Why You Should Never Eat Lunch at Your Office Desk July 17, 2019

Why You Should Never Eat Lunch at Your Office Desk, Bronx, New York

It’s easy to get into the bad habit of eating lunch at your desk. Many workers do it because they think they are saving time; in fact, this is damaging to both your health and career. Here’s why you should be getting up and going out to a restaurant in the middle of each work day to enjoy your lunch.

The Consequences of Eating at Your Desk

Sitting at a desk all day can already be bad for your health. Studies have found that long-term sitting leads to high risks of gaining weight, heart disease, type two diabetes, depression, anxiety, and sore joints. This means that people who work in an office need to get up throughout the day to stretch their muscles and get blood pumping — going elsewhere for your lunch provides some overdue exercise.

restaurantThis habit also has some consequences from your mental health. You may think you’re being more productive by catching up on emails as you eat, but this practice negatively affects productivity. Taking some breaks throughout the day, with a longer one in the middle of your shift, brings down your stress levels to prevent burnout and fatigue. Getting outside of the office and away from your computer can also get your creative juices flowing, which may provide the inspiration you need to thrive.

How to Maximize Your Break

Your lunch break needs to be a real break, so make plans with friends or co-workers. Plan to all leave together to go to a restaurant at a certain time. Put this break into your calendar so you never double-book yourself. A sports bar, for example, is a fun environment where you can all relax and talk about something other than your workplace with some good food. Walk to the restaurant if possible. If it’s far from the office, do some stretching before you make your way there.

 

If you and your friends are looking for a place to enjoy your lunch break, choose Buffalo Wild Wings. This beloved restaurant chain has 19 convenient sports bars throughout New York and Connecticut, including in Brooklyn, White Plains, and Stamford. Their Fast Break Lunch menu caters to business people looking for a faster and more personalized way to enjoy their lunch. The menu is available between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. with a “Pick 2” option and “Hand Spun Wings™” option. Make your reservation or find your nearest location on their website.
