Would you spend a few minutes each day practising mindfulness each lunchtime at work if someone told you you’d be more productive in the afternoon?
I’m hoping you answered yes to this?
I have been very strict at work since I changed jobs. I book out 30 minutes of my diary each day to eat and practise mindfulness techniques whilst listening to music. The canteen is full of chattering people and I cannot stand to sit in there as the noise makes my head spin,but when I pop on headphones 🎧 I love it. I get totally caught up in the moment. I savour my food taking it real slow and mindfully eating.
I also watch other people eat, examine what they eat, look out of the window and watch nature in full effect. I don’t day dream and I don’t spend my lunch break on my phone. Maybe I might update my FB page but nothing more?
Before this latest fibro attack brought me to my knees and I had to step away from my job I never really had a lunch break. Since I started to have one I cannot believe how much more productive I feel in the afternoon.
Try eating mindfully; savour every mouthful of your lovely healthy organic food, take your time. It can take me 15 minutes to eat my lunch minimum. You will walk away so chilled out!
