President John F. Kennedy once said, “Physical fitness is not only one of the most important keys to a healthy body, it is the basis of dynamic and creative intellectual activity.” So I think the good president was saying, if you want to be a really good thinker you need to get into the gym and be a bit of a stinker.
The same blood that runs through your body also runs through you mind so if you have sluggish blood running through your body, your mind will have the same. The revers is also true, if you have highly oxygenated blood flowing through your body the same will be flowing through your mind.
The by-product of exercise is that you will have oxygenated blood fueling your body and mind and will make you more energetic, dynamic and creative. This will make you more productive at work and in every area of your life.
The Center for Disease Control says that work related stress is one of the largest causes of stress in people’s lives. The Mayo Clinic states that “Exercise in almost any form can act as a stress reliever. Being active can boost your feel-good endorphins and distract you from daily worries.”
Putting all of this together makes it simple to understand why exercise is so important. I will make you smarter, more creative and dynamic, while releasing stress. An added bonus is, you will look and feel more confident in every situation.
So follow President Kennedy’s advise and get in the gym and be a bit of a stinker so you can be a dynamic and creative individual, brining more value to your work place, family and community.
