Why Your Cell Phone Makes You A Better Employee

If you feel stressed at work today, go ahead and pick up your cell phone. It might make you a better employee.

A new study found people who used their smartphones at work are more productive and happier.

But the key is that this phone break is done in short spurts just for one or two minutes, a few times a day.

The researchers said while it might seem like a distraction, a smartphone might help productivity because people are more refreshed and less stressed when they can briefly talk with family members or play a short game.

If you're looking for some other non- smartphone related ways to reduce stress at work, experts recommend you eat healthy food, get enough sleep, chat with co-workers or take a coffee break.
