Lunch time at FLYLINE: More than just a meal

To Eat or Not To Eat: That Is The Question. How do you spend your lunch break? It´s a lunch break, so one should obviously eat, right? Well, not if you work at FLYLINE. We have the possibility to do even more.  Let me fill you in.

Break for couch-potatoes
If you´re anything like me, you probably like to unwind reading a book, watching a movie or even sleeping. If you´re a couch potato – like I am, you might be inclined to skip the food and dash for that episode of House of Cards. That´s what I do. Well I don´t exactly skip the food because I nibble throughout the day – my second favorite thing to do. During the break I quickly head to the break room, silently praying that one of the loungers will nicely be available for me. You can imagine my satisfaction as I lie down to spend the next 40 minutes in my book, audio book or napping. Even though the break room will soon be renovated and I look forward to the new colors, I'd like to say that the present color scheme and lighting of the room inspires quietness. The mid-afternoon calm that tells your brain, “relax but don´t forget you have to go back to work.”

Culinary highlight
Relaxed on that lounger I can hear the laughter of my colleagues as they share anecdotes over their delicious meals in the bistro. The friendly cook daily offers three to four meal options to choose from and purchase for part of the cost. What is particularly beautiful during the summer is the blooming garden right in front of the bistro. You can enjoy your meal in the nice weather and watch the ducks dance in the pond. I´ll say that´s probably the most beautiful place to be on the premise during the warm months.

Because of the company´s proximity to the airport we have access to even more eateries and gardens. Some colleagues enjoy walking, as such they stroll to the airport or to the green comely garden nearby, with a bigger pond. There´s something therapeutic about walking in calm and beautiful space.

Re-energizing lunch breaks
Other colleagues opt for our relaxing massage chairs or for the services of our in-house massage professional. My colleague Birgit recommends this option as a good massage comes in handy on a stressful day. One resumes work refreshed after a massage session. The multiple programs embedded in the massage chair make it possible to focus on specific areas of the body for varying lengths of time. 

It has just downed on me that I must have ignored one of the hidden jewels of the company. Somehow my preference for a littel nap or a good read made me reluctant to look beyond my comfy lounge corner. Yet may be, I just might enjoy using the massage chair.  You never know until you try, right? Now it's your turn. What do you do during your lunch breaks?
