Tip 2 – try a walking meeting 

Reduce boardroom boredom and take your meeting outside! 

Sitting for long periods of time has been shown to dramatically increase your chances of suffering from health problems. As well as getting active, a short walk during the working day will boost your energy and productivity.

According to neuroscientists, walking increases blood flow to the brain, which helps people to express ideas more fluently. And - regular exercise has been shown to cause an overall work performance boost of about 15%! 

So, grab a colleague and get those creative juices flowing.

Each meeting could have a different route. You could explore the local area while having your meeting. Working from home? Take that call on the go!


Why walking works

Walking Works is our programme for embedding the culture of walking into workplaces.

Just taking a 20-minute walk on your lunch break can have fantastic health benefits, helping to stave off chronic conditions like heart disease, certain cancers and diabetes.

Join workplaces across the UK who are taking steps to be more active, more productive, healthier and happier.
