Women make wilk, big whop!

Lunch?

Be honest: do you actually take a lunch hour during the day?

Company cultures vary quite a bit of course; there are some where taking a break is encouraged. Many I’ve been at recently, in contrast, walk away from encouraging time away from one’s desk and as a result, lots of people eat at their desks.

I find that I just feel better by taking the lunch break I’m given, even if I eat at another time and use the hour to be away from technology for a while. I don’t do it every day, admittedly, but maybe I should.

I work through lunch eating a sandwich at my desk most days.

Lunchtime = sanity. I need that midday break.

I’ll eat at my desk and then go outside to read and take a walk after. Without that time, I get cranky.

Worst thing ever, to me: “working lunches.”

What is this then?
