Workout Equipment and Productivity - What Is the
equipment such as ellipticals were considered
essential for living and your health, rather than optional? What would
happen if the
business world placed more emphasis on health and fitness in the
workplace? Despite what many people realize, productivity levels at
skyrocket and businesses would be far more efficient and successful
than ever before!
It is a sad fact that thousands of people are going to die at an early
age this year from heart attack and stroke. Thousands more are going to
be diagnosed with diabetes, sleep apnea, and other medical conditions
that take thousands of lives each year. The suffering of most people
comes from years of making bad lifestyle decisions. That could be ended
if more emphasis were placed on health and fitness in our daily lives.
So many people drive home from work day after day and collapse in their
living rooms with junk food and a remote control. You have probably had
your share of those depressing evenings where you just wanted to sink
into the couch and forget your own life, right? What if that could be a
thing of the past as well because your body was bursting with energy
and you just wanted to get out and enjoy life?
How would your world change if you were actively enjoying life every
night of the week? If you have children, how could your family life
change and how could your bonds with the children deepen if you were
doing active, fun things with them all the time? Things would
definitely change, and not only for your personal life. Your
professional life would change for the better as well.
A healthy body maintaining a healthy weight is capable of getting more
done in a single day than a body that has no energy and is weighed down
by excess stored fat. Someone consuming healthy, nutrient-dense foods
and exercising regularly will be clearer in mind and more mentally
focused, which allows them to outperform those who are sluggish and
unfocused due to poor lifestyle choices.
Productivity and success increases with a focus on health and fitness.
There is no one disputing that fact!
That line of ellipticals
in your local gym is more than just an option
for burning off some stress. Those machines give you an option for
changing your entire life!
Following the Rules
The human body needs a few things in order to sustain the physical
demands for energy placed upon it day after day. The human brain needs
the same things in order to remain alert and focused throughout the
day. You put a lot of demand on your muscles, your organs, and your
brain every single day. What can you do to help them focus and
outperform everyone else so you come out on top?
No matter who you are or what you need to be more productive to achieve
each day, here is what your body and brain need to focus and perform so
you achieve more:
1. Calories delivered consistently throughout the day. These calories
will be turned into energy so you have the fuel to meet the demands of
your busy lifestyle.
2. Protein, healthy fats, vitamins, minerals, and many other nutrients
delivered every single day in adequate amounts. Your body needs these
things to function, and that includes focusing the brain and
communicating effectively between the body and the brain. Even the
metabolism stops functioning properly if this demand is not met
3. Daily movement and challenging exercise sessions on a regular basis.
When the human body remains motionless for too long, it starts to die.
It becomes obese. The muscles start to erode. The joints pop, ache, and
freeze up. Obviously, our bodies were made for activity and challenge.
If these three needs are not met each day, you will not focus and think
as clearly and you will struggle to maintain energy levels sufficient
for your daily life. There are differences between one person and
another, but these three basic requirements are the same for all of us
Why Is Health Not a Priority Today?
On some level, most people want to be healthy. At the very least, women
want to wear the most stylish clothing and look their best and men want
to feel manly and attractive to others. We all have this basic need to
be our best, yet the majority of people do not place an emphasis on the
things that would deliver their very best. Of course, that would be a
healthy diet and regular exercise with an active lifestyle.
Most people live on diets today, but very few are able to maintain
their weight. Most adults spend thousands of dollars on diet foods and
exercise equipment, but very few actually eat those foods on a routine
basis and use the equipment. The focus of the modern world just is not
on health and fitness. Our productivity levels and achieved successes
are suffering as a result!
You probably know what the afternoon slump is, but how do you usually
handle it? With a nap or a trip to the vending machine? If so, you are
like so many other people today. What about feeling completely
exhausted and without energy when you first wake up in the morning? You
may be suffering from sleep apnea which is very common for the obese
How focused are you throughout your day? Do you get as much work done
as possible, or do you know that you spend too much time daydreaming,
trying to get organized, or just dazing off when you should be
listening to others?
Your answers to these questions tell you whether you are meeting the
basic needs of your body or not at this point in your life. If you are
unfocused or feel you are far from being efficient, then it may be time
to put more of a focus on health and fitness in your daily life.
Common Lifestyle Sins
There are some behaviors that are very common today, but which wreak
havoc inside your body and hold you back from focusing and being
productive. What about skipping meals - so you cut calories or just
because you don’t have time to eat? You are not providing the
calories your body needs to create energy or the nutrients needed for
focus and optimal functioning.
Do you stay up all night long? If so, your sleeping habits are standing
in the way of your productivity during the day. You should wake up
refreshed and ready to tackle your goals. If that is not the case, then
your body is sending you a signal that you are not focusing on its
Give your body what it needs, and your world will be a much happier,
energetic and productive place. With proper focus on health and
nutrition, the world could be a much better place!
About the Author:
Joel recently undertook an assignment at an altitude of 16,000 feet
above sea level. While the experience was tiring in general, he
realized that he didn’t get as much havoc as most of his
colleagues. The reason? His good physical condition. For the last two
years he discovered the health benefits of a walking routine. He
created a site where he shares information on elliptical
which, he claims, will help people who want to exercise but
can’t go out for a walk.
