Get Moving for Less Stress and More Energy

by Brad Campbell

Being smart and savvy is a great way to get to the top, but it can be exhausting. You will likely find that the days seem to be getting shorter and your capacity for stress is diminishing over time. The period for recharging your batteries takes longer each time as the stress level increases. Many successful business people have noted that along with organization and stress reduction, exercise plays a key role in maintaining drive and focus while reaching for greater heights. What better New Year’s resolution to make?

Many will see exercise as just one more thing that they will need to add to their day which will take up more of their time. In fact, exercise helps to energize your day so that you will be able to get more done. You will find that you are thinking clearer in meetings and that your stress levels are being reduced. The trick is to find a time during the day which makes the most sense to you and then make a commitment. Once you get started, you will notice a difference in the rest of your work day and you will be encouraged to stay the course.

Boost Your Energy
The feeling of lethargy that most people feel in the early afternoon is due to the fact that their bodies get used to sitting around doing nothing. Not only will this lead to weight gain, it can also lead to an inability to stay focused on the tasks at hand. Seen in numerous works and articles, working out or exercising on a regular basis, you will be able to boost the amount of energy that you can draw on throughout the day.

Reducing Stress
Often the stress felt by successful female entrepreneurs is compounded by the attempts to outdo the men that they compete against. Exercise helps to eliminate stress by giving you an outlet for some of the negative energy that you might be encountering. The less stress you have, the easier it is to focus on what you are doing. You will be able to connect ideas and points together easier because there will be less blocks in between you and your goals.

Getting Started
For most, the hardest part is simply getting started. Start small! Finding a time of the day for your exercise is also extremely important. Many enjoy working out in the morning best. It gives you the opportunity to enjoy that energy for the rest of the day. It also stops you from making excuses as to why you cannot work out that day. By starting your day off with an exercise routine, it becomes a part of your routine and before long, you will feel off balance if you do not workout. If you feel better about working out in the middle of the day, after work or before you go to bed, that is okay as well. The most important part is that you have a routine and that you stick to it.
