Take a break, it does help your memory

29 06 2006

Lifehack.org has found scientific proof that supports the idea that your memory will be helped by taking breaks….this is wonderful news for all of us who enjoy milling around the office from time to time.

The only comment I have is that the research is based on rats. Rats….I understand that rats are used in research and the results applied to humans…but am I going to be able to justify my next break because it was good for a rats memory?

Do I have to scurry from my desk to the coffee machine, hugging the walls, for the break to be effective?
