Here at CLARETY we know that the secret to increasing your productivity levels throughout a busy work day is to take mindful breaks to reset and refocus. Don’t just take our word for it. Scientific American’s Ferris Jabr says,

“Maintaining unbroken focus or navigating demanding intellectual territory for several hours really does burn enough energy to leave one feeling drained,” 

Researchers have found that there is no way to work at your highest level for long periods of time.

This is why we felt it was a MUST to create this blog on our site to share inspiration hits and practical exercises designed for you to take mindful breaks. Ones that will allow you to recharge your energy levels and get focused and highly productive for the work cycle ahead.
