I AM WALKING RIGHT NOW and also BLOGGING! Our technology advanced society has made it possible to do what was thought to be the impossible, the unthinkable (GASP) – walking while doing your daily work in the office. This astonishing product is known as the treadmill desk and I am using it right now!
What are my thoughts?
Where do I start? After sitting at my desk all morning, it is a nice change of environment. I have recognized that my best ideas are formed before I go to bed (which is why I have a notebook on my bedside table), and while I am walking. This is probably why I decided to write this blog post now. In addition, I recently made some lifestyle changes that centralize around improving my health and wellness. The fact that I can get some exercise while completing assigned tasks makes me feel accomplished.
Unfortunately for me, I have horrible knees and walking for too long can be tough on them. This is why I can only anticipate me using this desk for an hour maximum.
The Benefits of Walking while Working?
- It increases your creativity. If you are wondering why your mind comes up with the best ideas when you are moving, it is because creativity sparks during exercise.
- Do you ever wonder why when you are stressed, you feel the need to go for a walk? It is because physical activity improves your mood.
- It promotes a healthy lifestyle and a healthy lifestyle produces countless benefits such as productivity enhancement, mental health improvement, etc.
I am Speed Walking Through this Week!
Similar to last week, the week has flown by! This week I have assisted BBD with rebranding, social media marketing and more. I can’t believe that my placement is rapidly coming to an end. ONE MORE WEEK! I am super excited to go to Toronto this coming Tuesday for the BBDU event! So, as I sadly say farewell to another week, I greet next week with enthusiasm!
