n would usually take at least 3-4 breaks for 15-30mins so that's my.suggestion

It depends on how much time I work
If I work continuously for 1 hour I take a 20 minute break it gives me enough time to look out for other things to do or new assignments etc
It should always be 30 to 35%of your working time
