A new study suggests that workers aren’t taking enough breaks – despite higher levels of stress and fatigue on the job.
Researchers at the University of Waterloo say employees would often keep working despite wanting a break – possibly due to pressure from supervisors or fear of falling behind.
The study calls it a “misconception” that breaks lower productivity – pointing out that regular breaks can help maintain focus and performance.
