Exercise, Memory, and Workplace Productivity

As a manager, I’m guessing that it has never occurred to you to encourage your staff to exercise. You know exercise is good for you, but did you know it’s also good for business? Exercise, memory, and workplace productivity go hand-in-hand.

Exercise, Memory, and Workplace Productivity

Exercise, memory, and workplace productivity go hand-in-hand. Did it ever occur to you to encourage your staff to exercise right at their desks?

…as a manager, encouraging and helping to facilitate athletic activities of your staff is not only good for them personally, it can also make them more productive in the workplace. For example, research has shown that exercise helps increase your mental processes, memory and so-called executive functions, which include planning, organization and the ability to mentally juggle different intellectual tasks at the same time.

[Occupational therapist and personal trainer] Ms. Cohen-Kaplan went on to say that there are exercises you can do in just a few minutes sitting at your office desk or standing right next to it.

For a description of those exercises and lots of tips go to NorwichBulletin.com.

Exercise, Memory, and Workplace Productivity — Alignment

…encouraging your staff to exercise and exercising yourself is not only good for you and your team personally, it’s also good business. It’s a true win when your employees’ goals and well-being directly align with business objectives. Physical exercise is a prime example of employee/employer alignment.

Why not lead your group in a short exercise interval mid-morning or mid-afternoon? Or if your workplace has a gym and fitness professional, why not schedule that person to come to your department twice a day for a quick exercise pick-me-up. Imagine the benefits of exercise on memory and workplace productivity!
