The Faculty/Staff Wellness Team Announces Our Most Recent Shout OUT...

2019 Carleton Pizza Party

Congrats to everyone who took a break and joined in on the Summer Staff Picnic on June 18th.  Fun was had by all.  It’s good for us all to take a break from time to time.

A recent study proving the health benefits of taking a break! New Study Shows Correlation Between Employee Engagement And The Long-Lost Lunch Break. There are many research-backed health, wellness and performance benefits of taking breaks. Here are just a few examples of the benefits of regular breaks:

  • Increased productivity - Employees gain focus and energy after stepping away from their desks. A lunch break can help prevent an unproductive, mid-afternoon slump.
  • Improved mental well-being - Employees need time to recharge. Taking some time away from the desk to go for a quick walk or enjoy a healthy lunch helps release some of this stress and improves mental well-being.
  • Creativity boost - Taking a break can give employees a fresh perspective on challenging projects. It’s hard for employees to develop new ideas or solutions when they’ve been looking at the same thing all day. A lunch break will most certainly help get those creative juices flowing.
  • More time for healthy habits -  Regular breaks, including a lunch break, give employees time to practice healthy habits in the workplace, they can use break times to make a healthy lunch, exercise, meditate, or engage in a self-care activity!
