Summer sessions of On Pause with our partners at Replenish: The Spa Co-Op start Wednesday, June 12, offering art lovers an opportunity for mindfulness and meditation amid the works on view in our galleries. Each is scheduled from noon to 1 PM to fit the standard lunch hour and structured to allow participants to come or go at any time during the session.

But since so many of us are in the habit of eating at our desks—and some workers even feel uncomfortable breaking for lunch—we understand that you might need more incentive to leave work than the vague, zeitgest-y concept of "self-care." So here's some data to back up the benefits of engaging with art and meditation. Feel free to share it with your boss.
