Walk or Ride During Meetings – Meetings often take place in a cabin, conference rooms or boardrooms right? Instead why not go out in a garden or take the footpath and just walk while you chat with your clients or colleagues? head out for a bicycle ride or a run or a game while conversing or discussing, this will not only bring up a lively conversation but will also get a good workout in.
Head out for Lunch Or Brunch – Something more than walk and ride, simply getting off your ass and heading out for a healthy snack does the trick. Meet your new clients at a cafe or at an organic eating joint for some yummy food, where you can discuss new projects. You can also plan the first round of interviews in a cafe so that the pleasant ambiance keeps both interviewer and interviewee in good spirits, ensuring a good outcome.
New Office Designs – We are happy to see architects coming up with new designs for outdoor office spaces. You can set up a meeting room in a green open space like this one. Instead of a typical office, you can come up with unique designs of tables and chairs given shapes of musical instruments or even like a coffee shop and garden using bright, variant colours. If space is an issue, you could simply bring tiny potted plants to your desk or at the window sill. These plants work as brilliant air purifiers and greens bring in a good vibe to the room.
Take Your Laptop Outdoors – If you can manage and head out, once or twice in a week just take your laptop and setup office on the grass. With easy access to portable data, you could head out just about anywhere with your mobile workstation. It could be in a neighborhood garden, at a homestay or literally anywhere in the outdoors.
Outdoor Office Trips – If not possible every month then at least once in three months plan an outdoor work trips. Along with your colleagues, head out to an outdoor festival, go for a wildlife safari or organise an outdoor activity workshop like urban farming, slacklining right there in your office campus. During these activities you can networking, try to get new clients and also get to work at new places. These activities will keep you fit too.
