With busy schedules that include work, family, and social commitments finding time to work out may seem difficult. But did you know that exercise can help increase your productivity—helping you to look and feel better?
Exercise has been proven to lower cortisol (the body’s stress hormone). This impacts your physical and mental health allowing you to be more productive.
Increase in Energy
Tired of the 2:30pm crash? Exercise is one of the best ways to battle fatigue and give yourself a boost of energy. Instead of sugary snacks and drinks, you can do short daily workouts that will strengthen your body and support your productivity.
Immunity Support and Disease Prevention
Less sick days means more days to be productive. Reduce your risk of the common cold, flu and other illness using exercise as a defense. Regular workouts may help your body flush bacteria out of the lungs and airways. Plus, moving helps to make your muscles stronger and decrease inflammation which is a preventative measure against chronic diseases.
