Intention and the Right Actions: Exercise

by Aug 1, 2019

Exercise is the focus of our second tip for our Intention and the Right Actions series and how a little time for fitness can help you arrive at work feeling confident and comfortable. CEO Amy Becker reflects: “In life, there is so much that you can’t control and that can cause negativity and major stress as your day progresses. I have a daily habit that helps to offset this … getting in a good sweat to start the day. Why? Because at least I can control this part of my day.” While Becker opts for a good sweat, even a regularized morning walk can help you gain control of this part of your day.

Staying fit can also help you feel more comfortable with your self, at least according to research. Brian Stulberg reports that “A study published in the British Journal of Health Psychology found that college students who went from not exercising at all to even a modest program (just two to three gym visits per week) reported a decrease in stress, smoking, alcohol and caffeine consumption, an increase in healthy eating and maintenance of household chores, and better spending and study habits. In addition to these real-life improvements, after two months of regular exercise, the students also performed better on laboratory tests of self-control.” Stulberg adds that, “this led the researchers to speculate that exercise had a powerful impact on the students’ “capacity for self-regulation.” This study is one many that link regular exercise with self-comfort and control, but the real test is if it works for you. Give it a try.
