Do you exercise?
When working in the office, many people spend a large amount of time sitting and staring at screens.
Physical movement is extremely important for the body and mind.
In the army, they say: “A strong body is a strong mind”.
Exercise is so, so important. We’re not talking crazy, deep exercise; but ‘normal’ exercise.
Set aside 20 minutes a day and do some type of workout that gets your heart rate up to 160 (beats per minute).
Work up a sweat. If you’re not sweating, you are not exercising!
A treadmill or an elliptical trainer is great, too.
(Although a brisk walk doesn’t raise the heart rate, it is better than nothing.)
Regularly exercising keeps the body
and releases chemicals that help us stay young and healthy.
Personally, my daily exercise includes push-ups (I do the amount to match my age).
Exercise can be added to your daily schedule in many ways:
Walk to work.
Stand while you work.
Ride a bike.
Or, do something more physical.
The best would be to do 30 minutes of exercise per day; but if you can’t, keep in mind what Jeb Blount calls the ABTN methodology: “Anything is Better Than Nothing!”.
