Exercise during the Workday Improves Job Performance

A study from the University of Bristol showed that after exercising, participants returned to work more tolerant of themselves and more forgiving of their colleagues. Their work performance was also consistently higher, as shown by better time management and improved mental sharpness.

Researchers expected that midday exercise would enhance mood. But the boosts in productivity surprised them, proving that workplace exercise programs benefit more than just the workers—they give companies more efficient employees who work better together. Health care costs can be expected to go down for employees who exercise regularly at work, resulting in fewer sick days, better attendance and more cooperation between co-workers.

So take your walking shoes to work and take a  walk instead of going out for a high-calorie lunch. After all, taking time to exercise could translate into higher pay if your job performance improves as a result.

Exercise Boosts Cognitive Function, Creativity, Problem Solving and Productivity

A NASA study showed employees who exercised daily worked at 100% efficiency after 7 hours, while those who didn’t saw a 50% drop, meaning it took them twice as long to accomplish the same thing. So, exercise, in effect, creates time. People who exercise regularly are healthier and have more energy; people who are healthier and have more energy are more productive.

How to Attract By Improving How You Project

Whether it’s your business or personal life, we can gain more by ATTRACTING more.

How to attract? Consider this: What are you projecting?

Are you projecting a life full of joy, happiness, excitement, fullfillment, greatness, pleasure, thrill, encouragement, and other HAPPY, FUN words?

Or…are you projecting need, desperation, discomfort, fear, anxiety or other NOT SO FUN words?

PERCEPTION IS PROJECTION. 

What this essentially means is that people will PERCEIVE AS REALITY what you PROJECT. 

Just like a movie projector that is projecting an image on the screen.  People will SEE whatever it is that you DECIDE to PROJECT. 

If you are putting out there things like fun, joy, excitement, possibility, positivity, etc., THAT is what they will SEE on the screen of your life.

So…think about this ONE SIMPLE THING for just a moment. 

SIMPLE but EXTREMELY powerful. 

SMILE. 

You see.  There’s something incredibly powerful about what a smile does for you…as well as the person RECEIVING the smile. 

Smiles ATTRACT. 

Smiles make people feel good.

Smiles make YOU feel good. 

Smiles release happy endorphins in your body.

Smiles make people want to be around you. 

Try something this week. Smile more. 

Smile at people you meet. 

Smile on the phone.

Smile by yourself. 

This may sound silly or unimportant, but it really is not. 

If you make a commitment to SMILE more this week than you ever have, you will see a direct impact in your business and in your personal life.

 Just do it and see what happens!
