Take A Technology Break

Wednesday, March 21, 2018

It is hard to imagine, but a recent study showed the average person spends 11 hours a day using some form of technology. You can probably readily admit you spend a large part of your day focused on technology.

Modern technology offers lots of advantages in business, but those amazing advantages can turn into disadvantages if you never take a technology break.

Studies continually demonstrate that turning off can help you relax and be more productive when you return to your work.

So, how do you take a technology break?

The easiest way is to choose a time every day to power off all your devices. It should be a time you can commit to - your break time or lunch time. Use your technology break to take a walk, relax, rejuvenate, or make real human connections.

You will be glad you did, especially when you return to work more focused and productive, with your senses fresh and intact, and ready to build on those connections you made during your technology break.
