Got a meeting? Take a walk

Got a meeting? Take a walk

Meetings work better when you’re walking.

We’ve all heard the dangers of sitting for too many hours, and yet we all do it. Author and speaker Nilofer Merchant has a solution: Take all your meetings walking instead of around a conference table. Not only will it make you healthier-she herself walks 20 to 30 miles a week this way-it will help the free flow of ideas.

Nilofer Merchant suggests a small idea that just might have a big impact on your life and health: Next time you have a one-on-one meeting, make it into a “walking meeting” — and let ideas flow while you walk and talk.

Never, Ever Give Up

Diana Nyad was the first 64-year-old woman to swim from Cuba to Florida. Just reading that line in of itself makes your jaw drop in disbelief, doesn’t it? This was Nyad’s lifetime goal and she stopped at nothing to achieve it. Even swimming 100 miles in pitch black night, being stung by jellyfish and hallucinating.
