Hello fellow PA’s.
Are you all well and enjoying this rather ‘dramatic in terms of news’ summer? I hope you have some holiday to look forward to and that the sunshine has warmed your bones during at least one or two of your lunch breaks.
I’m a huge fan of a proper lunch break by the way. Plenty of studies show that if you have a proper break during the day (and by that I don’t mean a snatched sandwich, stuffed in your mouth at your desk over a quick glance at Facebook), your performance will be far more effective overall. In fact, if you never stop and don’t schedule in the odd ‘proper’ rest/break, you will end up becoming totally wired. Of course, the culture of working endlessly has become common practice but that doesn’t mean it’s healthy. Still, this is all for another time perhaps, for what I want to focus on today is something I was musing on over a salad and a cappuccino in a nice, sunny square one lunchtime last week during one of my most pleasant breaks.
