5 Ways to Spend Your Lunch Hour
Posted by Kathy King /
SUCCESS Magazine recently asked several entrepreneurs from the Young Entrepreneur Council to share how they get more out of their lunch hour each day. Here are five of their answers.
1. Unplug completely. When you give yourself a break to clear your head, you’ll feel more energized and may get fresh ideas. Changing gears with a book, a funny podcast or inspiring interview can also help refresh your perspective, especially on hectic days.
2. Step away from the computer. While you eat, give yourself some quiet time to write down goals, update your to do list, or plan task completion. This can ensure you finish the day strong.
4. Meet someone new. Don’t turn down lunch or coffee with someone who wants to meet with you. Lunch is the perfect way to meet new contacts, discover opportunities, share your projects, or get someone else’s advice on a business problem.
5. Go outside.
Studies show that long periods of sitting can be harmful to your health. A little fresh air can go a long way, but add a short, brisk walk and you’ve got the perfect tonic for a powerful second act in the afternoon.
As always, feel free to share these great tips with your team, clients and colleagues.
