Are you getting enough exercise?

Is there any correlation between a good sweat and greater work life success?

When thinking about the value of exercise we tend to focus on the physical benefits: lower blood pressure, a healthier heart, or a more attractive physique, but what about our overall work life performance? According to the New York Times, the ideal daily dose of exercise as per current government and health organizations calls for about 150 mins (2.5hrs) of moderate exercise per week. Those that meet this guideline enjoy a list of life enhancing and longevity benefits as well as meet the criteria for being 39% less at risk of dying prematurely than those who never exercise.

Unlike medicine, exercise does not come with dosing instructions.So what is the recommended amount?How much should one exercise to live an optimally performing life? Well, the same researchers also pin pointed the sweet spot for health benefits to be found with those who tripled the recommended dose of weekly exercise from 150 minutes up to 450 mins/week (7.5hrs).

Now, it is important to say that it is possible to over exercise, so make sure not to over do it. Do plan to incorporate adequate rest and recovery into your weekly habits to keep your mind, body, spirit feeling and performing optimally!
