When it comes at productivity, nutrition and exercise have been found to be impacting it in a positive way. Having a healthy lifestyle and incorporating exercise in our daily routine can show very convincing results.
Exercising for raising productivity level
Most of us are aware of what happens to the body when we exercise. We build more muscle or more stamina. We feel less exhausted and activities requiring physical motion becomes a lot easier for us. Well our brain has too got its won set of reactions when it comes to exercises.
If you start exercising, your brain recognises this as a moment of stress. As your heart pressure increases, the brain thinks you are either fighting the enemy or fleeing from it. To protect yourself and your brain from stress, you release a protein called BDNF (Brain-Derived Neurotrophic Factor). This BDNF has a protective and also reparative element to your memory neurons and acts as a reset switch. That’s why we often feel so at ease and things are clear after exercising and eventually happy.
As per the New York Times best-selling author Gretchen Reynolds, a routine of 20 minutes regularly is enough to get a happier and productive life.
Nutrition is another critical element
“Adequate nutrition can raise your productivity levels by 20 percent on average.” ~WHO
What we eat can have a direct impact on our productivity. As per the science, our body changes every seven years thus providing us opportunity to reverse any kind of mistakes, which we might have done in past. A few changes in the daily routine combined with some healthy choices can surely bring about a considerable change in our body.
Many people take eating less is the key. But maintaining the nutritional balance is important. However something revolutionary like the small plate movement can work favourable on cutting the extras from your meal. It states that the portion you eat from a small plate will always leave you a feeling of more satisfaction and a full belly thereby increasing a chance of gain of 1 hour productivity everyday.
Bringing about the healthy changes and joining the small plate movement can substantially work on your productivity levels.
