12 World Records You Can Break During Lunch | Infographic

Recent Articles




When midday rolls around, you could spend your lunch hour grabbing a sandwich at the corner deli and then pretending to work at your desk.

Or, you could break a few world records.

I'm not talking the kind of world records that require years of intense training — unless that training was a childhood of stuffing your face with pizza and duct taping your little siblings to walls. (Hey, a name in the world record book is a name in the world record book.)

To help coax out your competitive side and bring a little fun to the office, Chair Office created the infographic below with 12 world records you can break during your lunch hour. How many can you break?

Lunch breaks are the saviour of the working day. For one wonderful hour every day, we can stop thinking about deadlines and targets, and use the time instead to grab a bite to eat, read some news, and watch funny videos about cats (guilty!).





However, in 2011 BUPA discovered that only 30% of employees take an hour for lunch, even though a minimum of 20 minutes rest is a legal requirement for those working for six hours or more (According to the 1998 Working Time Regulations).

BUPA also discovered that more than a third of employees experienced pressure from their managers to work through their lunches, with heavy workloads also being to blame.

Despite this, other studies have suggested that taking a break can help promote productivity within the workplace. It’s not difficult to see why is it? Overworked and stressed staff will lead to negative working environment, because overworked employees are unhappy employees.

Alternatively, given time to catch up on news, eat some food and ‘forget’ about work, will leave staff feeling refreshed and de-stressed – ultimately leading to a better workplace atmosphere and better productivity.

​Researchers even found that letting your mind wander is an important part of the creative thinking process.





So, with that in mind, we’re encouraging  you to make the most of your lunch break this week – and what better way to do that then by breaking a world record?!
