If you can’t take your breaks with your other zen warriors, take them alone. You don’t have to give up your cherished break time to the toxic break room. Spend your breaks doing something that will rejuvenate you and uplift your spirits. Go for a walk. Call a friend or family member who makes you happy. Eat your lunch in your car or on a park bench, watching uplifting content on your phone. Don’t feel pressured to have lunch with toxic coworkers. Sure, relationships matter in work, but you don’t necessarily want life-long relationships with toxic people.
