So, I wrote this article during my lunch break.

Working at home means sometimes not taking the necessary breaks! It’s easy to just carry on.

Taking a break is crucial to maintaining balance.

So, I decided to take a few minutes to write my thoughts, and then I thought I’d share them with you.

Taking breaks is important for mental health.

Concentrating on work continually is not healthy.

It’s important to take a breather.
To reflect on the day, and to switch gears.

Mental health is very important for everyone.

Whether a schoolchild, parents at home with small children, people sitting at their computer all day, and those outside doing the heavy lifting.


Without a break, we can go ever-so-slightly mad.

Take a break.
