Want Motivation? Do this.

Someone busier than you is exercising right now.

Andy Core is an expert in Work-Life Balance, Well-being, and Peak Human Performance.

Motivation, work-life balance, productivity and stress management all have a common denominator. Exercise.

Researchers at Harvard Business Review found that integrating your work and your life will be easier if exercise is a consistent factor in your life. The better you feel about your work-life balance, the more motivated and productive you will be, which will therefore decrease your stress levels.

It’s a simple answer to your complicated life. Prioritize exercise on a regular basis. Don’t schlef it off and avoid it because you feel overwhelmed or lazy, do it because you feel that way. This one daily habit will change your entire life for the better.

And I’m not asking you to do Crossfit everyday or train for a marathon. Simply choose an exercise you enjoy like yoga or walking, join an intramural team or find a podcast to lead you. The solution is simple. The change is up to you.

Want to Strengthen Relationships? Play.

Andy Core is an expert in Work-Life Balance, Wellbeing, and Peak Human Performance. One of the best ways to keep your relationships fresh and vivacious is by taking out time to ‘play’. Playing collectively with your friends, family or partner can bring you and those involved immense joy, give you all a great boost of energy and will help you to develop deeper, more intimate relationships.

Apart from that, play has the ability to heal emotional wounds and eradicate differences previously existent between people. It creates a feeling of security and develops our trust in others. Additionally, play teaches us a bit about teamwork as well, as when playing we learn to work together and cooperate with each other as a team.

Moreover, through play we are able to refine other skills such as verbalization, social skills and body language. Plus we learn to follow rules, as at the beginning of every game, teams usually set a set of rules that are agreed upon mutually. It’s not only children that should benefit from all the advantages that playing has to offer; rather adults need to incorporate play into their daily lives as well. Reason behind it is that, irrespective of what age group one belongs to, play has been shown to improve one’s mental, emotional and physical health.

Good Intentions Are Nothing without Action

  It isn’t enough to just think about doing something. You have to follow through

It isn’t enough to just think about
doing something. You have to follow through

Maybe you really intended to do the right thing, but life isn’t about what you’re meant to do, it’s about what you do. No matter what you’re intentions, if you don’t act on them, then you haven’t really done anything.

Other people don’t know what’s in your head. And even if you tell them you hope to do something nice, it won’t really mean much if you don’t follow through. In fact, if you get in the pattern of saying you’ll do something, and then not doing it, you will lose trust and will come to be known as unreliable.
People generally don’t remember your words that much, or even your actions. They will remember how you made them feel. And if they always felt let down or disappointed, that is what they will take away from your relationship.

Be who you want to be, and follow through with your good intentions. Then you will be remembered as the person who was always there for a friend, or the hard worker people could always count on at work. It is far preferable to be a person of favorable action than a person who thought about doing responsible things.
