Now that the ski season is over, my colleagues and I have taken a big collective sigh of relief for making it through a long and busy six months. I’ve already noticed the office pace has slowed down a bit. People aren’t working such long hours, stressing about deadlines or eating lunch at their desks.
One way I’ve been taking advantage of this time of year is to take a 30 minute walk outside in the California sun over my lunch break. It’s be soooo nice to be able to get my body moving in the middle of the day, soak up some Vitamin D and have a few moments to clear my head.
When I lived in a city, my quiet time was usually in a small park surrounded by loud busses whizzing by and now I have an entire forest with walking paths, sandy beaches and absolute quiet except for a few birds singing.
I can’t think of a better way to spend my lunch break! Do you take breaks during your work day? How do you spend them?
