MANILA, Philippines — Taking a break from work or school and all other activities at home or in the office is a must. It is not laziness to take a break but rather a productive pause to reboot and unwind.

Many people are often overwhelmed with a deluge of work that they tend to forget that much-needed downtime. Add to that this pandemic fatigue that’s draining everyone’s energy. 

“Taking breaks allows one’s brain and body to get the necessary recharge it needs to keep going,” Britanny Johnson, a licensed mental health counselor said.

Give yourself permission to relax and while at it, give that break time a delicious crunch with Gardenia’s toasty treats.

Take a break for your mental health

Time may be golden and we should make the most out of it but that doesn’t mean drowning yourself with work. That’s unproductive when it comes to your mental health. Break time actually increases productivity, replenishes attention and encourages creativity. It pays to take a break, go for a walk, pause and clear your head. 

A tip from Mental Health.org suggests a change of scene or a change of pace is good for one’s mental health: “It could be a five-minute pause from cleaning your kitchen, a half-hour lunch break at work, or a weekend exploring somewhere new."

Taking a break means recharging and enjoying something that could make you happier to continue with the grind. Aside from that, break time allows one to pause and plan, realign and see things from a better perspective.

Based on observations, usually, one can only focus for 90 minutes straight before it starts wandering. A 15- to 20-minute break in between helps one sustain energy and concentration to fulfill their tasks for the rest of the day.

And while having that much-needed break, enjoy it with Gardenia Butter Toast!
