You’ll accomplish more
When you plow through lunch sat at your computer, your brain doesn’t get a chance to switch off, and regroup. The result – an afternoon characterized by foggy thinking, tiredness and diminished productivity. Stepping away at lunch can help your brain fire on all cylinders. “There’s an element of refreshment that a different environment, particularly an external environment, [can bring],” says Dr. Pipe. Returning to work in 60 minutes time, you’ll feel invigorated and refueled, ready to take on the afternoon’s challenges.
