Get Out of the Office on your Lunch Break

Even in the age of remote work, many people find themselves tethered to their workstations throughout the total work day. Whether you just don’t feel right about stepping away from a project or want your boss to notice your efforts, studies have shown that staying at the office during your lunch break actually lessens your productivity level.

Here are the compelling reasons why you should take your lunch break away from the workplace (and choose Y.O. Ranch Steakhouse!)

Eating Out Helps You Stay in the Lunch Zone

Many people use their lunch break as an extension of their work day. Eating lunch at your desk makes it tempting to check your phone for emails or continue that time-consuming project.

Working hard is important, but lunch breaks are designed to help you maintain a healthy work, life balance. Your lunch break should help you turn off the corporate mindset and enjoy some time to yourself. 

Take a moment to order your favorite lunch from Y.O. Ranch Steakhouse and improve your overall mental health. 


Employees Who Eat Out Have a Healthy Bottom Line

When your employees are encouraged to take their lunch at a nearby restaurant, it shows that your company is doing its best to give its employees a great quality of life. 

After all, if your employees are comfortable with stepping away from their desks at lunch, it only shows that they feel valued in your company and that your business can afford for people to take much-needed time off.


Eating at Your Desk is Bad for Company Morale

Studies show that people who work through their lunch break run the risk of:

  • Losing their creativity
  • Reduced company morale
  • Suffering from burnout that decreases productivity

According to an article from Forbes, about 20 percent of employees worry about their boss thinking badly of them for taking a lunch break. This anxiety leads to reduced morale, severely hurting your bottom line.  Here’s a novel idea…Show your employees that they matter and schedule an office event at Y.O. Ranch Steakhouse!
