Most people talk about how physical activity help with improving health & fitness.

When you think about this subject, this goes far beyond your general health and weight management.

There are evidence that during exercise there is a production of serotonin and dopamine.

These are neurotransmitters make us feel good, increase our energy and motivation.

 

In addition there are studies on direct impact of exercise on work performance.

The book The Power of Full Engagement by Tony Swartz & Jim Loehr goes into the study of direct impact of exercise on work performance. They found that through increased energy, physical fitness you are able to focus better and produce better work results.

The first step is to have a routine to do some form of physical exercise. It is best to choose something you enjoy, because then you are more likely to continue doing it.

    Hey Damayanthi,

    I have been writing a post about tips on productivity increase. My post includes exercise and also yoga which I refer to it as meditation rather than exercise.

    great video, great points!

    thanks for the share!

      Thanks for stopping by Akos. For some reason your comment ended up in my spam folder. Just recovered it.

      I will check your blog soon.

    My husband and I recently joined a great gym. I have several reasons for liking it, the price it’s only $10 a month for each of us and no contract. It’s very bright, pretty colored and has a lot of good, clean well maintained machines. We had toured another gym and it was awlful, it looked and smelled like a “guy” gym and even my husband didn’t like it for me.

      Goos stuff Bridget. You are right, you need to be comfortable with what you do, otherwise you will never continue.

    Damayanthi,

    I’m absolutely positive that your observations are correct. Even with that belief, I find it hard to make myself exercise. One day I’ll find a motivation that gets to me.

    Thanks for reminding me that I need to work on this!

      I recommend you include some form of physical activity to your daily routines. Then you know that it will get done.

    Damayanthi, you are so natural in your videos. I feel like I’m sitting across from you and having a lovely conversation! I’m an ayurvedic consultant (Ayurveda is the Indian approach to health and well-being.). Ayurveda believes that the mind/body/spirit are inseparable and when we take care of one, we take care of the others!

      Hi Paula, thanks for your encouragement.
      You are so right, it is the whole package we cannot leave one out!
