Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0425160033, Paperback)

This odd little book contains exactly what it claims: things to do when you're taking a break at work. James Joseph asserts that when you break with a purpose in mind instead of stepping out for another caffeine jolt, taking frequent interludes will allow you to get more done. It eases the fatigue and boredom that can build up during the course of a day. The suggestions range from the remarkably simple--get a drink of water to stave off dehydration; gaze out the window to get some sun--to the remarkably deep, such as pondering your philosophy of life. Joseph also gives bite-size bits of meditation, right-brain thinking, and affirmations and visualization, and makes them sound so quick and easy that you may wonder why you weren't doing yogic breathing in your cubicle before.
