Why Do Dads Need Time in the Gym?
To Enjoy More Play Time With the Kids
When you arrive home from work, are you exhausted? If so, you’re not alone. Most hardworking parents can hardly muster up the energy to get through the work day. The last thing on their minds after getting home from work is playing a game of hide and seek with their kids. If this sounds familiar to you, you will benefit from some gym time. Regular gym time will provide you with an energy boost by speeding up your metabolism.
Improve Job Performance
If you are constantly searching for ways to improve your job performance in order to get a raise or promotion, you may need some gym time. Besides improving your physical health, working out regularly may help you on the job by providing you with:
- A better memory
- Better concentration
- Decreased stress
- Quicker learning
- Better creativity
According to Ron Friedman, author of the book, The Best Place to Work: The Art and Science of Creating an Extraordinary Workplace, a research study that documented employees’ exercise habits found that “On days when employees visited the gym, their experience at work changed. They reported managing their time more effectively, being more productive, and having smoother interactions with their colleagues.”
If you’re struggling with anxiety or depression, exercise can help. When you workout your brain releases “happy” chemicals called neurotransmitters, endocannabinoids and endorphins. Some people experience and instant improvement in mood after workouts.
If you are a busy, hardworking dad, then you need to find a way to spend regular and consistent time in the gym. The benefits of regular exercise are just too good to be ignored.
