Working remotely? Try these 3 things in your lunch break


There are many advantages to working remotely: more time to have with those that you love; not feeling like you are wasting your life stuck in traffic on the daily commute to and from the office; even being able to work in your PJs (as long as you do not have a conference call booked). However, the main advantage is being able to eat what you want to eat and when, as well as being able to fill your lunch break with whatever activity you want to fill it with without the hassle of being amongst others or having to conform in any way.

Listen to an audiobook

If you do not think that you have the time to read in your busy lifestyle, then perhaps you should try listening to an audiobook. If you are working remotely, you may find that it is a very pleasant way of spending your lunch break and can be a lot more uplifting than listening to the news or having the radio or TV on in the background.

There are many different types of audiobooks available to download straight to your cell phone, and they can range from anything between fiction, non-fiction, or educational, depending on what type of thing interests you. Listening to any of these with your eyes closed or while eating your lunch will give you a much-improved break from your work as it will take your mind away from whatever you have been doing and open it up to something new.

Play short games

Playing games is, for many, a very welcome distraction, and if you have some time while you are eating your lunch, you could try taking your mind off of your work and immersing yourself in a game or two. It is best when you are limited on time to only think about the short games rather than get yourself too involved in a long game only to have to put it down and go back to work before you feel that you have accomplished anything.

These games can be ones such as casino games. There are plenty of different types of casino games available, from slots (or pokies) to card games like poker. However, before you venture onto these sites, you may find reading casino guides very beneficial, especially if it is the first time that you have played in an online casino.

Cook yourself something amazing

One of the main perks of working remotely is that you have full access to your kitchen when it comes to lunchtime. This means that you could spend your time cooking yourself something truly amazing to munch on rather than having to eat curly sandwiches or whatever you can grab off of the local food stall or from the local supermarket. It also means that you have the opportunity to eat a lot more healthily too.

All you have to do is make sure that you have the correct ingredients the evening before, or if you have time, knock it up the evening before so that all you have to do is warm it up in your lunch break or if it is a cold dish, assemble it before you sit down to eat.
