Need to speak to a colleague who you share the same office with?  Don’t use email and the phone its too easy.  You can be walking to their desk and asking them the question (builds strong relationships too!)


Virtual – if you dont have to be on camera, walk during the meeting.  In fact the oxygen will give you more clarity, critical thinking and concentration!

In person, why should all meetings be sedentary, especially when there are two of you?  If its informal and no major notes are to be taken, the get outside, get the fresh air, the exercise and the Vitamin D.  Plus the movement will set for a great creative meeting

Don’t let work become the reason you become sedentary by trying some of these steps, keep your day ‘moving’.
