For a More Creative Brain, Take Breaks

The brain needs breaks just as the body needs breaks. Taking a breather from thinking can increase productivity with work or school tasks. For long creative problems, it is best to pace the work and schedule mental breaks. The work will suffer if the brain is tired. Taking a walk or a quick nap will diffuse the brain and cause it to reset for the task being worked. Treat the brain as a muscle and strengthen it.
