Orlando Business Insurance: Outdoors is the New Corner Office
Alternative office spaces are on the rise. More people are working from home, airplanes, trains, coffee shops and hotel rooms. The work place is less defined by the area of your cubicle and more by the range of your Wi-Fi.
But some are even taking the traditional meeting to the outdoors, eschewing the standard conference table in favor of some fresh air. The benefits of walking have long been touted. LinkedIn CEO Jeff Weiner switched to walking meetings after a colleague suggested them as a way to reduce room scheduling issues and sneak in some exercise. Steve Jobs famously asked people to take a walk with him to discuss business, rather than sitting down in an office.
The psychological benefits of walking and exercise are tangible and well documented. Health professionals now actually prescribe exercise as a direct for of treatment. And being outdoors makes individuals more generous and community oriented. Research has shown that those who live within one kilometer of a park or wooded area suffer low rates of depression and anxiety. This is a win-win situation for all consider over 350 million people worldwide suffer from depression. And the added walking and exercise can help costs too- since 1988 prescriptions for antidepressants have gone up 400 percent.
What’s more, the alternative is detrimental to your health. Even if you exercise, sitting 6+ hours a day makes you up to 40% likelier to die within 15 years than someone who sits for less than three. Taking the extra step to take a walk around the block to discuss a project or getting out of your chair rather than sending an email can have huge benefits.
