I always find it amazing how anxious everyone becomes while waiting for their appointed lunch hour to arrive. The impending excitement of actually getting a breath of fresh air, seeing the sunshine, checking-in with what is happening outside of the workplace walls all adds to the great build-up, and then…nothing. We run out for a quick bite and then head right back to the ball-and-chain–the computer. What “surfing” we can’t do during the workday consumes the time we should be using for that mental break away from the rat race.
I’m just as guilty, as my friends know, especially when I “pop” up online.
