Working From Home – No #1 Tip: Regular Microbreaks

Many of us have now started our new working from home life and with remote working comes a new set of challenges around employee health and safety.

Today’s No #1 Tip is to take regular Microbreaks.

A microbreak is a break that lasts anywhere from 30 seconds to 5 minutes, and is meant to be taken frequently – as often as every 10 minutes. Evidence suggests microbreaks actually reduce muscle fatigue by as much as 20-50 percent in an eight-hour day. Frequent breaks are better than less frequent longer breaks, so a 5-10 minute break after 50-60 minutes is better than a 20 minute break every 3 hours.

Set up automated daily reminders to ensure you take your microbreaks throughout the day.
