Moving at Work

Much of today’s office work keeps us in place, and so we’ve encouraged behaviors in the office that encourage people to get up and move about.  Print your document on a distant office printer, not your desk side printer, so you have to walk to get it.  If you answer the phone and the speaker wants to talk with your office mate, rather than using intercom, get up and walk across the office to tell them about the call.

Get up and go sit in front of a co-workers desk to have a conversation. Just because technology is available does not mean we have to use it.
