What is the story being replayed in your mind when it comes to exercise? If you’re interested in being your best self as a leader in your field, this is for you! You’re not expected to be “on” all the time, and yes, though you see yourself as a high achiever and rightfully very proud of what you’ve accomplished – you are going to have days when your energy is either low, or you’re off your game, AND THAT IS OK!
However, if you find there are more days feeling groggy, unmotivated and lacking the energy, then this might be the reminder and remedy you need.
So what if I was to tell you this solution is guaranteed to work, would you practice it? You know about the other obvious benefits that comes from exercising. You’ve have invested in it, but along the way may have forgotten about the value it delivers when practiced.
Yes, I’m talking about exercise, not for the reasons and benefits we are so familiar with. Here’s what 5 minutes of exercise can do for your brain.
It works – as an example, this morning I had only 5 minutes to exercise, so I did planks, push ups and stretched – I felt 100% better afterwards. Take a look at this article in Women’s Health http://www.womenshealthmag.com/fitness/how-does-exercise-affect-your-brain
And finally, one last attempt to remind you of the bonus to being physically active. Hope it’s enough to stir you into action…
Is this enough to get you re-committed and reconnected?
Tips to get you started
- Find someone who will hold you accountable
- Start right after you read this – 5 mins
