Being active is an important factor when it comes to our mental health and positive feelings of general wellbeing. It is recommended that all adults should aim to be active daily and over a week, physical activity should include at least 150 minutes (2½ hours) of moderate intensity activity.
However, with so many of us spending long periods of time in the office, it can be hard to find time to fit in this activity. This one-page guide from Unilever outlines one way to include physical activity in meetings, by changing them from the traditional sitting-down format into walking meetings.
It outlines the benefits of walking meetings, plus some considerations to ensure everyone can enjoy them.
This guide was designed for Unilever’s staff, but you and your colleagues can use the tips yourself to improve your physical wellbeing. You can also use this as the basis of your own wellbeing strategy tailored to the needs of your own organisation.
