You’ve spent the morning juggling phone calls or going through your papers for a big meeting you’ve got coming up this afternoon.
It’s time for lunch.Aren’t we all feel like children at school times when the bell rings for lunch break?One of the best work advice I received from my father was to make sure to take my lunch hour.This post refers genuinely to the people out there-first of all myself-who works indoors.One of the not so healthy habits of working in the office is to feel lazy and eat your lunch at your desk!No fresh air for almost 6-8 hours stretches of time-meaning no sunlight on your skin resulting in overall mood swings.
Make it your new resolution and start using your lunch break wisely,taking it as your ritual time.You need to take your mind off work for half an hour or so.You really deserve that after being busy bee this morning.
What better way to spend your well-earned break and make it as a surefire way to enhance your productivity,mindset,and well-being.
Here are My 5 ways to wisely spend your lunch break.
1. Get A Manicure/Massage
Do self-care.Get a manicure or pedicure.Get a Massaage.It will take less than 45 minutes and you are going to feel relaxed and chilled.Lunch time is your time and you should do something for yourself.
2. Walk in the Park/your neighborhood
Find a calming spot in your office area and get some fresh air.Luckily My office is 5 mins walking distance from the park.After long hours being indoors,walking in the park and being in nature feels so good.
My mediating is to grab my Cappuccino sit on a banck outside,try to clear my mind from the-to do list-and clear away my thoughts from my head.It takes me no more than 15 mins and my stress fades away.Try to find your quite space within.
4. Read a book/magazine
Grab a love story/fiction book or fashion/interior design magazine.Something accesses a different part of your brain.Read something that doesn’t feel like work.
5. Call someone you love
Again its using the technology but it’s lunch time and hopefully other people you care for and love are taking lunch break same time as you.It’s always nice to catch up with them.
