Following our attendance at the Your Move awards, Vanessa and I were both inspired to see what we could do in our small workplace to improve activity levels. We decided to run our next admin team meeting "on the go".
Our admin team were asked to wear comfortable shoes, and be ready for departure from the office. The team walked for 15 minutes to a local cafe, we ordered healthy juices, and had a great team meeting. The increased blood flow seemed to improve the flow of communication for the meeting, and the feeling was that the meeting was positive and helpful.
The team then walked the 15 minutes back to the office to resume our normal tasks. Immediate feedback from other team members was "perhaps we should walk to the cafe next time." So it seems that not only have we got active, we have also role modelled active behaviours for others!
