Breaks in Greece are less task and more self related.
The Greek word for break is “dialemma” which is very close to Plato’s meaning of a musical pause. The “dialemma” in Greece is defined by an individual urge to cover, in the most cases, the need to be with others.
It is not organized around a task, which is let to rest in order to be picked up later. Breaks in Greece are interludes and not interruptions.
