Work-from-home burnout is a very real problem. The work hours aren't clearly defined, neither are the breaks. On top of that, a lot of us are cooking and doing other chores ourselves. With stress levels rising, your Netflix binge-breaks aren't going to be enough. So, here's how you can build a playlist that relaxes and revitalises you, and keeps you productive from morning to night, between breaks and during free-time. 

According to Opensignal, a global authority on mobile network analysis, Airtel offers the best video experience and download speed experience in India.

Though keep in mind, poor data service during these breaks will make it more stressful than calming. So make sure you have a network connection that allows for quality streaming and downloads. According to Opensignal, a global authority on mobile network analysis, Airtel offers the best video experience and download speed experience in India.
