I’ve always loved a good walk ‘n talk. Even in my days of working in corporate marketing roles, I enjoyed taking a lunchbreak stroll with co-workers or my direct reports to catch up or touch base on a variety of topics — both work & play.
A friend, to whom I’ve also provided marketing advice related to her small business, and I recently capitalized on a beautiful South-Shore-of-Boston spring day to catch up on everything going on in all aspects of our lives, and it reminded me how much I enjoy walk ‘n talks and how I’ve got to keep scheduling them with friends and business colleagues.
Benefits Of A Walk ‘n Talk (Walk and Talk)
Here’s my thoughts on the benefits of a good walk ‘n talk, but you may have your own, so please do share!
- Both exercise and being out in nature are good for destressing, and in this fast-paced world and unsettling times we live in, we’d all benefit from a means to unwind and get centered, right?
- Particularly on a busy workday, time is capitalized since both work challenges and opportunities can be discussed, while engaging in an activity that keeps you healthy and in shape.
- Being outdoors is freeing! Escaping the walls of corporate or home offices can cause one to let their guard down a bit, open up more, and be more creative.
- Camaraderie and collaboration are created when you set mutual goals with your fellow walker — like, “let’s up our distance this walk,” “let’s get 6000 steps in,” “let’s walk four miles today,” or “let’s walk to the North End and back.”
I’m always up for a good walk ‘n talk, so please reach out anytime to see if we can identify a convenient place for us to walk and talk!
