1. Calming Meditative state

Take a break and open your favourite music application. Type “soothing music” you get a playlist of meditative music. Prefer listening to flute or sea waves music for at least 15 minutes. It helps you to relax and triggers your creative side.

2. Go hug the life outside

Leave your home, run to the grocery store or buy some veggies. Step outside, go to your roof. Soak yourself in the sun, watch the sky, look at the life around you. Be ‘there’! You will feel rejuvenated and ready to approach work differently.

3. Listen to Music

Music has always been a great mood enhancer. Play your favourite music, dance to it if you have to. Smile with it, groove for a while and get back to work in a fresh mood.

4. Have a break from Tech!

Don’t touch your phone once you decide to take a break. Give yourself the freedom to recharge itself. Walk around in the home and check out if plants are dried off, water them. Don’t think of your gadgets for those 15 minutes.

5. Read a book

The best way to take a break is to read something that enlightens us, gives us a new perspective and books are our best friends. Pick a book from the desk, go out, sit on the balcony and read a few lines. Give yourself a pleasure to read something pre-written, not something which stresses you out.
