      Hey Deco
      I get lots of breaks in my job! Work can be busy but there is always time to meet people for coffee and we usually take about 45 mins for lunch. You’d go crazy if the job was so busy that you couldn’t take breaks!

      We have coffee stations in work where I can go anytime and make myself a drink – I usually go 3 times a day. I get a 1 hour lunchbreak which I take about 3 times a week – the other days Im so busy I just run across the road and buy a sandwich which I eat at my desk.

      Hi Deco,

      With engineering sometimes you find yourself going around in circles trying to find a solution. This is why it’s very important to take breaks.

      Some days I am very busy and I don’t get a break at all. Other days I need to go for a quick walk to clear my head and come back to think about the solution with a fresh mind.

      In my work, you can take breaks whenever you need one.
