Take Back Your Lunch

I recently moved to a job that gave me time for lunch, or rather, a job where people took their lunch hour outside the office more often than they took lunch at their desk. It’s a liberating feeling, to leave the office. Unfortunately, I work in a restaurant dead zone, forcing me to make my lunch, which in any case has its own pleasures. Everyone should take this hour of the day away from their desk. Most work can wait. World productivity will not slow down. In fact, output probably increases, because you won’t substitute that lost lunch hour with multiple short trips to twitter, facebook, et al.
