Grateful for the Break Room at Work
Wednesday, July 18, 2012
Have I ever mentioned how grateful I am that I work for a health care company... that actually cares about employee health?
A few months back, they cut down on the break room cookies and increased the amount of fresh fruit. Plus they added cucumbers and carrots.
It's the funniest thing to watch, when the news starts spreading that the delivery arrived. People start swarming towards the kitchen... The veggies last until lunch time, but the fruit is usually gone within 20 minutes. People complain if a meeting is scheduled for 9:00--because it means they might not get fruit.
There's yogurt on hand, too, and a selection of really reasonable sandwiches. GREAT for a day like today when I didn't get my act together in the morning, and really didn't want to order my usual salad, for some reason.
Usually I'm all about looking for the Deep Inner Meaning of why I might want to eat when not hungry, but today it was clear--I was really tired. The fact that my company cares enough to provide real food made it much easier to make good choices.
