Outdoor Meetings: 5 Reasons to Step Outside of the Office

Meetings & Events, Business Articles

With the current changes in the world, not only are we spending too much time sitting down at our - often improvised - desks, now it's the perfect time to consider outdoor meetings.

Whether it’s an informal conversation while walking, outdoor meetings, walking on your lunch break or stepping outside to rejuvenate your team - get out there and feel the energy! Below are five reasons to get yourself outside:

Inspire creativity

Nature knows no bounds and neither should you! Modern technology and multi-tasking can overtax the brain, so set yourself free and increase your productivity by up to 50%.

Stimulate your senses

Nature awakens all our sensory stimuli. We challenge you not to feel alive standing by a babbling brook, feeling a breeze on your face or taking in the smell of fresh spring flowers. What will nature inspire in you?

Get some Vitamin D

Known as the ‘sunshine vitamin’, Vitamin D is produced in the skin in response to sunlight. It’s vital to the health of your bones, teeth and for a healthy immune system. You certainly won’t get it sitting at your desk so find a way to get outside!

Feel good

It’s a well-known fact that spending time outdoors cultivates better mental health. Nature has a calming effect on the mood and generates feel-good endorphins. According to research, even the view of nature out a window is associated with lower stress levels. So, if you’re looking to re-energise yourself, the answer’s just a step away.

A positive change

Add all these things together and share the experience with others through an outdoor meeting or team building challenge, and you have a great formula for positive change.
