  • Why?

    Scientific studies show:

    How we use our midday can improve brain activity, well-being and productivity.

    Brain Benefits

    Our brain has two different modes of thinking: The focused and the default mode. These two modes operate in opposing ways: when one is active, the other is not.

    The focused mode is active when we are working and learning, hence during office hours. What happens when we set the brain to a mental rest and enhance daydreaming during brain breaks? Our brain will switch to the default mode. Surprisingly our brain is very active when we relax: The default mode helps us to process our experiences and learning, to digest the morning input and to make new and creative connections. Ideally a brilliant idea arises while our mind is wandering.

    Digital Detox

    When our brain is overloaded with digital information, we are forfeiting the chance to train and improve our focus, attention and human connection. When we are offline, the experience of live music and interactive fun brain break sessions are proven to increase awareness, social connections and to reduce unhealthy stress. Offline activities that are a positive distraction from work help us to exercise our focus. Offline breaks during our working day are crucial for proper brain function and health. We can clear our head, give our brain space to grow and let our creativity flow and most importantly have lots of fun.

  • Testimonials

    What our customers are saying

    "I loved the approach of a digital detox, how the games took your mind of work completely and left you warm, happy and energised. I also felt that it enhanced our team spirit and helped to get to know your colleagues better in different ways...I would recommend Lunchpause to everyone that is looking for a unique team event to remember!"

    "The lunch break workshop was really nice, I felt warm, relaxed and refreshed afterwards and the fun we had will be remembered for a long time for sure. The activities were easy to follow and also taught me some new things. The team building was a much welcomed change from the usual office day and I would love to participate again."

    "Really nice event to relax and get the mind away from work. Fun games and nice differentiation of exercises (sit, stand, move, listen etc.) It helped to connect to the team."

    "It was great to work together with LunchPause, as they provided all equipment, helped with marketing, and brought 2 great musicians who were both friendly and talented."

    "I really enjoyed the two scatting sessions and the performer was a great inspirator and motivator. We had great fun and was really nice to see everyone truly enjoy the session. Both teams laughed a lot :-)"

    "It was indeed a great and fun experience, really enjoyed it!"

    Johanna von Oldershausen

    I am passionate about learning, exploring culture and connecting with different people. With a professional background as Stage & Costume Designer for theatre, I have a strong interest in arts, performing arts and culture. While working for start-ups in Sweden I developed the idea to bring creative and inspiring lunchbreaks to workplaces in Amsterdam.

    Now, I am on a mission to engage people to get the right inspiration during midday in order to return to work with a fresh mind!
