I've long believed that breaks are essential for a productive workday, which is why G and I have always made an effort to take an hour away from our desks for lunch, whenever possible. Recently though, our entire office has gotten into the habit of ordering-in or picking up lunch, which we inevitably bring back to our desks to eat. It's not a healthy habit, but it's also no coincidence that my recent decision to finally break this pattern and head out for lunch (in a springtime dress, no less) coincided with the end of one of the longest cold streaks in L.A. history.
This month, we're all making an effort to get out more and take advantage of L.A.'s beautiful weather. While we're celebrating Pi Day in the office with a pie bake-off (and G's brilliant contribution: a pizza), we'll be topping it off with a walk around the block before diving back into inboxes and projects. It's amazing what just a few minutes of fresh air (and a de-caff iced coffee) can do.
