How long do you take for lunch?

Ilise BenunAn hour? Half hour? 10 minutes?

This came up on one of my Marketing Group calls yesterday and it got me wondering.

I work from home so I make my lunch while I make breakfast, then it’s ready when I’m ready — at which point I usually take 15 minutes between calls and/or projects to eat — but I never eat at my desk. Always in the kitchen. And I try not to read while I’m eating, although sometimes I sneak in the crossword puzzle.

Other times, I’ll take a longer, one-hour-ish break to eat and walk Charlie and clear my mind so I can go back for another chunk of work. But only when I have the time to do that.

What about you? What are you doing for lunch today?

    Lunch? Although there are the rare occasions that I to take a proper lunch, for the most part I either go without or eat while I’m working. I know that it’s not “the” thing to do, and I am one that preaches to others NOT to eat at their desks. But, you gotta do what you gotta do. I do have to say though that I don’t really mind it because it gives me the opportunity to knock off a bit early on any given day without feeling guilty. Ha!
