A friend sent me this link from the Globe and Mail. It’s worth a read.
I loved learning about how fit workplaces are being promoted in Canada, and it’s the first time I’ve seen the job title “chief exercise officer.”
It’s gratifying to witness a growing movement for more movement at work. When I started Coachwalks℠ in 2002, very few people embraced the idea, and some told me I was crazy. Fortunately, I had open-minded clients willing to take a chance on walking with me. We’re still walking!
A growing body of research confirms what inspired me to offer the walking option to leaders I coach: walking meetings boost creative thinking, teamwork, efficiency and health. The Globe and Mail article reports on how walking improves “executive control,” too, including working memory and planning/organizational ability. Great news for those of us who feel organizationally challenged. 😉
