The average American work 9.2 hours a day. Though American work laws require all full-time employees to take a lunch break, only 1 in 3 coworkers actually take a lunch break. The remaining 2 in 3 eat at their desks and do not take short breaks. In fact, coworkers are often hesitant to even take a break if their manager does not. Taking breaks may reduce headaches, eyestrain, and lower back pain.
