Tea Break

There's more to a tea break than loading up on theanine (a brain performance enhancer, actually). Tea and lunch breaks give you time for mental stretching and social interaction. A brisk fifteen-minute walk outdoors invigorates the body, clears the mind, and opens the door to real-world sensory stimulation. Try fostering non stressful, mind-expanding interactions during this time as well. Enlist some coworkers to start a walking, talking, or discussion group during breaks or lunch. Breaks allow to you to relax and recollect your thoughts, but your mind never stops working. So make the best of your break to stay sharp, even in relaxing times.
