Lifestyle Choices That Increase Productivity


Our health is built on four pillars: physical activity (exercise), nutrition, mindset and stress management.

These components are closely interlinked and completely dependent on one another. They are the foundations of good health and wellness.

Entrepreneurs who consciously work at being fit and healthy enjoy many benefits beyond the physical. They enjoy unshakeable confidence. And unshakeable confidence is mandatory when influencing others and running a successful business.

When you feel healthy, you exude a certain “aura”…it shows. A high level of confidence comes across and you come across as being secure in yourself. You’ll be more certain about what you are saying when trying to influence others.

The level of confidence you achieve after putting in time and effort with healthy eating and exercise is like no other. It is an investment in yourself that you will never regret.

In addition to regular exercise and healthy eating, there are numerous lifestyle choices that increase your productivity and your attitude for better business along with boosting your resistance to stress.


Strategies you can easily put into play on a daily basis that increase productivity…


Wrap your brain around the conviction that your health is your greatest asset and you cannot compromise it. Make exercise a priority. A healthy body helps to cultivate a healthy mind. A healthy mind is a productive mind.

Explore and Strategise

Decide where you are going to work out as well as the frequency, time of day and if you are going to have a workout partner.


Set up your calendar and include your exercise schedule. If it’s on your calendar, you’re much more likely to stick to it and get it done. Treat these times as “non-negotiable.”


Keep track of your progress – how you feel, how you eat/sleep, how much weight you gain and how much energy you have. Evaluate how things are progressing after 2-3 weeks. If the program you adopted does not seem to be working, it’s time to make changes and improve it. If necessary, pay a trainer to get you on track and stick to your fitness plan. After 2-3 months of consistent hard work, you’ll enjoy a priceless exercise habit.

Stay Active

Humans were not created to sit motionless for hours in front of a TV or computer. A sedentary lifestyle only opens the door to bigger health problems. Sitting for a long period of time is linked to obesity, metabolic syndrome, high blood pressure, high blood sugar and excess body fat.

Take breaks every hour for at least 5 minutes. Get a drink of water, stretch out breathe deeply and do some jumping jack, squats or push-ups to get your heart pumping and your blood flowing. This not only energizes you, but it reboots your metabolic motor.

There are many built-in ways to be physical during every day. We just don’t take advantage of them. When you are out, rather than choosing the closest parking spot…choose the one farthest away. Include as much incidental exercise whenever possible. When you have a choice of taking the stairs or elevator…choose the stairs.

Be Aware of Stress Levels

Stress opens the door to a myriad of health issues and problems including fatigue, depression and anxiety. Failing to manage this all-too-prevalent component of an entrepreneur’s life can have devastating consequences. Believe it or not, 70 percent of hospital admissions can be traced back to unmanaged stress. This is not a healthy successful business strategy! Reduce stress by making time for fun and relaxation. You’ll be in a better place to handle life’s stressors.

Eat Healthy

Well-nourished bodies are better prepared to cope with stress so be mindful of what you eat. Start your day out with a healthy breakfast and keep your energy levels up and your mind clear with balanced, nutritious meals throughout the day.

Get Enough Sleep

Deep, restful sleep is what fuels your mind as well as your body. Feeling tired increases stress and fogs your mind causing you to think irrationally.

Enjoy the Great Outdoors

Fresh air is good for us. Force yourself outside to get fresh air, vitamin D and exercise. Even a short brisk walk is enough to recharge your energy and clear your mind.

We should think of our body as a power unit, a macro economy that consists of multiple small enterprises. If you optimize the input to your body’s cells, you will gain maximum output and use the energy you have to the best advantage and in our case, building a business and lifestyle that is enjoyable, viable and sustainable for the long haul.
