Tips & Tricks:
Two key reasons why lunch is critical for peak performance throughout the day:
- It gives you energy. Of course, the most obvious benefit is removing hunger and the distractions that brings. But having lunch also prevents drowsiness, a lack of focus and fatigue.
- It sparks creativity. A change of scenery during lunch breaks, especially natural scenery, invites new ideas and helps in percolating current ones.
How to fix lunch:
- Take a proper lunch. Get away from the desk and eat outside with your colleagues.
- Take a walk. Exercise while you eat with a stroll at a park and enjoy the surroundings.
And it goes without saying: don’t overdo lunch as well! Here’s how to overcome an afternoon productivity slump.
