Expend Energy to Gain Productivity
Do you sometimes skip working out because you want to save energy? The evidence suggests that you may be creating a LOSE-LOSE scenario. Regular exercise increases the efficiency of the cardiovascular system, boosts the delivery of oxygen and nutrients around the body enhancing alertness, strength and endurance (Melone, Health, 2017). Other studies show that taking some time out to do exercise during your work day can increase productivity in terms of increased quantity of work and work-ability, as well as decreasing sickness absence. Essentially, physical exercise during the working day can increase your productivity enough to counteract the time away from the office and of course it promotes your health. WIN-WIN!
