    Few breaks and keep them short.

    Hi!
    There's a coffee machine, and someone says: "few breaks and keep them short.". What does it mean?

    Don't take very many breaks and, when you do have a break, it must be a short one.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    A break here means stopping work to have a coffee.
