Episode 17: Lunch is for Lunchin’
When it comes to your lunchbreak, it’s one of the most important parts of your day. Just remember this phrase: work is for workin’ & lunch is for lunchin’
In this episode, we discuss the crucial nature of the lunchbreak. In fact, this entire episode was born from an overheard conversation. Two men were discussing whether to bring their laptops with them to lunch, when one replied:
Work is for workin’ – lunch is for lunchin’
Truer words have never been spoken. This speaks right to the heart of hustle culture: deciding whether or not to truly take a break or to keep working while you eat to recharge. Taking a break is healthy. Taking a break is good. Take a break is essential to your performance as an employee and as a human.
So, what are your takeaways from today’s episode?
- Schedule and plan your breaks. Try to be punctual and have your food plans ready. Make the most of your time off and spend it truly recharging the best way you know how.
- Step away from your desk. Find a new scene for your break. Whether it is your car, the breakroom, a bench outside, or a restaurant down the street, find a new spot to call your own for your lunchbreak.
- Own your break. Your break, whether it’s 30 minutes, an hour, or longer, should be yours. A glorious break to reset your mind and give you focus that is fully yours. So, own your break. Eat, exercise, or take a nap. We’ve done it all.
At the end of the day, the only wrong way to nap is not letting yourself recharge by disconnecting from the work for just a bit. It’s healthy and you’ll be the better for it. Trust us. Put down the hustle for a few minutes and become a better you.
