Take Long Breaks

Taking a significant break after a long period of focused work beats short intermittent breaks. Short intermittent breaks aren’t bad, they can help to prep the mind when the brain wants to switch to a task with similar technical responsibilities but different outcomes, etc. But a long break that has no work interference or thoughts will rest, nourish and reinvigorate the brain, therefore creatives, innovators, etc get insight and novel understanding after staying off their work for some time.
