Carving out time for a mindful lunch

by on
in Office Management

We heard a story recently about a woman who transformed her lunch hour.

Tired of seeing miserable-looking co-workers during lunchtime, she started a “lunch club” with colleagues. She began leaving the office every day for an hour to enjoy a leisurely meal.

It caught on. Soon everyone was happier and closer with their colleagues.

That’s not the norm. A survey from the American Dietetic Association reveals that 75% of office workers eat lunch deskside two or three times a week.

Craft your own “mindful lunch” that involves being with others, walking, being outdoors and eating healthful food.

Being with others releases relaxing, healthy hormones such as serotonin and oxytocin, while being outdoors reduces stress and boosts energy, researchers say. For the biggest health “bang,” bring disease-fighting foods—such as kiwi, quinoa and salmon—into your diet.
