Hey Boise, It’s Time to Take Back Your Lunch!

TBYL Graphic_BlogRemember how great it was to be a kid? You didn’t have the responsibilities of an adult, you could eat whatever you wanted, and you got a lunchtime recess! Well, we can’t take away the responsibilities and we don’t recommend reverting to your childhood diet, but we can help with the lunchtime recess!

PacificSource Health Plans, 94.9 The River, and Boise Parks and Rec have joined together to present Take Back Your Lunch! Every Wednesday (starting today) in April and May, we’re encouraging people to ditch their desk and take back your lunch hour at Capitol Park from noon until 1:00 pm.

Take Back Your Lunch ConceptWe’ve all worked through our lunch hour, and while you might feel like you’re the employee of the year, it’s actually really unhealthy to sit at your desk for long periods of time. And, studies have shown that a mid-day workout can boost productivity, energy, and creativity. So we’re asking anyone in the downtown area to join us for lunch, take a walk through Capitol Park with Misty from 94.9 The River, and enjoy some healthy snacks and water. We’re sure that the people who join us will go back to work with a little less stress and a lot more energy!

We’re challenging YOU to channel your inner child and Take Back Your Lunch. Your lunch hour is yours, so make sure to enjoy it!

Infographic: 33 Ideas to Stay Healthy at Work

Ideas for Healthy work_blog

Working in an office setting can be a wellness destroyer. For most of us, we sit too long, we stress constantly, and we eat garbage all day long (stress induced Gummi Bears are my personal Kryptonite). But it doesn’t have to be that way. Since I work in an office, and routinely make unhealthy decisions at work, I decided to ask a boatload of my coworkers how they stay healthy at work. Turns out, my pals had some incredible ideas, and I felt the need to share them with the world. All of these ideas came directly from PacificSource employees (aka “my work homies”). I hope this sparks some ideas for how you can live a healthy life during the daily grind.

If you have more ideas, please share them in our comments. And as always, please share this infographic with anyone looking for a healthy boost at work. Thanks for checking it out!
