Not getting up and stepping away from your desk during your lunch hour could actually be hurting your work performance. Instead of staying chained to your desk, try switching it up and doing an activity that could help you be more productive and successful.
Try using your lunch break to exercise. Whether you go to the gym or just take a walk around the block, getting the blood pumping will benefit you greatly.
Don’t eat lunch at your desk; share your lunch hour with others instead. Take the time to chat and bond with your peers, and you might end up learning something in the process.
