Get Out, Get Fit and Get a Life!

Your onto your 3rd cup of coffee for the morning and surreptitiously eating red frogs from your desk drawer hoping to find some energy in the bottom of your cup.

So many of us are ‘surfing the net’ and staying at the desk during our breaks, and it does help to create a feeling of busy-ness, as if we’re doing something, but if you really want to boost your work effort, you creativity levels and your brain power, and your happiness, all while getting fit and healthy. Get up from that chair, go outside and take a walk.

Those emails will wait, those blogs will get written when you get back from your walk, and furthermore they will be more creative and more organised. Your walk will have stimulated the release of happy hormones (e.g. endorphins) and vital neurotransmitters and you will be sparking on all levels.

Perhaps we need to have a chat with the boss about making morning walks a part of the work day, productivity would boom and employees would be happier, all round a win-win situation.

Be Fit! Be Well!
