Although I work primarily from home, our team does gather together for meetings at least every month and you can bet that there is always a coffee break or two worked into our epic strategy sessions. In fact, I find myself stopping for coffee breaks when I'm at home too. And I'm often enjoying a cup when I catch up with my co-workers over the phone. Coffee breaks have become such an integral part of the American workforce sub-culture don't you think? Here are some interesting facts about them.


Coffee Break Fun Facts

  • For many office workers (89%), a good cup of coffee can make their entire workday better. Without their daily cup of coffee, coffee drinkers can feel a range of negative emotions— exhausted (36%), irritable (35%), unproductive (30%), disorganized (20%), or forgetful (14%). Below, please find additional statics from the Coffee Break Survey.
  • The majority (85%) also say having coffee with a client or colleague can be a great way to build relationships.

I even like to get outside and revel in being outdoors for a bit while I'm on said break. Here are some tips from career expert Nicole Williams on making the most of your coffee break...
