sit and standGo ahead and be supportive of creativity if you want. But what the title really means is that new research suggests standing results in higher levels of creativity compared to doing the same task while sitting. Groups were given 30 minutes to develop a college recruiting video. Some groups stood, others sat. The groups that stood reported more excitement about the project, generated more ideas, had greater participation and produced better rated videos. So, the next time you’ve got a project to complete, try doing it standing up!
