Refresh your desk
Although you don’t want to spend your whole lunch break cleaning, it is a good idea to spend 5 minutes clearing up your workspace.

Give your eyes a rest
It’s a known fact that staring at a computer screen for too long will undoubtedly make you feel tired or even give you a headache, so on your lunch break, it is important to give those eyes a rest and take a break from the computer screen.
Take a walk
Sitting at your desk for too long each day without stretching your legs once in a while can have a negative impact on your health, so it is important to go outside and get some fresh air and give yourself some exercise. Taking a walk is an excellent way to refresh your mind and thoughts before starting the second half of your hard-working day, it even releases endorphins which triggers feelings of happiness within your brain.
