Sharing a meal is a bonding experience.
The ceremony of sitting facing another human forces you fill the time with something and assuming you are not on your phone, that something is either awkward silences or conversation.
Once past the small talk that exchange can reveal insights about a person and if you allow it, you can deepen a relationship in a short period of time.
Running from one thing to another however we can miss these golden opportunities. Fast food, quick bite, grab a sandwich and keep working does not allow for these moments.
Take time this week for a slow lunch.
