Q: What if I don't get a full 30-minute break?

But you’re still taking a break, right? Right???

A lot of people punch a time clock and have literally 30 minutes for lunch—or any other meal break. Still, it’s a break and the Box Lunch Lifestyle principles apply: decide how much of your 25 minutes (or whatever) is dedicated to eating and appreciating the best food available, and how much time you’ll invest in yourself.

Don’t cheat yourself on the YOU part. It’s easy to shortchange this, but don’t. Fifteen minutes is better, but five minutes is better than nothing. Doing the honest best you can that day is what matters.

We believe you can, and that you matter. So keep going.
