Take a break to accelerate : Healthy habits to increase resilience and energy
Recently, more attention has been given to the value and importance of taking a break during and after work. We know that our performance on the long term depends on the alternation between activation and recovery.
However, due to the pandemic and the sudden imposed homeworking, people have found it very difficult to balance these two conditions. The boundaries between work and private life have become vague and difficult to maintain. People experience more fatigue, stress and sleep complaints.
