Employees who take a sociable lunch break compromise their focus on detailed tasks when they come back to the office, according to a new study reported in Science News.

Researchers at Humboldt Uni­­ver­­sity in Berlin tested one group of workers who relaxed over a leisurely lunch against a group who ate the same lunch, but within 20 minutes, alone at their desks.

The researchers then measured brain activity of the two groups and found that the brain’s error-monitoring system ran a little sluggish on those who dined out.
