I thoroughly enjoy morning workouts one & done.
Thank You for a great article.
It's an overall win-win situation, SparkFriends! The better you are and the better you feel, the better you are to produce will less sick days and such. We are better when we do better.
My boss just started giving us the opportunity to take a 20-minute walk once a day. I'm eagerly looking forward to having the workload decrease to the point where I feel able to take advantage of it!
Its Cat Smiley from Canada & I am new user here also I am personal fitness & coach.
So anybody interested kindly let me know.
I work at a large plant. My coworkers and I like to walk the floor after lunch, helps fight of the after lunch sleepies.
I long ago discovered that I cannot pay attention at work if I don't get excercize in the morning. now to help business owners, CEO's and leaders, I created a package to take them for after work walk to strategize to create more revenue or solve business problems while walking: http://www.allisonbliss.com/wordpress/mone
y-on-the-move-creative-strategy-walks/ - While I see it working, I can't seem to find any serious 'studies' tracking why this works, except your nice report. Can you refer studies on this topic?
I get out and walk on my morning break. It really does make me more productive & happier!
I get out & walk during my lunch hour around my workplace, but this past week-end their was a triple shooting right along my route, so now I'm scared to go that way again!
I believe it. I always exercise on my lunch break at the company gym and it greatly improves my mood and sets my energy for the rest of the day. If I didn't do it on my lunch break, I would be too tired or stressed to do it by the end of the day. I feel so fortunate to have the opportunity! I work for a hospital and every one of our hospitals have fitness facilities on site.
isn't this why the japanese exercise together in the morning prior to the work day... to build commeraderie and enhance productivity?
I think it has to do with the body's releasing stress-relieving hormones after physical activity. I have found that I often feel refreshed after a brisk walk and I use this technique many times at work when I have come across some kind of problem-when I come back from a walk, I find that I can look at the issue from a different angle-it really helps!
