Really?? Lunch at your desk everyday??

I asked that question to a room of about 40 people…more than half said, “Yes, I have lunch at mydesk everyday.” By the end of our workshop, 15 had committed to break that habit AND to hold each other accountable. One manager admitted that he had taught his staff when they could catch him…at his desk, “gotta minute??” at lunch…hummm, not much of a break all day! One extremely busy long term nurse leader said she had made it a self-care rule to get off her unit for at least 20 minutes for lunch. As she said, “If I can do it, anybody can do it! I trust my staff.”   No more excuses!
