What is one thing that has helped you advance in your career?
Staying fit. Keeping your body in decent shape helps you focus and embody professionalism. Not only is exercise a stress reliever and an activity that boosts concentration, but it also builds confidence and diligence. If you can discipline yourself to run that extra mile, you can discipline yourself to “finish that report” or work on your “side hustle.”
Exercising will also help you sleep. When your body is tired, worrying about “the project” won’t keep you up at night. You will fall asleep quickly and wake up refreshed and renewed. The added bonus… you will look better at the end of the day!
