6 things to do on your lunch break that will change the game

Sponsored 30/03/2017

It's so easy to get stuck at your desk the whole day, forgetting to take all or even part of your lunch break, so we've teamed up with KitKat to bring you 6 easy ways to change your workdays forever....

Picture this, you're running late to work, you forget the lunch you spent all night prepping, you arrive at work in a sh*t mood and then spend your entire lunch break snacking on fake-plastic-tasting cheese and crackers from the work vending machine...

Yup. You’re not a human unless you’ve had a day like this at least once in your life. But, there are plenty of productive things you can do during your break that can help lower your stress levels and make the second half of your day feel like a breeze!

1. Do yoga

Particularly good on a stressful day, yoga is a perfect break activity because it can be done almost anywhere. If you don't have a studio or gym nearby, just grab your mat and find an empty office or conference room to use. If it's nice out, find a good spot outdoors, and get some sun while you're at it!

3. Read a book or a magazine

Allow yourself some much-deserved downtime, and pick up a book. Any type of reading is great, but a physical copy of a book is ideal so that your eyes get a break from screens.

4. EAT!

This may seem super obvs, but some days can be really busy and you'll resort to scoffing your face while you work. Stepping away from the sh*t storm and giving yourself a breather can make the rest of the day seem way more doable! The saying, "have a break, have a KitKat" has literally never been more relevant, plus sciencesays that eating chocolate can actually help reduce stress. YES SCIENCE.

5. Call the 'rents

Use the lunch hour to step outside and catch up with family and friends, especially if you live in different cities and don't get to see each other often.

6. Go shopping!

Yes, we said it! Shopping on your lunch break means you can tick stuff off your list, but with limited time, your spending is also limited.

1. Go to the gym

Join a gym near your office and get in some exercise on your lunch hour. That way, when you get home after a long day, you don't have to feel guilty about not having the energy to do a workout! If you don't want to join a gym, then try a quick run or bike ride.
