Those who play together stay together!
Get inspired and connected to your friends and colleagues through healthy brainstorming and daily exercise collaborations.
Some of the best ways to get our collaborative juices flowing is to get our bodies movin'! While moving our bodies, our brains work more effectively and are more receptive to new ideas. The benefits of physical exercise, especially aerobic exercise, have positive effects on brain function on multiple fronts, ranging from the molecular to behavioral level!
Aerobic exercise not only improves brain function, but it also acts as a "first aid kit" on damaged brain cells. Physical exercise is not only important for your body's health - it also helps your brain stay sharp!
Looking for ways to connect and collaborate with others?
Make your down time quality time - invite others to join and have fun!
1) Start a running group
2) Start a walking group
3) Start a book club
4) Collaborate competitively, i.e. Tough Mudder or Fit Pros Bootcamp Challenge
5) Invite friends over to play brain-teaser board games
If you ever feel an itch of guilt about maximizing the healthy benefits of your downtime, during the workday, remember this:
“When demand in our lives intensifies, we tend to hunker down and push harder,” says Tony Schwartz, head of New York City-based productivity consulting firm The Energy Project. “The trouble is that, without any downtime to refresh and recharge, we’re less efficient, make more mistakes, and get less engaged with what we’re doing.”
