How many days until National Make Lunch Count Day?


An opportunity breaks a trend that has been happening across the country by participating in the National Make Lunch Count Day.

On National Make Lunch Count Day, April 13, it is a reminder for all of us “Don't skip lunch”. Whether you eat a salad, a sandwich or a smoothie, make sure you're getting an energy boost. Whatever, Brunch is tempting, but honestly, it's not Easter every day. That's where National Make Lunch Count Day begins. Somewhere between breakfast, now considered the "most important" meal of the day, and dinner, the last meal of the day (yes, we used the word "reeat"); lying is the wrong lunch wrong. You know - what you're eating right at your desk. If you are lucky, sometimes it's not until 3pm before office workers realize they've missed it. Remember that there is still half a day left.

Some reasons for National Make Lunch Count Day being loved

  • It's a window to the world

Lunch is the most frequent meal away from home, and as such, we are often around a different crowd. One way we can really make our lunches enjoyable is to find ways to enjoy it with the people around us.

  • When breakfast gets troubles, lunch saves the day

We've all had mornings where we were in too much of a hurry to eat before we took off. If it weren't for our lunch break, there's no way we'd get through those days. Lunch can be considered as a much needed lunch to pick me up when there is no time for breakfast.

  • It parted for the day

You'll have a hard time finding a worker who doesn't look forward to their lunch break! After a break from the morning fun, lunch can be seen as a much-needed break from the day that will get us through to the end.

History of National Make Lunch Count Day

Created by TGI Fridays in 2016, National Make Lunch Count Day aims to erase the boring lunch and get people away from work and into restaurants to enjoy their lunch. The national restaurant chain did a study showing that Americans suffer from what they call "FOLO" - "lunch fear", which they say "can make employees feel unproductive and unproductive." capable of being creative." They believe that too many people are bringing lunch from home, eating alone, eating at their table ("eating al desko"), and feeling like they don't have enough time to eat at restaurants. So TGI Fridays has launched National Make Lunch Count Day and with it a new lunch menu and instant mobile payment options. For their first anniversary, they also gave out hundreds of $25 e-gift cards so more people could pull out of their FOLO.

According to the statics of a recent study of TGI Fridays, almost US workers are got “FOLO”, also called as “Fear of Lunch”. Many people eat lunch at their desks twice a week (approximately 73%). Don't be afraid to have lunch anymore!

Taking a break during the workday improves productivity. That includes lunch breaks. Leaving the office or even your desk for 20-30 minutes to refuel also helps to re-energize your creativity. Our brains and bodies need rest every day. When you come back, you will feel refreshed and ready for new ideas and approaches to whatever your work comes to you.

Compliance is here to overcome FOLO and help American workers increase creativity and productivity.
