    Benefits of Tea Break Lifestyle

    For most companies and at some events around the world, the tea break is the most coveted moment of the day mainly because it offers employees, participants or organisers the essential opportunity to recover from the shortage of labour and work stress. This could also mean an emergency exit from a busy schedule for short leisure time.

    Tea, being the most consumed beverage in the world after water, covers an entirely different aura to the people gathered around it. There are companies such as Twinings Teashop that provide companies with a wide variety of flavours.

    Whether for an informal breakfast, morning meetings or just socialising in the workplace, tea and coffee breaks are essential to create a healthy balance between work life and work culture. While some companies consider tea breaks to be a waste, organisations in different countries have set standards to create a refreshing tea and coffee culture. This is one of the best tools to attract the best talent from around the world and ensure the work-life balance of the organisation.

    It takes you out of your desk

    Not only eyes and heads can suffer; the body was not designed to work in the office all day, but it is the reality for millions of office workers, and this contributes to increase obesity, postural deformities, back pain, musculoskeletal disorders and many more.

    It can be beneficial to get up from your desk several times a day. It does not seem like much, but even a short walk to the tea station stimulates the blood circulation and also the movement of limbs and joints. So do not be afraid of taking rounds, you can even do a quick stretch while at the kettle.

    Reduce stress

    Tea brings better thinking and comes with a lot of science that makes it easier for people to feel good.

    It’s not just the content of our cups, but also the fact that we can take a breath, which can be very helpful in rebalancing the mind. Less productivity means you are exhausted. So you think you’re too busy to make a cup of tea? You could miss a trick…

    It keeps you hydrated

    Being hydrated is also related to the levels of productivity. Never underestimate the effects of dehydration; It can cause the feel like garbage (tiredness, headaches, etc.) and affect concentration.

    So “forgetting” to drink, or simply ignoring your thirst because you are busy, is indeed very counterproductive. Therefore, take the cup and fill it with Tea.

    It connects you with your colleagues.

    Even small interactions with people in our environment can significantly influence our well-being. I do not care how important your job is. Nobody is too busy to say, “Do you want a cup?” occasionally.

    Life and work can be a lonely place for many people. The small gesture of someone for a round of tea could really brighten their day and your day. An even relaxed and friendly environment is never dangerous for it to increase employee productivity and retention; the bosses should take note.
