65% of Americans eat lunch at their desks or don't take a break at all. But this social isolation takes years off people's lives. It's time to change the culture.

"There are many places you can eat besides your desk. Like in a common area, or a kitchen...Think of the possibilities out of doors!" Just eat anywhere but your desk, he urges.

It's not like you're working while you're eating anyway.

Take lunch as an opportunity to exercise your social brain! And encourage others to as well.
