Holding a cup of coffee in one hand, along with a chicken wrap and texting with the other, while walking in and out of office buildings is like a typical “at work” status for the most. When we are on a tightly-scheduled calendar, it is easy to forget how to breathe in between and know “what is happening” outside, but yet it is an very significant part in terms of self-improvement, work and life.

We all spend time outside of our work lives, but it is a social norm to put socializing aside during working hours.
