Walking Meetings




'Sitting is the smoking of our generation' - Nilofer Merchant


Wow. 

Strong words...but, in terms of risk for serious medical conditions such as obesity, breast and colon cancer, heart disease, and diabetes, being sedentary greatly increases your risk.

According to Nilofer Merchant, who gave the TED talk below, we are now sitting more than we sleep per day 9.3 hours: 7.5 hours receptively. 









A solution may come in the form of walking meetings rather than traditional sit down meetings.
