You don't. Breaks are for wimps.

When I feel stressed out, that's when I take a break.

When the "off by one" errors start popping up it's time for a break.

A procrastinator like me has to take a break from doing nothing in order to get things done.

Basically, it's time to take a break from taking a break when there's no longer time to break.

Depends on what I am doing. If I am writing a report, it is time to take a break when I start making obvious spelling and grammatical errors, or have to look up definitions for words that I already know the meaning of. If I am turning wrenches, I need to take a break or call it quits for the day when I start missing basic stuff, or forget to torque something to spec. If I run into a problem and can't solve it within four hours, I need to take a beer and anime break. At that point I'll probably be on the verge of throwing a wrench through the wall anyway. At work I take a lunch break. We get an hour to eat lunch (paid), but I usually only sit around for the time it takes to eat my sandwich or bento box. Well, unless my boss or supervisor is buying, or if I get to eat at the plant and BS with the guys that are fun to talk to. Normally I am too busy to spend five to ten minutes eating and fifty minutes sitting around. I only take additional breaks during the workday when it is unbearably hot out. We had a span of two weeks last summer where it was 105-114 degrees. I work outside, and that heat really sucked the energy out of me. I could barely manage 12-13 hour days and was moving a lot slower that usual.

When I get really frustrated or tired. Like when I was tired and trying to write some code for a mod for this game and I was getting really frustrated because I kept messing things up and I was just sooo tired and wanted to fall asleep. Actually I think I fell asleep 2 mins later and then woke up and turned the computer off and went to bed.

Except for the tenacious part, I'm kind of the same. Personally, if I'm not happy with my current progress/position, my mindset is "I'm not holding myself to a high enough standard and I'm not working hard enough."

It's when you feel tired right?

Well that's when I take a break.

And it's to come back refreshed so you can tackle on more much, much faster, with a different perspective.

Well I'm done being captain obvious

Just remember that you can't beat Yoshihiro Togashi "breaks"

When I start falling asleep or I read the same sentence four or five times and it stilllllllll doesn't make any sense.
It's either time to crash out or go for a walk/run....

Sometimes it can also be time for a beer or two or three or four or . . . . . That might be considered giving up more than taking a break.
