Lunch or tea breaks are more or less the same at most workplaces around the world; eat, talk a bit here and there or pass the time on your computer. If you are fed up of this routine which seems even more monotonous than your work, then break the rut and add some more fun to your breaks. Check out these ways to make your break at the workplace more interesting.

1. Organize potpourri lunches

A very good way to spice things up is by organizing potpourri lunches at the workplace. Each person at the office or in your team gets any one item to eat the next day. So you have a sort of buffet with people bringing and sharing different food. If there is a terrace or a nearby park where you can spread blankets and sit with your coworkers, then nothing like it.

2. Get out of your office

Just stand up and get out of the office premises. Being in the same environment for a long time can make anyone feel bored. You need to get fresh air, a change in the environment and some exercise for your body. Explore the areas around your workplace so that the monotony of your workplace doesn’t set in and you feel fresher post break.

3. Organize games in the office

If your workplace has an activity room, then you don’t need an more advice about how to add spice to your breaks. If there is no activity room as such, then request your seniors to provide a table or corner for keeping board and card games that employees can relax with during breaks.

4. Make friends

If your office is huge and you have many employees whom you know only on a hi-hello basis, then interact and get to know them better. Make a new friend at the workplace and you never know, these new friends could be the reason for your interesting breaks thereon.

5. Pursue your hobby or interest

Just because you work full time doesn’t mean you turn a blind eye to or give up your passions and hobbies. You can probably bring a book to read, your ongoing knitting project, exercise a bit, practice your singing in a quiet corner, or do anything that you like to.

6. Take a power nap or meditate

They are called power naps for a reason. Taking a short nap of say 15-20 minutes helps the body re-energize and refresh so that the work you do post break is done with renewed vigor. You could also catch a quite corner of the office to meditate and calm your nerves.
