A friend of mine quoted the ‘never eat alone’ concept referring to a need for good company during meals at work and also as a networking tool.
I thought I would provide the alternative point.
Enjoy the solitude that comes with lunch alone.
If you are introverted, it is bliss anyway.
And, if you are extroverted, it is a great opportunity to catch up with your thoughts.
There are so many equally amazing options when you eat alone, take a book along and read alongside, listen to music while staring into nothingness, relish every bite of what you are eating and remember how blessed you are to be where you are, among others.
So, just for today, find a quiet corner and have lunch by yourself.
Consider making it a weekly habit at the very least.
You tend to get very less ‘alone time’ as life goes by.
