What is BYOL you ask.
Bring your own liquor?
Well, you may need some when the day is over but NO.
BYOL stands for something very simple yet it't not something a lot of people do when they go to work.
SO WHAT IS IT??
BYOL stands for : bring your own lunch.
Brown bag it.
Or get a cute lunch box.
Bringing your own lunch when you are temping is very helpful and makes you less stressed.
Here are 4 reasons why:
1. You run behind
Your day might not go the way you planned.
Ideally it would be great to run on time and get your full lunch break.
But that isn't always the case.
So if you do run behind and not get your full lunch break, you BYOL so you'll still get to eat!
2. There aren't any restaurants close by
So let's say you get your full lunch break, maybe an hour.
But what if the closest place to eat is 15-20 minutes away?
You would barely have enough time to get there and get back before your lunch break is over.
Remember, I'm here to make your temp day a breeze, not complicate it.
3. Lunch breaks vary
Lunch breaks are not a one size fits all.
Every dental office schedules patients differently.
Which means your lunch break can be scheduled differently.
You may have an hour lunch or you may have a half an hour lunch break.
And you may not find that out until you're at the office already.
So bringing your lunch ensures that you will be able to eat lunch.
Which is always a good thing.
4. Get to know the office staff
Maybe you didn't get a chance in the morning to introduce yourself to everyone.
And that's okay.
Sometimes staff comes in at the last second so (even though YOU came 15 minutes early) you didn't get a chance to say hello.
From what I've experienced, many offices do eat their lunch together.
Even with the dentist.
So bringing your lunch gives you some time to get to know everyone better and feel more comfortable in the office.
So, again, BYOL!
