Warm weather, festivities and a few extra hours of sunlight make summer a favourite time of the year for most people.

However, the sad reality is that most office workers spend about 90 per cent of their days indoors. In fact, it’s even become the norm to skip a lunch break, with one study showing that nearly four million Australian workers miss out on their lunch break regularly.

Don’t let this be you.

Follow these five simple ways to make the most out of your office lunch break this summer.

1) Enjoy a workout

Summer is the ideal time of the year to get outdoors, get some sun and get in shape. So, why not sneak in a workout during your lunch break?

Exercising during your lunch break can be a great way to switch off, boost your mood and improve your afternoon productivity.

Take a midday walk, go for a dip at one of Sydney’s stunning outdoor pools or hit a local park for a peaceful jog.

2) Catch up with friends

Your lunch break is a fantastic opportunity to socialise with friends.

Get organising and plan a lunch date – head up to one of Sydney’s rooftop garden bars, soak up the sun and, if you’re lucky, enjoy top-notch views of the gorgeous city skyline.

3) Go for ice-cream

Seriously, what’s better than ice cream on a warm summer’s day?

Hit up a popular gelato bar like Messina for a freshly churned, frosty treat. You could also use the opportunity as a shameless ploy to bump up your office popularity by bringing some back to your teammates.

4) Unplug

Switch off your mobile phone and take a lunchtime detox – kick off your shoes and read a book in Hyde Park, or take a short nap under a shady tree by the harbour. After all, a lunch break should be a real break from work, not just a change of scenery.

5) Move your meetings outdoors

There’s nothing worse than spending a lovely summer’s day in a stuffy conference room.

If you can’t get out for lunch, try holding your meetings outside or change up the pace by adopting walking meetings. It can be an easy way to enjoy the balmy weather without taking a break from the job.
