There is a lot of science behind the impact of taking breaks on productivity. Most of our sessions are no longer than your average meeting or lunch break - we can help you reap the benefits!
The adult attention has has reduced by one third in just over a decade, and is now on par with that of a goldfish (9 seconds!). Harvard scientists attribute omnipresent technology and an always on mentality to the changing neurochemistry of our brains, leading to shallow information processing. (Yikes!)
Encouraging breaks can be a strategic differentiator in the workplace, yet many of us work through lunchbreaks, or take few breaks during the day. We have a limited supply of attention each day, and multitasking and being always connected to a stream of emails, work and messages has been found by researchers at UCL to reduce IQ by 10 points - the same as a sleepless night
Focusing on a certain task for extended periods blocks the brain's ability to register the stimulus in front of it. Engaging in unrelated activities to their focussed work, particularly in creative activities where individuals can engage with their 'right brain' and the mind can enter into a 'diffuse' mental state and wander, increases individual's ability to problem solve and breakthrough thinking
Workers with creative hobbies outside of work have also been found by researchers to perform up to 15-30% higher performance at work. Creative activities were found to help people cope with the demands of their job, be more creative, as well as help co-workers more readily.
Trying new creative activities has been found by clinical researchers to have positive impacts on wellbeing, by helping to avoid stress, creating mindspace and building self esteem and confidence.
Wellbeing benefits were reported regardless of skill level, meaning its the taking part that counts, and engaging in just a single session of a creative activity brings wellbeing benefits, with cumulative effects from regular engagement. A great reason to try something new!
