Sometimes, there’s too much going on to take a proper lunch break, but the problem is, you need that break. Many studies show that your concentration actually benefits from breaks every two hours. If you have to work through your lunch break, use these strategies to take a little ten-fifteen minute break.
- Take a walk
- Eat outside or in a different location
- Talk to a coworker (only if they aren’t busy)
- Eat at your desk, but focus on something else (i.e. read the news, check your social media, etc.)
- Listen to music while you eat and take a mental break
