According to a Monster study in 2010, 32% of people took a lunch break "only if I'm not too busy", and 7% denied eating lunch at all. Here are some tips for what successful people do during their lunch break.
Move. Many exercise studios offer lunchtime classes. Take a walk to a nearby studio and burn some calories during your break. You can also take a brisk walk or walk up and down a few flights of stairs. Getting your blood flowing is a great way to get your mental juices flowing and focused for the second half of your day.
Eat light. A big high-carb or high-fat lunch will lead to a crash in the afternoon. Include some protein and complex carbs like veggies, fruits, and fiber filled whole grains. Avoid snacks like candies and chocolates during lunch, which may give you a part time energy boost, but leave you crashing shortly after. Opt for fresh fruit, low sodium un-buttered popcorn, low-sugar Greek yogurt, a handful of nuts, or veggies and hummus dip.
Drink. A big glass of cold water can really refresh you and waken up your mental processes to take on the rest of your day. Even a small dose of a caffeinated beverage may help to increase your alertness.
Take B vitamins. Taking a B complex supplement in a liquid form during lunch can boost your energy levels for a vitalized end to your work day.
