Physical Activities and Work Performance

By now, we all know the different stories about how exercise can decrease the risk of diabetes, obesity, cancer, etc. But did you know that physical activities have positive effects in your career as well? Numerous studies have demonstrated the connection between regular physical activity and better work performance. Here are some of the effects:

  • Lowered stress levels - Avoid burnout and improve relationships with others
  • Increased energy and productivity - Think quicker and work smarter
  • Enhanced creativity - Think outside the box and generate new ideas

Busy schedule? Here are some tips to make sure you don't miss your physical activity:

  • Go to bed earlier and wake up earlier - Working out in the morning ensures you won’t get caught up working late and miss a sweat session
  • Schedule exercise just like you would a meeting - Practice consistency whether it’s a class or a gym visit, put it in your calendar to block the time
  • Grab a workout buddy - Accountability will keep you on track

If you want a dynamic and effective way to quickly improve your work performance, look no further than the practice of exercise.
