I participate in “Walk During Lunch Day”, and was astonished(surprised in a good way) to see that hundreds of people showed up at this event. It turns out to not be an exercise event, but also a social event where I countered many others from different departments. I walked and chatted and had a lot of fun during lunch hour. Although I didn’t win a price in the drawing (a motivation for people to attend), I was glad I had made the effect to participate. Now, I know where to go for a walk around campus during lunch hour, and I’m in the habit of doing it.
Joan and her coworker Sara discuss their office’s wellness events.
J: I wish they’d organize a “Walk During Lunch Day” more often.
S: Why? You can walk on your own at lunchtime.
J: I do walk on and off. I need something to motivate me.
S: And someone to accompany you?
J: Right. Exercise is more fun with friends.
S: So find a friend to walk with. It must be someone in your apartment. Or organize a lunchtime walking group.
J: That’s a good idea. I’ll send an e-mail around this afternoon.
