The world seems to be moving faster! Twenty-four hours in a day simply isn’t enough anymore for a regular person who wants to make time for essential and non-essential activities alike. As a result, some absolutely essential activities get side-lined, to accommodate tempting non-essential activities that might be pleasurable in the short-term. Well, let me get to the point, before I continue to ramble.
As our lives get busier, the two things we tend to cut back on to save time are eating and sleeping. For many, skipping a meal or a cutting back on sleep time actually translates into saving time. Those precious extra hours are probably used to get that edge on the work front or catch up with what’s happening on social media. They forget the fact that eating and sleeping are two essential activities, required for the proper functioning of the body. Trying to make time by skipping these essentials will definitely have long-term repercussions on their health.
Most of the time, people have inadequate quantities of food, and later complain of tiredness and exhaustion at the end of the day. It’s like trying to drive a car for 50 miles, after putting in fuel for only 40 miles! Another new mantra is to starve the body to fitness; eating less is now the way to go to become slim and fit. Actually taking the time out to enjoy lunch, to taste the food and appreciate the flavours has long become a thing of the past.
Restaurants have also caught up with the fad, and are now serving measly portions with fancy sauces drizzled on them. They have honed the cunning art of charging more for less, by using exotic names and ingredients in the dish description. Lunches are usually a popular meal to skip, especially on working days. You can’t blame people as they barely get an hour off for lunch, before they have to be back at their stations and behind the screens.
But it’s definitely time to make a change! Carry a sandwich, salad or fruits to work, and at least once a week, indulge in a hearty lunch at a restaurant close to your workplace. Sydney is a multi-cultural melting pot as far as cuisine is concerned, and you’re sure to find interesting options to try out.
If you work around Darling Harbour or Circular Quay, you should use your lunch break to get out and enjoy the bustling atmosphere. Maybe even take an extended lunch break and indulge in one of those leisurely Sydney Harbour lunch cruises. They offer delightful buffets with a good selection of dishes. There are multiple selections of hot and cold dishes, salads and desserts. And the best part – it’s an all-you-can eat buffet, so definitely no measly portions!
The lunch cruises on the Sydney Harbour offer more than just great food, but great harbour views as well, as you dine at individual tables, like in a restaurant. An experience like this will actually rejuvenate you and make you more productive, once you’re back at work. These Sydney Harbour lunch cruises can take you away from reality for about 2 to 4 hours; so make your choice depending on the time you’re willing to spare.
Allow yourself an easy-going casual lunch once in a while, the benefits will go a long way in making you a healthier and happier person!
