Do you take your lunch break at work or are you guilty of eating at the desk whilst picking up calls and replying to emails?
It’s not easy to squeeze in a lunch break, but taking a break can increase your productivity and can set you up for a great afternoon.
Each lunch I try to stop my instinct of ‘there’s too much to do’ or ‘one more email’ and tell myself to take a break. Stepping outside, going for a walk, absorbing natural light and breathing in some fresh air is essential. Stress levels and tension instantly drop and when I get back to office I am ready to take on the afternoon.
It has been proven that the ambient sound of a café can be the most beneficial sound level for creativity. So I wanted to start a monthly blog post to firstly, encourage you to take your lunch breaks, secondly to suggest my favourite local independent cafes and finally to help you on your way to a proactive afternoon.
Keep your eyes peeled on my blog in January, when I will be adding my first instalment of my Coffee Shop Corners blog post.
