This week I began a 6 week full time teaching contract! It is a number of years since I have worked full time and it will certainly be a challenge for our household and me. As we have discussed the lifestyle changes at home, my husband has been encouraging me to make sure I manage to find time for exercise. Already I have found it hard to find that time!
Today in my reading of The Minimalist, there was a list of some interesting research that has been done in practical areas of Positive Psychology. Amongst the list, I came across this article that certainly makes me want to make sure I exercise!
“People who exercise on work days are more productive, happier and suffer less stress than on non-gym days, scientists revealed today.
University of Bristol researchers found that employees who enjoyed a workout before going to work – or exercised during lunchbreaks – were better equipped to handle whatever the day threw at them.
It also found that people’s general mood improved on days of exercise but they became less calm on non-exercise days.”
Can I encourage you to start small and make some plans?
