How Frequent Should I Take Break At Work?

It is commonly practice that workers do not take breaks until they need to grab some water or go to the restroom.  This practice can easily cause injuries because human bodies need to move around in order to promote circulation.  As an ergonomic recommendation, one should take frequent micro-breaks every 40 to 45 minutes of their work sessions.  These micro-breaks can be as short as two minutes each.  During break times, stretching exercises should be performed in order to enhance circulation and the range of motions of the joints.
