A couple of months ago, I started going for a walk every single (weekday) morning. I wake up, enjoy my cup of coffee and head out to take my two dogs on an hour long walk. The best part? My mom does it with me! She doesn’t live nearby, so we aren’t able to physically walk together, but I have my airpods in and we chat on the phone while we’re both walking. We call it our “morning meeting.” I’ve found this time to be so valuable for brainstorming ideas and making a game plan for having a productive, successful day. We’ve been working together for over 10 years now and I wish we’d started this morning meeting routine LONG ago!
While a lot of our conversations are work focused, a lot of them are not. It’s a time for us to catch up and talk about whatever we want—you wouldn’t believe how fast an hour goes by! The research is plentiful: going on daily walks does amazing things for you both physically and mentally. From reducing stress to increasing energy levels and improving sleep, walking is truly a game changer for your health. I also must admit part of the reason I love it so much is because of my dogs. It’s truly their favorite part of the day and it makes my heart happy to see how excited they get when they see me pull out their leashes.
