Take a Lunch Break
"If you were working in the office, you wouldn't be working for eight hours straight, so don't expect yourself to do that while at home," Blankenheim said. A survey from Tork, a brand from the global health and hygiene company Essity, revealed that those who take daily lunch breaks are happier and more efficient at work. Blankenheim noted that "taking short breaks throughout the day will help you return to work with a renewed focus." Use this time to eat away for your work space. If you can, go for a walk, too, since research shows it can improve both mood and cognitive performance.
