How long do you take for your lunch break? Do you even take a lunch break? Unless you optimise your lunch break now, it can impact your productivity, career growth and overall health. Here the science to back up the reasoning:
According to a recent survey carried out by SODEXO and UK Active, a not for profit health body, an average lunch-break in the UK is shorter by 1/3 compared to 6 years ago and only lasts 22 minutes which can be not only impacting your waistline but also your career growth.
One in five workers don’t even leave their desk at lunchtime as they are feeling under pressure to deliver on target, stressing under workloads and also trying to impress management.
Scientists already confirmed that dining ‘al desco’ has the opposite effect both on your physical and mental health, not to mention your productivity levels.
While it’s ok sometimes to skip eating when you are on a Fast Diet or Keto, you need to ensure that you are drinking enough and use the lunch time for at least a short walk.
Numerous studies proved that a break from sitting at your desk helps in a number of different ways:
1. Increased productivity. While taking breaks might sound counter intuitive when it comes to boosting productivity, it’s one of the best ways to do so. Therefore a lunch break can help prevent an unproductive mid-afternoon slump.
2. Improved mental well-being. You need time to recharge. Stress is incredibly common in a busy workplace, and it has detrimental effects on your mental health.
3. Creativity boost. Taking a break can give you a fresh perspective on challenging projects. It’s hard for you to develop new ideas or solutions when you’ve been looking at the same thing all day. Use your lunch time to switch your focus away from the task at hand and make a nice cup of Absolu to recharge and perform at the top of your abilities.
Absolu, the milder alternative to Absolu Plus, can be used to support you throughout the morning and afternoon and is one of the simplest ways to optimise your lunch break as it only takes 5 minutes to brew.
Absolu Smart Tea hydrates you, gives you energy, helps you stay calm and keeps hunger at bay.
It can reduce bloating and aid digestion. It has gentle yet effective cleansing which you can safely use at work and not worry about side effects. Most importantly a constant slow release of natural caffeine will enhance your workplace focus and recall.
And best of all, it can help stimulate and sustain your weight loss.
