Achieving goals is about: focus, creativity, productivity and satisfaction. Scientific, physiological proof follows, business leaders turn walking as a decision making process and result. Steve Jobs was performing his walking meeting, because the movement makes the conversation less stiff, more authentic, more responsible. Some findings suggest that walking does in fact affect the way in which we process and retain information.
For office people, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign researchers determined that sitting at our desks and looking at our computer screens all day deplete our "attentional resources." The result is that our brains stop registering surroundings and tasks because there is no stimulus. However, stepping away and going on a walk provides different sights, sounds, and feelings that re-energize the brain. When we return to our desks, what we see and experience feels new again, so attention and productivity increase.
Science has proved how walking enriches life in all possible manners. And I have proved myself too. I have taken different time for walking for purposeful cause. Nearly 100 km at the seaside for 17 hours, getting into the forest for 25 km under minus 7 degrees and always these adventures turned into post and some more. I say, walking is one of the goal reaching process. It involves focus, creative and productive solutions.

Creativity increases by 60%

Walking is a form of exercising. Some putting on the headset and heading to. But wait, slow down.
Reaching goals when your head is open without disruption raises the level ofproductivity. When you are working in a corporate world and involved in it’s life crossing the building or room, there is always something in your head. Usually thought is somewhere: how to solve one or another problem of the current state. And the answer usually comes, because you have changed the seat.

Productivity raises by 30% (a research from the company)

Recently Forbes discussed a new study that found working at treadmill desks boosts job performance. Rather than exhausting workers with too much activity, working at a treadmill desk at a slow two miles per hour increased theirproductivity and performance on the job. It is important to note that workers needed a time to get into the new routine and get used to using the treadmill, but after four to six months, the observable improvements were consistent and striking.
Researchers have, in fact, reported that children with ADHD (Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder) seem to focus better after being outdoors. A study published in 2008 found that children with ADHD scored higher on a test of concentration after a walk through a park than after a walk through a residential neighborhood or downtown area. Other ADHDstudies have also suggested that outdoor exercise could have positive effects on the condition. Truth be told, this research has been done in children, so it’s a stretch to say it applies to adults, even those who have an ADHD diagnosis.
A study published in the Annals of Behavioral Medicine showed that university students who walked and did other easy to moderate exercise regularly had lower stress levels than couch potatoes or those who exercised strenuously. Studies in Japan showed even better effects when walking in a park or forest. Doctors in Japan are beginning to prescribe walks in the woods to help the mental health of overloaded urbanites. There's even a totally adorable word for it, shinrin-yoku, which translates as "forest bathing."
From stress your perspective turns into vision. "All truly great thoughts are conceived while walking,” said philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche.

How bad your day is a walk can find a creative solution.
Research today shows that when you’re resting, an entirely different part of your brain is at work than when you’re focused on your own work. This is called the default mode network and its processes allow us to think more creatively and to reflect on our understanding of ourselves, the world and humanity.
So, when you really need to get something done, get away from your computer and your conference room, and go for a long walk. It’s not a luxury. It’s work.
