Office Lunch Break Habits

I'm Asking: Do You Ever Miss Out on Your Lunch Break?

If your answer to this is yes, you're not alone. In a recent Monster.com survey, 60 percent of people said they don't always take their full lunch break while another seven percent don't take lunch at all. A director from Monster said that taking lunch is crucial to productivity and is important for one's health and mental well-being. It's all about time management and prioritizing your lunchtime ritual.

I admit, I'm not the best at taking my full lunch break, but I've started to try to set aside a little time to sit down somewhere other than my desk to eat my afternoon meal. It's like a breath of fresh air and a really good mental break. How about you — do you miss out on your lunch break?

I generally stay at the office for lunch because it is too far of a drive to go home everyday, but even when I do go home or go out for lunch, I get phone calls from co-workers who need help. It is VERY annoying!

I don't work during lunch, but I am starving for it by the time I get home! I eat breakfast at 7 am and don't get home until 12 or 12:30. Hungry monster!!

I work in a small office and often skip or shorten lunch because my boss makes it feel as if I'm shirking duties/stealing if I take a full lunch. I can take my full time, but always feel stressed when I do.
