If you can't take a vacation, at least a 10-minute break
from your screen!
If you can, take a vacation: recharge, let loose, and revitalize your mind. Science says it's the equivalent hitting the reset button on your brain: it destroys stress and gives you a much-needed fresh perspective to create sweeping change.
If you can't head to a vacation spot today, don't worry - just take a break! A Cornell University study from 2009 shows that workers who followed automated reminders to take a break from their computer screens were 13% more accurate in their work after returning.
Researchers also suggest to meditate in a quiet space or even take a walk - preferably in the fresh air if possible. Not only will your eyeballs appreciate it, your mind will have a chance to recharge.
