Some great snippets from this short TED talk from Nilofer Merchant:

  • Sitting is the smoking of our generation. We do way too much sitting and it's costing our health.
  • Take your meetings walking. Instead of grabbing coffee or sitting for yet another hour-long meeting in the conference room, get out and walk while you talk.
  • Getting out of the box (office or cube) makes it easier to think outside of the box. Taking a walk and changing environments often inspires new thinking and perspective.
