It's Time for a Kit Kat Break

We all know how hard work, commitment, and perseverance are key to getting ahead in whatever business or field you are in. But few realize the importance of taking breaks in ensuring that you don't experience the dreaded burnouts that keep you from reaching and achieving your goals. Did you know that taking short five-minute breaks while at work can help you concentrate better and recharge your energy so you can perform better and accomplish your tasks more efficiently?

Sometimes though, when we're too focused on the tasks at hand, we tend to forget to take a break. As a fashion and lifestyle blogger and aspiring entrepreneur, I too am guilty of getting caught up with multiple tasks during the day. My typical workday consists of sending out and replying to emails, drafting and sending out business correspondences, attending meetings with business associates and suppliers, photo shoots, writing and editing my blog, and working on my social media accounts. On extra busy days, I need to squeeze in events during the day and sometimes, till late evenings.

It can get pretty hectic sometimes and it's easy to forget to take that much-needed break. Fortunately, there's a new movement by Kit Kat called the #KitKatBreakMovement which was launched recently. It's all about enjoining people to go on these much needed five-minute breaks! The campaign was first introduced to me and fellow bloggers through an exclusive movie screening of Guardians of the Galaxy last Thursday, July 31, at Greenbelt 3. Before the movie started, a video about the #KitKatBreakMovement
was shown.

Basically, the campaign tells you not to let a busy, stressful day get to you by remembering to take breaks. It also tells you to help spread the word about the importance of taking breaks to your family members, friends, colleagues, and others you care about by becoming an Agent of the #KitKatBreakMovement. Log on to to find out how you can be one!

I, myself, am a certified Agent of the #KitKatBreakMovement!
If you feel stress is getting the best of you,
call on Agent Nicole to save the day!

So, no matter how busy or toxic the day gets, there's no longer any reason to forget to take a break! You know you need it, you know it's the healthy thing to do, and now there are Agents of the #KitKatBreakMovement all over town to remind you to take that break!

Hi! I'm your friendly Break Movement Agent Nicole!

The backside of my Agent Shirt!

On most days, I am on my laptop for hours to write and edit my blog and send out and reply to emails.

I also do a lot of research to stay updated about the latest trends in the fashion industry.

Aside from my blog, maintaining all my social media accounts can take a lot of time. I have several that I actively maintain and update.

It's easy to get so absorbed in work, you start feeling drained just halfway through the day!
 One of the best ways to relax is by listening to music.

Have you heard of the #KitKatBreakMovement yet? Go to now and be part of it!
