We all know too well, that we are busy. Or at least, we feel busy. Busy with all the meetings, deadlines and interruptions. And it is so hard to break with this ‘busyness’. But the Swedish do not have that same feeling, at least most of them. They have something in their culture we can all learn from. They institutionalized a daily break, called Fika. Also, see the blog of Janet Mesh on Trello.
Fika (pronounced “fee-kah”), literally translated as ‘a coffee and cake break’. But that doesn’t describe even half of what it really is. It’s a ritual. It’s about deliberately taking a break from your busy work. It’s a moment to socialize, or a moment to be on your own. It’s outside of your working environment, at a cafe. And it usually includes a cup of coffee or tea.
