This happens because, people who eat lunch at their office table tend not to be able to enjoy their food with a focus and a happy mood, because of the pressure from people passing by and the conditions and atmosphere around them that make their moods tend to be gloomy. This is different from those who usually take the time to eat lunch outside, they tend to look happy, even their level of happiness can reach the highest point if they can eat their lunch in a certain place. For example, on the beach which can provide the highest level of happiness followed by lunch in the garden by sitting under shady trees as shade.
Or taking the time to go home to eat lunch is also better for increasing happiness for employees. Even eating lunch on the bus or train can also boost the mood or mood in a better direction, compared to just ordering food from outside and eating it at the office. A study from the University of Sussex states that eating lunch at the office itself actually makes employees even more unhappy. Going to the canteen which is located near the office area also has almost no effect. So in essence, when you eat lunch, you should stay away from the work atmosphere. As quoted from a spokesperson for the Kingsmill bakery which is funding this research, enjoying a lunch with the warm sun hitting the face, and feeling the refreshing breeze will tend to return the focus of your mind and be ready to face all your work until the afternoon. .
The results of this study show that employees who enjoy lunch outside the office will experience an increase in happiness up to 17.04 points. Conversely, employees who only eat lunch in the office tend to experience a decrease in the level of happiness to reach 1.42 points. Apart from increasing your level of happiness, lunch outside the office is also associated with increased physical activity. By eating lunch outside means that you get out of your seat, move your legs and other limbs to avoid the risk of obesity.
