Taking A Proper Luch Break: Steps To Improve Your State of Well-Being

Taking A Proper Luch Break: Steps To Improve Your State of Well-Being
  1. Schedule an actual lunch break. Even though we're working from home it doesn't mean that we have to sit in our chairs the entire day working. It is important to have time for yourself.
  2. Move away from your work area and have a change in environment. Set the table where you can eat peacefully and not think about work for the next 30 minutes or so.
  3. Start behaving like you're actually going to work. Sometimes, it can be less stressful and even motivating to think that you're reporting to the office.

Mindful Pause For Lunch

Since we've been deprived of socialization and have been away from people for as long as we can remember it's important to try and reach out to people.

Taking a break away from your workstation and having lunch maybe at the park or just by the balcony of your place and someone to talk to on the phone can recharge our batteries and possibly make us more focused and creative for the rest of the day.

Unconscious Eating

Having close proximity to food will increase the chances of developing a habit called "unconscious eating" where an individual will eat without giving it much thought and ignore the physiological cues that are being given to us while eating a meal.

When we do not pay attention to the cues being alerted to us regarding satiety we tend to eat quickly and don't feel full or satisfied from what we've eaten. Moreover, having easier access to food can also lead to higher calorie consumption.

Sleeping On The Job

Working from home carries with itself unique challenges that are not addressed or even acknowledged in many cases.

Dozing off during work is often an unwanted effect of longer working hours and family responsibilities. Lack of a good night’s sleep isn’t helping either.
