March 19th is a big day for people dedicated to both their jobs and breakfast. It’s National “Deskfast” Day, which as you may have guessed, combines the words “desk” and “breakfast.” It’s a term for the first meal of the day being eaten at the work desk and, believe it or not, “deskfast” is an official trend that even caught the attention of nutritionists.
Skeptical at first, many of those nutritionists reportedly changed their tune after discovering that people ate healthier “deskfasts” than they did with home or restaurant breakfasts…or no breakfast at all.
According to www.daysoftheyear.com, this fad called Deskfast came into prominence in 2008 as the European economy went into recession. Workers worried about their jobs began clocking in earlier and staying later, creating the need for early morning sustenance. To be more energized and avoid sloppy syrups, dripping milk, and unavoidable grease on keyboards, most “deskfasts” are supposedly healthier than traditional breakfasts.
Now that we’ve covered the breakfast part, what about the desk? Doesn’t this home away from home for 40 hours or more a week deserve to look good for Deskfast? One way to do it is with Desk Name Plates. Thick acrylic plates hold name/title inserts, accentuated by stainless steel Standoffs for a classy, dignified, professional look.
A2 Curved Acrylic Sign Holders and related Picture Frames stand out, too. Beautifully curved acrylic plates, also with metal Standoffs, deliver dynamic appeal and the consummate professional appearance. Make a statement and enjoy your “deskfast” in style!
Just how does one celebrate National Deskfast Day? Provided you have the freedom to do so, why not make a morning picnic-like get-together with workmates? It could be a good opportunity to connect with co-workers you don’t typically see or talk to on a regular basis with morning bonding over food on March 19th!
