4 tips for eating lunch at your desk
- Just because you’re at your desk, don’t rush things, Eat slowly, chew and enjoy each mouthful. It can be hard, but try and just focus on what you’re eating, not text messages or emails.
- Don’t hunch over your desk reading or checking papers. Aside from the risk of making a mess, if you sit up straight you’ll digest your food better.
- Don’t play videos or look at your computer – we eat more when we’re distracted according to a study by the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.
- Your desk can be a hotbed of germs – not least because many of us drop food and don’t clear it up when eating on the go. Things like phones and keyboards harbor a lot of germs. Use a cleansing wipe before you sit down to eat and clean up after yourself.
