 Healthy Computing: Like the British 
 
The following is one in an ongoing series of columns entitled Healthy Computing Tips by . View all columns in series
Working intensely and continuously without breaks may contribute to discomfort and pain. Although we know that frequent breaks provide a respite, we are generally unreliable in reminding ourselves to take a break because we get captured by our tasks and only stop working after we experience discomfort. Reduce discomfort and increase social support by instituting regular tea breaks LIKE THE BRITISH.

HOW TO BE LIKE THE BRITISH

Twice a day during the morning and afternoon stop work and take an actual fifteen-minute break. Place a sign on the office door letting people know the office is closed for a specific time period. During this break, leave your work area and, if appropriate, take this break with your co-workers while drinking tea (it appears to have anticancer properties) and sharing positive experiences.

To increase social support, bring snacks to be shared with co-workers.
