Walking meetings combat an unhealthy desk job habit

Posted: Updated:
U.S. - Many people in the U.S. spend more than 8 hours a day sitting and recent studies show just how unhealthy that can be. 

Now, many companies are holding meetings that get workers out from behind their desks.  

Research finds sitting for long periods can lead to obesity, cancer, and cardiovascular disease.  
This is leading many companies to promote walking meetings; some even creating an indoor track for employees.

If you are interested in starting walking meetings with your co-workers, experts say it's best for small groups.  Also, make sure it's scheduled in advance so everyone knows to wear comfortable shoes.
