The Walking Meeting


It gives a new meaning to walking the talk! If your job involves many SIT DOWN meetings, with one or a few other people, why not offer up a walking meeting.  Nothing more complicated than it sounds. Just walking and talking!

Personally, my meeting schedule can run from as low as fifteen meetings a week to as many as thirty. Some quick calculations suggests that if a person just converted a few 30 minute meetings a day to a walking meeting; that would translate into an additional 5 hours of exercise a week. That’s crazy talk!

I’m SOLD. I’ll be offering this up as an option for as many meetings as feasible. How about you? Are you into walking meetings?
