Sometimes, work can be a stressful place. But now that summer has arrived, it’s the perfect opportunity to head outside for lunch, which can help you de-stress and refocus for the second half of your day.
Lunchtime is your personal time. It is also an opportunity to get away from the office. Simply changing your scenery and going for a walk before a nice, restful lunch can be a fantastic way to control work stress. If you need a new lunch spot, here are my top locations on main and north campus where you can enjoy a stress-free lunch.
These are just a few of my favorite ideas. The key is to find a place where you can have a little “me” time and unwind for a bit. Explore and find your own spot. Then share with your friends… or don’t. It’s okay to keep it all to yourself, too!
Mindful eating is flexible and can be done anywhere and anytime – even in the middle of a busy workday. Try some of the above steps to change your lunch routine. It will help you relax, nourish your body, and set you up for an energetic and productive afternoon.
