why more and more employers understand that getting the work-life balance is vital and that staff health and well-being can play a vital role in maintaining the staff healthy, happy, and productive, it’s easy to see why the office kitchen plays an important role in this effort.
Having an office kitchen allows your team to take pauses away from being tied to their workspaces or cubicles for long periods of time. Being able to take regular breaks is very important as is the need to move around and avoid being inactive.
Sitting for extended periods is also known to slow metabolism, which affects the body’s ability to regulate blood sugar, blood pressure, and break down body fat which can lead to type 2 diabetes.
With the ever-increasing evidence that long periods of sitting down can impact our health, being able to take a break away from your desk can only be a good thing. A panel of leading experts chaired by Professor Stuart Biddle, who reviewed the evidence on sitting for the report, recommended taking “an active break from sitting every 30 minutes”. It’s also recommended that everyone should get at least 150 minutes of exercise per week. Walking around and taking a kitchen break can contribute to our daily exercise quota.
