It's hard to take a break for lunch—to physically leave your desk, go out and eat with your co-workers—because a lot of us are overburden with work.
But as we've mention before, staying at your desk for lunch is bad for you. Stepping away from the desk is not only good for your physical health, it's good for your mental health, as well.
Now there's a new movement to help workers get back on track. Every Wednesday during the summer workers are encouraged to take a collective lunch break.
The Energy Project created Take Back Your Lunch in order for you to "step away from your desk, turn off your phone (if you dare) and commit to a lunch hour of renewal. Go to the park with friends, take a jog, read a book. You'll be re-energized and refueled to tackle the rest of the day."
Sounds great. Who wants to join me for lunch Wednesday?
