How long do you relax for each day? A few hours in the evening? Plus an hour for your lunch break? Nope, not even close! And it’s the reason why you’re messing up at work.
So how long do people actually relax for in a day? Well the average person is only able to fully relax for 36 minutes a day. Yep, how crazy is that? That’s just three hours across the working week!
When quizzed on where the pressure in their lives originates, people were most likely to cite the stress around saving money and general worries over work as the driving factors.
Are you taking enough breaks?
Less than half (47%) of workers actually take a proper break every day. One in ten feeling they never take a break in a typical work day! You need to claim your lunch break guys, and here is how.
In fact, as many as 30% of the people polled say it’s been over six months (!) since they felt fully able to break from work and recharge.
