If you’re too busy with your business to work out, you are leaving money on the table!

I get it, you’re a busy person. You get to the gym when you can, but there are a million things to do in the day. There are deadlines to hit, calls to be made, meetings to get to, projects to finish, and emails to be answered.

(Not to mention getting it all done in time to catch the Oilers Game)

All of those tasks can help make you money. They all help grow your business, and move things forward.

Unfortunately, going to the gym does not. Or that’s what you’ve been led to think.

No, you’re not going to get paid to go to the gym, but the effects of getting a workout in will in fact make you money. Almost every Multi-Millionaire from Richard Branson to Mark Cuban includes some sort of physical activity daily. So, if they see the benefits, so should you.

So how does a workout make you money?

Why are you leaving money on the table if you don’t get a sweat on?

(This isn’t a secret by any means, yet most people will never realize these things)

Well, here’s just a few reasons why…

  • Exercise reduces stress and anxiety, while boosting your mood

Feeling bogged down by overthinking different things you need to get done? Experiencing some self-doubt about a project, or stressing out about making that next sale? Well, imagine having a productive outlet for all that stress, and feeling better after you’re done. This is what exercising can do for your body and your mind. Sometimes the answer to your problem comes when you step away from it, and get some blood pumping.

  • Exercise increases your confidence

Have you ever wanted to feel like you can accomplish anything in your life? Strength training can do that for you. What might seem impossible when you first start off, becomes completely possible once you keep working at it. This is one area in your life that you can see noticeable changes when applied over time. Let’s say you start of deadlifting 135lbs for 1 rep. 200 sounds like it’s going to be impossible, doesn’t it? Well after a few months of training, you hit 200lbs, and imagine how that makes you feel?

Not only is it the accomplishment of strength gains, but we feel better in our body, we hold ourselves in higher regard, and our confidence shoots through the roof in the gym, and in our business.  

  • Exercise improves your immune system

What’s one of the worst things that can happen to a business owner or high-level executive? Getting sick. We work so hard to get ourselves into a place where we can deliver an outstanding service to our clients, but it all falls apart when we get sick (especially for a solopreneur). Now we are forced to take time off, can’t deliver our service as effectively, and even when we do try to work from home, we are so bagged and drained nothing really gets done. We lose money during these days, which to some people, isn’t an option!

Well, exercise and eating whole foods can help naturally boost our immune system. Our body becomes more effective at fighting off illness, and even if we do get sick, the effects aren’t as severe. Taking care of our body when we are healthy, helps us when we are ill, so don’t wait until you’re sick to start taking care of yourself.

  • Exercise reduces the symptoms of fatigue

Ever hit the 2 o’clock wall? It’s the middle of the day, you finished lunch and now you can’t seem to stop yawning. Your eyes are tired, you can’t focus, your quality of work drops dramatically, and all you want to do is have a nap.

Did you know you can actually do something for this?

By getting an adequate sleep at night, staying hydrated, and eating nutrient dense foods, you can naturally increase your energy, but know what wakes you up the most? Getting up, and being active!

Exercising regularly helps us feel more energetic on a daily basis, but it can also wake us up. By simply adding in a small walk mid-day you can feel more refreshed, more energetic, and be more productive. Not only will it increase your energy, but you’ll have a better capacity to remember things, and you’ll be more equipt to get sh*t done.

We get stuck thinking exercise will only improve our body, but don’t realize how much it improves our mental toughness, and focus for the day. It doesn’t matter if you get your workout in before work, after work, at lunch, or before bed, as long as you’re moving your body and taking care of your physical well-being it WILL pay off in more ways than you imagine.

So, now you have a new tool to use to build your business and make more money!

Don’t waste your time, and utilize these tool NOW!
