It’s no surprise that any motivation to get up and work a sweat has gone out of the window and buried itself since covid-19 started in 2020.

But don’t let that be an excuse to stray from those resolutions and lose your workout mojo. 

It’s no secret that exercising will improve your health. Working out on a regular basis is good for your internal organs and helps you get fit. But, did you know that living the fitness lifestyle will improve your brain power and make you a more productive person? That’s right! Going to the gym isn’t all about bulking up and getting amazing six-pack abs to impress the ladies and gentlemen at the beach. 

More Brain Cells

According to doctors which we are sure not. The rate of which your brain cells are growing will decrease as you get older. Luckily, this can be prevented. In 2008, a study showed the brain cells of the people who exercise on a regular basis have a higher brain growth rate.

Meaning, adults who don’t neglect the gym have more brain power than those who choose to be inactive. This causes them to have an advantage in their workplace in order to advance their careers.

More Energy

I am no scientist, but I know a thing or two. So, here is a quick biology lesson: The majority of the cells in your brain contain something called mitochondria. The purpose of this component is to produce the energy that your body needs. Now, when you exercise, it causes your body to develop more mitochondria, which leads to you having more energy. 

Now to put it as simply as possible, the more you workout the more energy your brain has. And the more energy your brain has, the sharper your decision making skills will be. 

Handle Stress Better

It’s no secret that the corporate world is an extremely stressful place. It’s not uncommon that people voluntarily leave a perfectly well-paid position because they can’t deal with the stress and anxiety that comes with the job. 

Some companies have implemented exercise or activity breaks for their teams. This helps build a strong workforce as the team members work together and release stress. During team activities, it can generate creativity to solve an issue with a project. More goals are met on the company and personal levels when employees partake in a bit of physical activity

If only they knew exercising will fix this problem…

Makes You Happier 

When you do exercise it releases a huge amount of endorphins and serotonin into your body.

Endorphins and serotonin are known as natural cures for depression. The benefits don’t stop there. Endorphins improve your abilities to prioritize tasks. This helps you stay focused on urgent matters in the workplace rather than procrastinate.

For sure we can count on working out to make us healthier. It helps with your strength, endurance, your heart rate, oh and let’s not forget about your joints, your legs, etc… I mean we can go all day about this, but you get the point. 

Exercise improves productivity in multiple ways. Staying fit and healthy is important for productivity. Those that eat a healthier diet are more productive at the office. Fatty foods and unhealthy eating practices slow your metabolism and reduce productivity. Make time every day to exercise, eat healthy and brainstorm ideas to move a difficult project along a bit faster. If your days are typically hectic, create a list of priority tasks and adjust it after your morning exercise routine as you may be up for tackling harder tasks first with some extra motivation.
