Andy Core is an expert in Work-Life Balance, Well Being and Peak Human Performance
A professional speaker reminds us that motivation in the workplace is key to productivity. However, at some point, everybody feels that motivation just isn’t there. One important factor in motivation is a healthy lifestyle, something that is often overlooked by busy working people. Nevertheless, how exactly does a healthy lifestyle enhance your motivation?
Eating well makes you feel better in many ways. Some foods are intrinsically good for maximizing your motivation. Those foods rich in Omega-3, such as oily fish, are essential for brain activity. Others are good for giving slow release energy throughout the day. Professional Andy Core states that the benefit of healthy eating can also be psychological. Eating healthy encourages healthy thinking and therefore increased motivation and self-belief.
Again, this can have a positive psychological effect that results in increased motivation. In addition, exercise induces the release of endorphins into the body. This makes you feel happy and calm, and consequently more motivated to achieve.
Sleep deprivation can have a number of detrimental consequences on you as an individual. These may include fatigue, compromised general health, lack of concentration and decreased productivity. All of these in turn can have an adverse effect on your motivation. Getting the recommended 7-9 hours of sleep a night whenever possible, will really help to dispel these feelings and boost your motivation.
A professional speaker states that simply following a healthier lifestyle can have huge beneficial effects on your motivation; after all, healthy living and well being are the vehicle to motivation and success, not the reward.
