Reclaim your lunch hour and go swimming!


Statistics show that 82% of Brits no longer take a full lunch hour, and it’s not good news!

If you’re entitled to a lunch hour at work, what do you do with it? Do you spend the time getting a bit of exercise, stretching your legs or even doing something a bit more intense? Probably not, as it’s reported that 66% of workers eat at their desks and are in the habit of having a quick 25-minute lunch before cracking back on with work.

Regularly skipping your lunch break can affect your productivity and work relationships as well as your physical and mental health. Plus that’s valuable time you could be using to get active! If you’ve got a busy home life, then that hour lunch break is vital ‘you’ time that you may not get when you’re back at home with the kids and family. We want to help you reclaim your lunch hour, and we think that swimming might actually be one of the best activities to do with it.

Below is a link to the Brio website giving information on how to incorporate a quick swim into your working day.
