Did you know that more than 65% of people stay at their desks for lunch when at work? This means that there is a trend of more than half of Americans dining alone at their office on a daily basis. The New York Times and European Prospective Investigation of Cancer Organization revealed that eating alone is not ideal for overall health and has actually been associated with getting less nutrients from your meals.
To make matters worse, the “sad desk lunch” contributes to the terrible habit of sitting all day at work. Research shows that 86 percent of full-time American professionals sit in their chairs for the entire work day. Now, many people understand the idea that this lonely lunch epidemic has several disadvantages in terms of negative health impact in the short-term, but it’s important to think about your health long-term as well. This terrible sitting habit might increase the possibilities of getting heart disease, type 2 diabetes, breast cancer and colon cancer. With so many health detriments, it’s not surprising that sitting all the time has been compared to smoking. Yikes!
On top of that, a solitary lunch is a wasted opportunity to socialize. Gallup polling shows that workers who socialize are more likely to be productive so getting out for lunch is not only good for employees, it’s just plain good business all around.
