I love to walk at work. The church here has a sprawling campus, with everything spread out; so whenever I have to run something between buildings I try and enjoy the scenery. But sometimes I’m not really going anywhere, sometimes I’m just walking. For my creative juices to flow I have to spread my legs a little, and breathe fresh air for a change. Taking 5 minutes to walk across the campus energizes me, and gets me going for another few hours. The great thing about my walks is it lets me visit with kids. We have a Parent’s Day Out program here at the church, and I love getting to run into kids outside of the normal ‘church environment.’ Here in a couple of weeks school will be in session, so there will be even more kids on campus! So as often as time allows I try and take a walk to visit with the people in and around the church, and I highly recommend it to anyone stuck in an office for any amount of time.
I’m convinced we could all be more productive if we could find the things that energize us!
