One in thirteen UK workers goes for a run during their lunchbreak, according to recent research commissioned by sportswear brand Helly Hansen. The poll found that in total about a fifth of employees do some form of exercise during their lunch breaks.
A Helly Hansen spokesman said, “There is a definite trend of the nation’s workforce heading out on their lunch break and working up a sweat.
“It’s all too easy to stay slumped in your chair and not move during your lunch break, but those who venture outside work return to their desk feeling reinvigorated and ready to crack on with their workload. Therefore it’s good for our health and good for business.”
