“Lack of activity destroys the good condition of every human being, while movement and methodical physical exercise save it and preserve it.”
Each collaborator must begin proactively activating their mind.
Perhaps in your workspace, they tended to take active breaks or at lunch, you managed to distract yourself.
The issue of the active pause intensified with teleworking since the worker was for a long time subject to pending tasks, online meetings, or with the laptop until dawn.
Perhaps with the home office, some forgot to comply with the routine of active breaks, those that did with their colleagues in the office, and simply spent time on the laptop trying to accomplish their tasks.
However, we will offer you a suggestion to fulfill them virtually with your co-workers or learn to enjoy being alone.
What are “active pauses”?
Active breaks are phases of time of physical activity developed in the work environment, with a minimum continuous duration of 10 minutes, which includes physical adaptation, cardiovascular, muscle strengthening, and flexibility improvement, seeking to reduce cardiovascular risk and muscle injuries due to overuse associated with work performance.
If in your office there is no time for an active break, we tell you what it is about, and how to develop a dynamic work environment.
Active Pauses will be a way to promote physical activity, as a habit in healthy life, therefore, educational programs should be developed on the importance and benefits of regular physical activity.
Working can also combat a sedentary lifestyle.
It has been investigated that not taking active breaks causes stress, burnout, visual fatigue, back pain, and a higher incidence of carpal tunnel, among other conditions.
