One of the major advantages of working from home is you can choose when to work. But when everything is in your control, it also sort of ties you up. And it needs great deal of discipline and will power to let go of your control. So, are you taking more breaks than what you used to when you were on a day job or are you tied up? It would be interesting to know. Lets be genuine. Now, breaks can be classified as full breaks and half breaks. It's a full break when you absolutely lose touch with your business. Half breaks are when you partially oversee your day-to-day operations using laptop or other means. Lets keep the duration as a minimum 4 days. And mind you, the breaks must be intentional and not due to some emergency. OK, regarding me, I have not had a full break since ages and I don't think I'll ever be able to do that! My last half break (1 week) was 6 months back. And again in a week's time of a months duration.
