Sitting is the new smoking. Meetings are the biggest time-wasters at work. Studies show walking meetings boost creativity and collaboration when done in groups of 2-4 people.
Walk and talks are intimate, provoke honesty, reduce real or perceived hierarchies and decrease multitasking. If 92% of people admit to multitasking during a meeting, prevent it by combining it with a walk.
The health benefits are numerous. It’s a movement opportunity that increases alertness and energy levels and burns calories. See how many meetings you have on your calendar that can be good for your butt and your brain.
