Here are some of the benefits of making one meeting each day a walking meeting.
By increasing the amount of time you spend walking by 30 minutes each day, you may enjoy many short-term and long-term health benefits, including improved mood and lower risks of developing certain diseases according to Prevention magazine. If your initial reaction is, “That sounds great, but I don’t have an extra half hour per day to exercise,” you’re wrong! You can make your time work twice as hard for you by walking while you’re on a conference call. This hack can work especially well for calls where you need to participate but don’t need to be in front of a screen.
Another great way to benefit from daily walks is to share it with a colleague by scheduling a walking meeting. Instead of talking around a conference room table, book 30 minutes to walk around a nearby park or down the street. The fresh air and change of scenery might even lead to your next creative breakthrough.
