Best Lunch Spots in Denver: The Importance of Midday Lunch


October 18, 2017

You’ve definitely heard that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. The importance of breakfast and getting off to a good start is certainly true, but lunch is also extremely important. Your midday fuelup is crucial for a variety of reasons, and keeps your mind and body running at optimal pace to finish out the workday. It’s certainly not always easy to be able to take a lunch break, but here are the reasons why you should!

Eat The Right Foods

You’ll often find people who skip lunch due to them being too busy or they’re trying to cut calories and lose weight. The latter theory almost never works, and skipping a meal wrecks havoc on your body. When you do make it out to lunch or eat the office, make sure your lunch is packed with nutritious, healthy food. Your nutrition will determine how productive you are the rest of the day. While we all love a good greasy meal every now and then, it’s best to skip that option for lunch.

Eating at midday, several hours after breakfast, allows your body to re-energize and raises blood sugar levels for better focus and concentration after lunch. Your boss will certainly enjoy that! Lunch can relieve yourself from feeling sluggish and feel refreshed and ready for your afternoon workload. Midday fuel also keeps your metabolism going compared to dropping off if you wait several hours between eating meals.

Make DJ’s Your Lunch Spot

Research has shown that moving to a cafe or restaurant for lunch improves your creativity and thinking. The sounds of a cafe have been proven to be benefit your creative juices, and pushes you out of your comfort zone and propels your “out of the box” thinking. Aside from the noise level, working at a cafe or just taking your lunch break at a cafe allows for a fresh, new location. A change of location renews your focus and can get you to work on your to do list more quickly than if you’re stuck in the same workspace all day.

Take Your Lunch Break

So many people find themselves skipping their lunch break and it’s not a good thing! By not taking a break, you’re actually reducing your capability to be creative. Your brain is exhausted and you’ll find yourself not clearly thinking and making more mistakes than the norm. It’s so important that you take your lunch break to do a refresh on your mindfulness.
