Coffee break benefits

Time spent on a coffee break with colleagues is not time wasted. In fact: that socialising moment created between colleagues seems to bring real benefits.

Let’s discover together all the coffee break benefits

In the United States, a survey conducted by Forbes showed that 90 per cent of the employees interviewed returned to their desks with greater concentration, nine ideas to develop and a new-found momentum. This is thanks to a 15-minute break from activities.

Moreover, momentarily stopping work and getting away from your desk is crucial. First of all for our physique. Indeed, when we spend many hours sitting at a desk in front of a screen, our muscles benefit from taking four steps. It is now well known that five minutes of activity every hour helps, in fact, to combat the negative effects of sedentariness.

Concept work engages our brain constantly. A coffee break is what is needed to regain mental freshness. In this regard, a recent study pointed out that tiredness negatively influences the ability to make lucid decisions. Therefore, in order to make informed decisions, a break is indispensable.

Drinking coffee and chatting with colleagues, finally, helps socialising and team building, with the advantage of creating a more relaxed, serene working environment, in which difficulties are better dealt with and even newcomers do not struggle to integrate.

Among the European countries famous for their work-life balance and work culture is Sweden, where the coffee break is an ingrained ritual.

But when is the best time?

The best time to reap the benefits of a coffee break is between 9.30 and 11.30 a.m., an answer that comes to us from science because it explains that it is precisely at this time that the cortisol hormone physiologically starts to drop.
