Walk & Talk

Steve Jobs did it. And now Mark Zuckerberg does, too. Even President Obama is up on the trend. We’re talking about walking meetings, where a small group gathers to walk either indoors or out while conducting a meeting. With the rising rate of obesity in the U.S. and data showing that more than half of all Americans fall short of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommendations of 150 minutes of moderate intensity exercise each week, walking meetings can make a significant impact on health. In fact, a recent study showed that having walking meetings can add an average of 10 minutes more physical activity to a normal day. But it’s not just health that gets a boost. Recent research points to an increase in creative thinking during walking. Anecdotal reports suggest higher participation, more honest communication, and greater productivity than sit-down meetings.
