Stress Relief Tool – Enjoy Your Lunch

Take the time to enjoy your lunch, reducing your stress in the process.

I know, another one of those “are you kidding me?” suggestions. What I mean by “enjoy your lunch” is do not skimp on the time you give yourself to eat properly. Wolfing down your lunch in seven minutes flat will only ramp up the stress that you bring with you from the first few hours of work. Instead, let your lunch be a time of relaxation. Eat slowly and focus on the smell, texture, and taste of the food. Put down the fork and knife down between bites to make that easier.1

As a bonus, you may find yourself eating fewer calories because you will give your stomach a chance to let your brain know you are full. And when you eat less, you may lose a few unwanted pounds.
