In my corporate job, I almost always ate at my desk. Now, if I'm not driving around and therefore eating in my car, I take 15 minutes or so to sit down and read something while eating my meal. And in the summer when it's nice out, if I'm working at home, I sit out on the back deck. And I admit, sometimes my break extends to more than 15 minutes.

After suffering a heart attack several years ago, my Surgeon said that the ups and downs and pressure of the mortgage business,one should never eat where they work. He gave me a pamphlet to read about eating in the work place. The percentage of people who suffered heart related issues increased greatly between those who eat at work as opposed to those who go out. He even said your better off eating in your car away from the office, than at work.
