Despite this, some of us more contentious types often feel guilty about taking a break at work – especially if we have a deadline looming ahead of us. The fact of the matter is, those of us who recognise the importance of taking a break are more likely to be alert and productive than those of us who don’t. That colleague of yours who’s frowned upon for making too many trips to the vending machines may actually be on to something after all.

So next time your mind wanders or you feel red in the face, just remind yourself of the importance of taking a break at work ( with a delicious coffee, tea or soft drink in hand, of course ).
