For many, their days are filled with back to back meetings. While this hasn’t changed given the current reality, something else has. People are not moving their bodies as much.
They’re not commuting to the office, or walking between their desk and meeting rooms. Without this movement, people are going to start having physical and mental challenges.
Here’s a thought: For every 30 minutes of a meeting, stop at 25 minutes and give them a 5 minutes break. A one-hour meeting would last 50 minutes, followed by a 10-minute break. If you’re in a two-hour meeting, break at one hour to let them stretch.
Discourage people from using their break to catch up on email. Encourage them to hug their kids, step outside, meditate, cuddle their pets, etc. The key is to get out from behind the devices.
A little break will go a long way!
You’ve got this.
