Reduce Stress and Burnout

Overwork can lead to stress and depression. But even short breaks can reduce feelings of stress, restore emotional health, and increase feelings of well-being.

Help Employees Stay Sharp

The brain isn’t wired to maintain high-level performance for several hours. To do our best work, we all need time to rest and replenish our mental and physical energy.

Breaks are the unparalleled way to boost cognitive performance: Memory, learning, and creativity are improved after short breaks—and decision fatigue and procrastination are reduced.

Spark Engagement and Connection

Employees with high well-being feel supported and appreciated at work, have meaningful connections with their peers and leaders, and feel a strong sense of purpose—97% of Bright Breaks users report an overall improvement in their well-being!

Sustain Physical Health and Prevent Illness

Periodically standing, stretching, walking, or exercising throughout the workday can minimize or prevent physical ailments—and reduce the risk of more serious chronic illnesses. It’s a win for your employees and a win for your healthcare and insurance expenses.

I love using Bright Breaks, it has made me feel empowered to take back "me" time and to take care of myself, thus being able to take care of the important people in my life. Bright Breaks has exceeded my expectations in ease of use and how interactive and motivating the instructors are, for this reason I would recommend Bright Breaks to anyone.
