Walking Skype Meetings
Is work bringing you down? When was the last time you breezed through the streets and appreciated the hustle and bustle of the city? If you run a business and spend 8 hours of your work time seating in front of your computer while checking emails and calling clients, you tend to become sluggish as you get deskbound. Working eats up most of your time and this routine is not only unhealthy, but it runs the risk of burning you out quickly.
Strike the Right Balance
You have to keep working, but keep in mind that you also have to keep yourself healthy. Get this- you can still attend your work meetings while you’re on the go! Nilofer Merchant posted a blog in the Harvard Business Review about the concept of “walking meetings”. You get to exercise daily by walking and still get to keep in touch with your colleagues. Not only does it battle the adverse physical effect of seating all day, but it also de-stresses you cause you get to go out doors.
Always be Connected
A walking Skype meeting is an innovative way of keeping in touch virtually. Take note that to make this routine effective, you have to set goals for yourself. You have to know where you’re going, consider the weather and how long your Skype meeting would be.
It’s simple: you just have to plot your destination so that you wouldn’t mindlessly wander around. Make yourself comfortable by drinking enough water and use walking shoes that will easily keep you on the go. Most importantly, tell your colleagues that you’ll be on the move to avoid misunderstandings.You can even record important audio and video meetings through Supertintin.
