Walk. Think. Create.
Walk. Think. Create.
Many entrepreneurs leave corporate jobs to pursue a life with more freedom, but find themselves in front of the computer for hours on end. Often it feels like a waste of time, and with good reason; sitting is counterproductive. Forbes covered the story of how the Walking Movement came about in the article Beat that Productivity Block: Take a Hike Norwegian Style
If you are feeling stuck, exhausted and glued to your chair, you need to take 2-20 minute walks more often so you don´t risk working yourself to the ground.
Get more things done because your memory and ability to learn and process information increases.
Brew better ideas and reach a state of flow more easily.
Have stronger health, and feel energized at work and when you come home to your family.
Avoid the negative impacts sitting more than 6 hours/day has on your health (early death, type 2 diabetes, cancer)
Come up with better solutions so you can deliver more value to your customers and increase your profits.
Walking is simple, but changing working habits requires persistence. You need a supportive community that can inspire you to walk every single day.

My name is Torill Bye Wilhelmsen, and after I burned out in my previous job I realized that you can’t just order a new body online (what a bummer, right?).
We need to take care of ourselves to protect our productivity and our creativity.
I started my own business Fjellflyt (MountainFlow), where I help entrepreneurs start sustainable and profitable lifestyle businesses and build their life´s works.
I am on a mission to help entrepreneurs get the real business and health benefits that the Walking Movement has to offer. Changing working habits is hard to alone, but when you get support from people who already do what you aim for, it feels natural and straight forward.
