Taking a Break Doesn't Always Mean Unplugging

Whether you're facing back-to-back video calls or just a non-stop flurry of email, work can leave you in a screen haze unless you make a point of taking periodic, regenerative breaks. As a 2015 article in the Journal of Applied Psychology put it, our professional "energy, motivation and concentration... are like batteries that periodically need recharging."

While you can and should take breaks by stepping away from your devices and screens, you may not always have the time or the autonomy to do so. (In our forthcoming book, Remote, Inc., Robert C.

But if you choose the right screen-based breaks, they can provide you with similar benefits as the offline variety and help you take more breaks throughout the day.
