  • Exactly that is what a lunch break is for to recharge your batteries and make you a better worker. I think to get away from your work place just for an hour is good for you. We use to walk to the Tower of London and if it was a nice day sit on the grass and talk. Now I am retired but I still remember those Lunch breaks with fond memories.

  • At one place because I was part time, I only had 15 minutes, barely enough to get settled and eat.

  • Agree! There seems to be a trend at my company to schedule conference calls during the lunch hour. I know it's hard to get global teams together, but as often as I can, I try to keep 1 hour to myself to walk, connect with colleagues, take a quick nap. Even if I can't go out and I stay at my desk, I make sure I disconnect from work by catching up on news or reading. When I dive back into work, I'm refreshed and ready to go.

  • 30-40 years ago in my nursing career, we always took a lunch break. Now, with cutbacks, I find myself 'eating over the keyboard,' which is horrible. Most recently, I've been walking outdoors, for even 15 minutes. It's amazing how much better I feel after lunch, than if I stayed inside & worked to get 'just one more thing done.' Let's take care of ourselves first, & the rest will follow.

  • This is sad... stop eating at your desk, it's bad for your health. Take time to eat, go outside, take a walk and relax.
