Eating at your desk

I’ll just finish this. This deadline is too close. A customer needs this fast. Does this sound familiar when asked if you would like to go for lunch? We all know that eating at our desks everyday is bad for us but taking a break at lunch time to step away from your desk can improve both your body and brain, keeping your muscles and mind fit.

Boosting your wellness in the workplace can all start with stepping away from your computer screens and putting down your smart phones to practice mindful eating. Many of us get distracted whilst eating and working and then we don’t recognise when we are full.

Why not make this a social thing? Take time to sit and talk to a colleague about non-work related topics and whether it’s going for a walk, sitting in communal area or visiting Craggies, give yourself that much needed break. You’ll reap the benefits in your mental state and work.
