Take a short standing meetings to keep them short and concise. In need of #creativity? take a short mindful walk and see how it sparks your creativity.

Stanford's #Walking Study will revolutionize your perspective on creativity... By researchers Opezzo and Schwartz

According to the study, creative thinking improves while a person is walking. The study found that walking indoors or outdoors boosted #creative inspiration.

Across the board, creativity levels were consistently and significantly higher for those walking compared to those sitting.ย  โ€œMany people anecdotally claim they do their best thinking when walking. We finally may be taking a step, or two, toward discovering why.โ€

Adopting standup walking meetings can revolutionalize your team creativity and productivity. Studies by Stanford researchers Opezzo and Schwartz, Hillman, University of IIinois by Dr Chuck, Microsoft human factor lab have been put to practice and I personally witnessed how it can revolutionize teams with twists and adjustments done to each team as needed.

What is the new recommendations to optimize meetings at work and make them more effective:

  1. Efficiently prepare: invite only the required participants. Prepare an agenda to be disseminated ahead of time.

  2. Meetings doesnโ€™t exceed 20 minutes span.

  3. Allow 10 minutes to conclude; cultivating principles of psychological-safety (encourage participants to ask questions, chip in with ideas within the same frame of the meeting subject).

  4. Do not to exceed 2-3 meetings a day with proper #Breaks in between. (Breaks between meetings allow the brain to reset, reducing a cumulative buildup of #stress across meetings, and recuperate).

  5. #ActiveListening is key, hence incorporating

I created a short #stress-reduction strategy that you can utilize at #work that includes a #MindfulWalk. If you are unable to incorporate it during your work day, donโ€™t stress it, you can always use it as a #MindfulTransition in between work and home, early in the day, or at the end of the day.
