If you can produce more and grow mentally, physically, spiritually and financially, would you want much more in life? I guess not.
So what’s the secret to getting that in your overworked, stressed-out daily routine? Let me give you the answer right here and now. Exercise.
Yes it’s that simple. Exercise.
Now you say, hold it buddy, what does exercise have to do with productivity or growth? Exercise has only to do with being physically strong and perhaps fit, but neither do I have time for that nor the inclination as there are many other mental, spiritual and financial priorities.
So here’s where I begin explanation. You see, the progression we humans make in our growth is 4-step. The body… the mind… thoughts and… spirit. If the body is exercised it is supple and light, therefore devoid of grossness. Once that is not gross, our mind is not gross. For example, if a block of ice is free of dirt, the water that melts from it is free from dirt. Now with the mind free, the thoughts are energized, purer, and they come and move faster. Consequently the spirit responds faster and more instinctively, making for quick decisions which are usually the right ones.
So let’s look at the math of this. If you exercise 30 minutes a day, you could make decisions that took hours in minutes. That’s a saving of a few hours every day, depending on how many decisions your position of responsibility demands you to make. All you need do is understand this progression, believe this secret and prioritize your time to bend, stretch, pushup or walk about a bit. Climb the stairs, touch your toes, rotate your neck, press your palms down to the table and push the body forward and back. Do small things that build you up for more reps in less time as you go along. Increase productivity and growth!
