NATIONAL MAKE LUNCH COUNT DAY – April 13

 

NATIONAL MAKE LUNCH COUNT DAY – April 13

NATIONAL MAKE LUNCH COUNT DAY

On April 13th, we have an opportunity to break a trend that has been occurring around the country by joining National Make Lunch Count Day.

According to a recent study commissioned by TGI Fridays, the majority of U.S. workers suffer from “FOLO” – otherwise known as a “Fear of Lunching Out.” Many workers eat lunch at their desk at least twice a week (73%) while one-third have lunch at their desk every day of the week. Don’t fear lunching out any longer!

Taking a break from the workday improves productivity. That includes taking a lunch break. Leaving the office or even your desk for 20-30 minutes to refuel also reinvigorates your creative juices. Our brains and bodies need the daily break. When you return, you’ll be refreshed and ready for new ideas and approaches to whatever your job throws your way. 

The observance is here to remedy FOLO and help American workers increase their creativity and productivity.

HOW TO OBSERVE #NationalMakeLunchCountDay

Break the cycle of FOLO. Get away from your desk. Join your co-workers and enjoy a real lunch with stimulating conversation. Share your favorite ways to make lunch count and promote them with your peers. Don’t just do it today, do it every day! Use #NationalMakeLunchCount to share on social media.

NATIONAL MAKE LUNCH COUNT DAY HISTORY

TGI Fridays founded National Make Lunch Count Day in 2016 to remind American workers to get away from their desks for lunch.  

The Registrar at National Day Calendar proclaimed the day to be observed on April 13th, annually.
