Take Back Your Lunch Break at the Lake of the Ozarks

The 3rd Friday in June every year is designated as Take Back Your Lunch Break Day. This year it falls on June 21 and our Lake of the Ozarks Mexican restaurant is the perfect place to observe the holiday!

Take the Time to Enjoy Lunch
Studies have shown that not taking breaks, especially a lunch break, during the workday can greatly decrease your overall work performance. Even if you feel like you're getting more done by grabbing a quick bite at your desk, in the long run, your productivity may very well go down. 

That's why Take Back Your Lunch Break Day is a wonderful reminder to get away from work for a short while and enjoy something delicious and nourishing to refuel you for the rest of the day. In case your boss needs more convincing (or perhaps, you need to be convinced) here are some ways that taking the time for a lunch break can benefit both you and your job. 

  • Increased productivity - Stepping away from work helps you gain focus and gives you an energy boost that can help to avoid a mid-afternoon slump. 
  • Improved mental well-being - Time away from thinking about work lets you get away from the concentration and stress for a much-needed mental break.
  • Creativity boost - When you come back from a break you'll have a fresh perspective to tackle any projects that you may have been stuck on. 
  • More time for healthy habits - An actual lunch break gives you the time to make healthy dining choices as opposed to grabbing something full of sugar and preservatives out of the vending machine. You might even have time to squeeze in a brisk walk or short yoga session.  

So you see, taking back your lunch break instead of working straight through it is good for you. Make it even more fun by inviting some friends or co-workers to join you for lunch at Mexicali Blues in Osage Beach. You're all going to enjoy our incredible lunch menu at the Lake of the Ozarks so much, you'll be anxious to come back again for dinner too! (Maybe even Happy Hour as well!)
