Perhaps Spain shouldn't mess with its perfect eating schedule
February 20 , 2014
Spain is making some big changes in an attempt to get into a typical 9-to-5 workday schedule but LV Anderson of Slate doesn't think it's a smart idea.
A typical Spanish mealtime schedule starts with something small and a coffee at 8 am and a big midday meal in the afternoon followed by a light dinner. This won't be a possibility if Spaniards begin to follow the American schedule.
"Spanish customs will ease you gently into the day with two small, delicious snacks that wake you up and pique your appetite for the midday meal." The big meal also provides people form a break from work, which is important since "it's impossible to stay focused for 8 hours straight, the way we're expected to on a 9-to-5 schedule. It's much better for personal productivity to get away from one's desk for the midday meal."
