CNN this week reported on the rise of the fake commute. People are building rides, walks and runs into their daily routines and are gaining mental and physical heath benefits. A friend of mine is doing and he is annoyingly fit.

Routine is a proven contributor to mental health. How can we help our teams to fake it?
