Missing Your Lunch Break
Busy days at work can be exhausting. They become exponentially more exhausting if you happen to miss your lunch.
How is it possible? There really shouldn’t be a reason why someone can’t sit down for 10-15 minutes and their lunch. I guess that is easier said than done.
It does happen and can take the life out of you. You shouldn’t operate heavy machinery while under the influence of certain drugs. In the office, you shouldn’t be asked to attend meetings on an empty stomach.
I’m the type of person that fades fast without food in the system. If the day is busy and full of meetings, it can be very difficult to planyour lunch break. But it does need to be planned.
Missing an open 30 minute window for lunch can be the defining factor between a good day and a bad one.
There are plenty of strategies that can help such as eating something on a plate that allows you to work through lunch, grabbing something fast like pizza, or forcing yourself to leave at the same time
It can be a constant battle to find the time on certain occasions but well worth it in the end. I just can’t stand missing lunch. This is definitely one benefit to working in the restaurant industry.
