Do you often go out from your company during the lunch break?

Some people just don't like staying in the office all the time. So they need to take a break during lunch time. They like going out and breathe the fresh air. Although the time is short, but they still want to leave the office for a while. Are you one of these people?

I know it's important to take a break. If you stay in the office during the lunch break, perhaps you can feel relaxed anyway.

I like to go out for lunch at lunch time, it makes me feel very comfortable when breathing the fresh air outside the building after the working almost just sitting near the computer for nearly 4 hours in the morning. The moment when the guys of our company walking outside to have a lunch together seems to be the most funny and interesting time in our working day, we can talk something freely except work at the time, envn make some jokes. But it is a bit pity that there are not so much restaurants near our company, so we always don't have so much choice about where to eat when we have our lunch outside.

Hi, youless. I was always one of those employees that needed a breathe of fresh air during my lunch break. It helped me to get outside if only just briefly. Now that I am a stay at home mom, I find myself occasionally needing to be left only locked up in a room by myself.... soaking in a tub of bubbles. Hee

enjoy the fresh air and nature - I love to enjoy the fresh air and nature. I love to go to the country to enjoy the fresh air on warm days.
Hello youless. I love to enjoy the fresh air and nature, especially when I have my days off. I love to ride to the country for fresh air and enjoy the nature in the country, but after lunch during normal working days, I do not go out of school because I need to have some time for a nap to gain some energy to work in the afternoon and evening. Enjoy your company life, youless.

I don't think it is fit to my habbit,because my company is very close to my home,and we don't take lunch to my company,I often go home to make my meal,and when I finish my lunch, I will have a nap at home,and I think it is good for my work.

We often do, as most of us seldom pack lunch to work. Moreover there are food-stores, eateries and restaurants within walking distance, so we will take the opportunity to do some walking. It's also good to eat somewhere away from work!

Perhaps it is too cold outside so that you prefer to stay at home.

hello youless usually when that i am working at my part-time job, i will make myself a sandwich and grab some potato chips or something for my lunch. somedays when that i work, i might just grab myself a granola bar and some fruit of some kind or a yogurt cup. then sometimes on Friday's we will all order take out Chinese food or we will go out for a little while to eat lunch at the Chinese restaurant. and i always take my own soda or whatever that i want to drink for the day with me as well. i wouldn't be able to afford to go out to eat everyday at lunch time while that i was at work. i can make four or five sandwiches for the week, and then have leftover cheese and lunchmeat. lol and every time that i go out to eat, i do not care if it is at breakfast, lunch or dinner time, i always find that i over eat, and i leave the restaurant feeling too full. lol take care and have a beautiful day today!

I used to work on the fourth floor in my office building and I used to get cabin fever, even in a 15 minute break I would actually walk down the stairs (I hardly ever used the lifts) and just stand outside for some fresh air then walk back up again, that was my exercise too. I was so glad to get out, lunch times I would go for a walk and fortunately we had a park nearby so in the Summer I would walk to the park and eat my lunch on the grass, but the worst bit was having to pack up and go back inside! I hate air conditioning as well because that really dries me out and in the winter and it's cold and wet it's harder to go out, and most offices you cannot open the windows because of the air conditioning.

When the canteed at the back of my office is close... i have no choice but to go outside and eat my lunch... but i would have to walk for 3 minutes to do that... and it could be very hot outside... i don't really have a specific time to go to lunch... so being late back to work is not a problem...

I usually prefer staying in the office so that I can take short naps or surf the internet during the rest of the break time. And also, when it is summer, I get headaches if I leave the cold office room, get exposed to the summer heat then back into the cold office again.

I don't stay in the office at the time of break. I prefer visiting to a nearby roadside cafe. Over there I meet with other colleagues and I prefer talking with them over different things. This makes me feel relaxed.
