Importance of taking breaks to be more productive
Have you ever been so busy working that you cannot even rest over the weekends? With this, I do not mean that you are sticked to your desk 24/7, but even when you are at home, watching a game or going out with your friends, your mind keep on thinking on those unsolved issues at your job, this is a common practice, but it is not healthy, as taking breaks can help you being more productive that being more hours at your office.
“Entrepreneurs know the importance of being present at their companies, but it is not healthy to obsess over it, resting is as important as knowing everything that goes around on the enterprise, it is only by taking breaks that our mind can be clear enough to think better on solving problems and thinking of new ideas to grow up business”, said Salomon Juan Marcos Villarreal, president of Grupo Denim.
Having time for yourself might sound as a luxury, or as something that can get us away from being present during important times in our company, but keep in mind that a conscious brain have limited capability to solve situations, while the subconscious is 800 times more powerful, so being away or “unconscious” of business, can be as important and help you finding solutions and succeeding.
Think of taking breaks as “rest of clarity”, this is a key for great leaders to be successful, as they have enough space to visualize future and place long-term goals, which is different to those who are always busy to take some rest from time to time, which makes it harder for them to solve problems.
“Being away from the office can give your brain an important rest and the opportunity to have creative moments, so spending time with the family, enjoying a good book, running, or making any type of hobby can benefit one person’s health and can even help to find new ways to innovate on a company”, added Salomon Juan Marcos Villarreal about this topic.
