Productivity Benefits of a 10 Minutes Per Day Mobility Flow
Did you know that daily mobility work can make you 72% more productive whilst at work?
No, really - it's true!
It has been proven that as little as 10 minutes of exercise per day can help you be more productive and energetic.
Today, we're sharing how mobility can help you have the most productive day possible... and all in just 10 minutes!
Increases energy levels & keeps you alert and focused
With your long working day, we completely understand why exercising isn't top of the priority list. And instead, cosying up to watch your favourite series takes priority (we don’t blame you!)
What if we told you that using those last spurts of energy to complete a 10 minute workout would give you more energy in the long-run? It sounds counter-productive, but choosing to exercise can give you a dramatic energy boost.
Exercise enhances your body’s ability to transfer glucose and oxygen throughout your body. This increases the blood flow to the brain, which sharpens your awareness and boosts your energy levels. With this newfound awareness, you’re left feeling more alert, focused, engaged, and have an improved level of performance with your job.
Don’t panic, though! This exercise doesn’t need to be an intense HIIT or functional fitness workout. Low-intensity exercise such as walking or strength-training have the same effect. This means that working on your mobility is also beneficial for your productivity.
Improves brain function & can give you a ‘lightbulb moment’
As a corporate worker, your brain is your single greatest asset. After all, it is the primary tool you use to perform and excel at your job! As this is the case, you need it to be sharp.
Studies have shown a clear correlation between physical fitness, brain function and reduced stress levels at work. Not only that, but people who are active score better in cognitive tests than those who live an inactive lifestyle.
Only when your brain is performing at full capacity can you focus, concentrate, and make better decisions. All of which are essential if you are going to be more effective and efficient. If you’re not able to concentrate, take 10 minutes out of your day to do some mobility work. As soon as you start moving, the opportunity arises for fresh ideas to emerge and evolve which will help with your workload.
Moral of this story? If you want the creative juices to start running, do a 10-minute mobility flow!
Better quality of sleep
As our bodies tire from exercise, exercising daily will help you sleep better.
Although this is the case, it’s important to not overdo it. Doing too much exercise may give the opposite effect, and leave you feeling wide awake. A calmer workout, such as stretching, will help improve your strength and mobility, whilst also preparing you for a good night’s sleep.
Helps to reduce depression and anxiety
All too often we are reminded that exercise is a great mood-booster, and we can confirm that this is true, it is! Whilst working out your bodies release the hormone serotonin. This stimulates your mood and lessens the effects of depression and anxiety. It is this hormone release which makes us feel good after exercise, and makes us want to workout again in the future.
When you feel good, you’re more likely to perform well at work, and so now’s the time to start incorporating some flows into your day!
Reduced risk of health problems (& reduces your sick days)
Regular exercise not only improves your mental health, but it helps to improve your immunity and overall physical health too.
Being less at risk of contracting illnesses means that you’ll need to take fewer sick days from work and can be your most productive self. (Although, of course, it’s always important to listen to your body and ensure that you are well rested if needed).
