As a business owner, placing other tasks above exercise is a familiar occurrence. But I’m here to tell you why this could actually be hurting your productivity. By prioritizing your health, you will be able to give more to your business and clients. We truly cannot pour from an empty cup, and while it is counterintuitive, we must put our own health and well-being before everything else. Taking 45 minutes, 20 minutes, or even 10 minutes a day to step away from work and move your body can set you up for a more productive work day, better nights sleep, and a less stressful existence.
Working out gets blood flowing throughout the body which will give you more energy physically and mentally enabling you to better accomplish your daily tasks. Business owners who are determined to grow and provide the best product feel they need to give every minute to their mission and clients. At face value this seems like the most admirable option, but by not taking care of your health, you are actually being selfish. Showing up as your healthiest self is ultimately the best thing you can do for your business today and in the long run. I encourage you to make your health a priority, and in turn I promise you will see improvements in so many areas of your life, relationships, energy, and business.
Below is a complementary 10 minute workout that you can do right now with zero equipment! Work through each exercise with a focus on proper form and the goal to keep moving for the full 10 minutes! Even if the exercises are modified your body is still reaping serious benefits from 10 minutes of movement and hard work. Each exercise has a demo video and voice instructions, watch the videos as many times as you need to feel comfortable executing the exercise.
Feel free to repeat the workout 2 or 3 times for a 20 or 30 minute workout! You can do it!! Send me an insta message once you complete this workout. I would love to hear how it went!
