Increasing work efficiency by using set intervals of focused work and breaks.
Before learning about units and applying them, I would often wonder: Where did time go? And that was, I think, because I didn’t set clear boundaries between working and taking breaks.
Working in units helps me to draw a clear line between both and has helped me focus, take efficient breaks and be less stressed.
Working in Units
Working: 45 minutes without distration!
Taking breaks: anything between 5 – 15 minutes. Off-screen and away from your desk!
Working in units collectively can add some more magic. It can be a great support to know that another person in the room is concentrating and focused – and – it can be even greater to then take breaks together.
