FMW Benefit #2: Mindfully walking unfamiliar neighborhoods is a breeding ground for insight –you know, those ah ha moments where you make a connection that had been eluding you? Brain research is revealing that you can train your brain for insights. And being mindful while walking unexplored areas allows the brain to make new connections, and Walkers are reporting insights!
And just think about the power of group insights!!! Mindfully walking unfamiliar areas as a group opens up all kinds of ideas for a team of people. Funny how we ask our board members, department staff, or project teams to sit around a conference room table, often in a windowless room, for strategic planning or brain storming. Instead, get out and walk unfamiliar neighborhoods together, without talking! The brains will open up! It’s the ultimate corporate retreat. And it’s free!!!
