Walk and Talk
“If at all possible, avoid using chat apps like Slack,” says Emily Lesinski, a doctor of Physical Therapy and certified yoga instructor. “Get up and walk to your co-worker’s desk.”
Seems pretty basic, right? It’s also a great way to get your blood flowing and your brain working. And once you’ve developed the habit, extend the concept to your meetings. “Take a walking meeting,” Lesinski says. “People tend to do their best thinking and generate better ideas when they’re moving.” A 2014 study found that people generated better, more-creative ideas while walking than they did while sitting. Plus, those who sat after they walked enjoyed a “residual creative boost.” Not a bad benefit if you’re gunning for a promotion.
