Lunch breaks should be just that – a break in your work day for something to eat, to refresh yourself, mind and body. A time-out, a time off, a down-time for your thoughts to unwind, to get a bite of food, and to get back to work renewed. The break allows your thoughts to rejuvenate, your body to refuel, and you take a breather from the job. To face the rest of the workday back on target. A break will put your personal productivity on the rise for the rest of the day.
Some employees take advantage of the lunch break to run errands, walk in a park, sit and read a book, catch-up with co-workers and friends, or take a nap. Some people even actually eat lunch. Whatever turns your mind toward thoughts other than work at lunch time works in your favor and encourages the rise of personal productivity for the rest of the day.
Some employees use their lunch break to promote their personal productivity in other ways. These are on the prowl, hungry for promotion. They see this time as opportunity to brainstorm with co-workers regarding new direction. Eating together and discussing ideas can lead to amazing discoveries and broadening perspectives. Some employees spend the lunch hour reading articles about their industry. Charlie Hedges, in his book Getting the Right Things Right, states that if a person reads for one hour on one subject every day for one year, that person becomes an expert on that subject. If someone reads on one subject for one hour a day for five years, he is in the top 2% of experts on that subject in the world. Incentive for reading on your industry over the lunch break? Personal productivity on the rise, indeed.
