How To Be More Productive In Your Workplace (And Everywhere Else) – Self Development Secrets
There are certain things you can do that will make you more productive in all areas of your life, and some of them are surprisingly simple like just taking a break!
So, to ensure you don’t accuse me of being one-sided this article from Make Use Of links to a study that argues that we don’t need to take breaks and if we do, instead of making us more productive it can make us less so.
