Match 3 Games and Your 15-Minute Break

15 Minute BreakWe know how it is with down time at work. Fifteen minutes isn’t enough time to dive into a new project but it’s too much time to just sit there and do nothing. We’ve taken some time to think about how to best handle such situations. The answer may surprise you.

We all need to at least look busy. For those of us who work on a computer all day, that might mean staring intently at your monitor, moving your mouse around deliberately, or grumbling when things don’t go your way. But is that really the way you want to spend your 15-minute break?

Fear not!

The answer you are searching for is closer than you think. No, we’re not talking about surfing the web. You already accomplished that this morning. We’re talking about refreshing your mind with a Match 3 game.

No other game genre is better suited for such quick bursts of casual gaming.

What’s that you say? You can’t just play games at work? We beg to differ! Studies have shown that breaks are very good for the brain, whether you are studying for a test or sitting behind your 9 to 5 desk. In essence, taking a break to play some games is in your company’s best interest.

Still not convinced? Here are a few reasons breaks are so important.

  1. Breaks allow you time to think about other things. Whether that is thinking about your next vacation or your weekend plans, it’s always good to step away from work and invigorate your mind with other topics.
  2. Studies have shown that you’re more productive when you take regular breaks. Maybe your very best work is actually being prevented because you aren’t playing Match 3 games.
  3. Breaks are a time to get other things done. After all, those gems aren’t going to match themselves…don’t we all have a responsibility to do our part?

One of the great things about playing a Match 3 game on your 15-minutes break is that you can pause the game, go back to work, and resume play on your next break.

We’ve compiled some great Match 3 games you can use to improve your productivity at work!
