Lunch Advocate: Daniel H. Pink

In his book WHEN: The Scientific Secrets of Perfect Timing, Mr. Pink offers this advice:

“…if you’re concerned about the peril of the afternoon, start taking more seriously the often-maligned and easily dismissed meal called lunch.” (p. 64)

“…it’s time we paid more attention to lunch, because social scientists are discovering it’s far more important to our performance than we realize.” (p. 65)

Some studies, Mr. Pink says, show lunch-eaters were better able to deal with stress and generally had more energy not just for the day, but that recharging at lunch can pay off up to a year later.

What’s not to love about that?
