Exercise is one of the most important things you can do for yourself.
It’s a simple fact that people who exercise are happier, healthier, and live longer lives. However, exercise can also benefit you in many other ways as well. In fact, going to a gym like Pure Barre or going for a jog a few times a week can also provide all of the following positive impacts on your work life—allowing you to build better, stronger business relationships to help further your career.
1. Look and Feel Stronger and More Confident
Exercising is one of the best ways to boost your self – confidence. The better shape you’re in and the better you look, the better you will feel about yourself. This type of confidence always shows, and statistics prove that most people are keenly aware of how others perceive themselves.
People are always more attracted to those who look and feel strong and self-confident, which means that exercise is a great way of ensuring that you are surrounded by a network of like-minded, strong, and positive people. As well, the more confident you look and feel, the more likely people are to think that you know what you’re doing. If you step into that meeting or interview feeling happy and confident, you’ll have a much better chance of success than if you go into it feeling dissatisfied or sorry for yourself.
Although many people may not like to hear it, the truth is that people still have a tendency to be slightly prejudice to those who are overweight or not in the best of shape. The sad fact is that this is simply a human reality, and it seems no amount of campaigns is going to change it. Therefore, it is important that you present yourself in the best possible light, which means taking a bit of time each week to focus on your health and fitness.
2. Boost Your Memory and Brain Power
Science has also proven that exercise releases a number of chemicals that help improve brain performance, boost creativity, and strengthen memory. All of these factors are obviously important to furthering your career. A strong, clear memory and the ability to think and act quickly will go a long way towards improving your career prospects, while establishing you as someone to be taken seriously in the business world. Luckily, exercising even a few times a week has been shown to improve mental retention, stimulate the growth of new brain cells, and even help stave off age-related mental decline.
3. Eliminate Stress and Become More Productive
No one likes working for or with someone who is overly stressed and always cranky. Unfortunately, stress is something that always seems to go hand in hand with business. However, exercise has been shown to be one of the easiest ways to relieve stress, which in turn can help ensure that you’re much more pleasant to be around.
As well, exercise is also a great way to make yourself much more productive. Although some people view exercise as a waste of time, the truth is, that even a quick jog can provide a huge boost to your energy levels to ensure you remain productive throughout the day.
The truth is that we’re now getting to a point in time where it’s becoming less and less OK to not do at least some form of exercise, especially in the often tough world of business. Therefore, one of the best things you can do to give yourself a heads-up on your competition, is to make sure that you begin incorporating some form of exercise into your weekly schedule. Not only will it make you look and feel better, but it could also be the key to you getting that big promotion or making that huge deal.
