in #CASE you missed it…  Most Workers Don’t Take A Lunch Break

Survey finds lunch breaks are a thing of the past

A new survey finds that 51% of American workers say they are unable to take a full lunch break. Because of this, 30% of workers say they wind up eating at their desk, with lack of time and a perception that there’s always too much work amongst the biggest reasons they eat at their desk. Shockingly, for 49% lunch is just a distraction from getting their work done.

And when workers do take breaks from the office, it usually isn't to eat.  The survey finds that 75% of workers use their break to take a walk. Reasons for taking that walk include:

To get exercise (63%)

To walk to clear their head (57%)

Enjoy the weather (51%)

De-stress (43%)

And it’s pretty apparent that break is necessary. When folks work through lunch they wind up feeling tired (44%), stressed (31%), overwhelmed (24%), exhausted (26%) and anxious (20%).

  • Do you often wind up eating lunch at your desk?
