Lunch time. Perfect time.

#Blog3                                                                                                                          Dated: 18/10/2013

         Lunch times can be boring to some, time to socialize for some and even works as a power break for some! Isn't it amazing how a particular hour that is available to the whole world without any bias have different effect on each of their lives?
Well, I wanna share a few things that must be done on a lunch break:

1. Leave your desk (Gluing your eyes to the computer screen even while eating? That's like a mental torture for me. And there are many dangers associated when we sit for too long. So, walking to another room to have lunch is Important)

2. Go Outside (This is what I love doing the most. Stepping outside the office just to go to the washroom to have a look on the mirror is very refreshing for me. I know that's funny but I love it. Go out and have juice with your friends. Sun rays even helps you with Vitamin D. Lol.)

3. Exercise (You can't literally exercise of course. That'll be funny. But walking up and down the stairs can help.Steve Cooper, editor-in-chief of Hitched Magazine, says he runs during his lunch break every day. "The sweat, the fatigue, the endorphin rush all give me a boost in the afternoon and into the evening," he says. That's like amazing. It even sharpens your mind. Trust me.)

4. Read (Reading is a good habit. I love reading. Not the books like your textbooks or anything, of course. That'll make me have a trauma. You can read magazines, watch good movies like an Inspiration Overload. Sounds funny but it does work.)

5. Eat healthy (The food that goes inside our body gives us strength to work for the whole day. And a recent study even proves that people who have a regular healthy diet are 25 percent more likely to be high performers. But I don't mind having Mc Donald's French fries once a month. That'll be refreshing.)

6. Don't Over-eat ( Sometimes we think - 'Why do we feel sleepy sometimes after having lunch?' I understand its your favorite food and I understand you can't resist. But ladies and gentlemen, keep this thing in mind: Over-eating reduces your blood sugar and that will make you feel tired and even depressed. Well, that's actually depressing. Avoid it.)

7. Grab lunch with Friends or Colleagues (Eating alone is a real bad idea. You can even use this time as 'Socializing time'. You can build relationships and have fun.)

8. Sometimes lunch with Enemies too! (Successful people really don't have the time to hold guilt or bear grudges. They forgive and forget. They play safe. Simple.)

9. Music Music Music (Turn on the radio or your music player and listen to the music you love. Avoid ear plugs. It refreshes and recharges you. It decreases our tension and stress level. You can work more effectively after that.)


10. Take Naps (I love taking power naps when nobody's noticing me that much. People around me might think that I'm tired or didn't have a good sleep the previous night but that's not true. Our body needs an afternoon nap. Atleast for seven minutes. Just imagine having Nap rooms at your office? As, It's not exactly how many hours we are sitting at our desks, but how present are we when we're there.)

Try doing the above things and you'll surely be petrified. Thank me later, okay?
