The latest research has proven that exercise can also help increase your productivity at work by helping to improve your mood, giving you more stamina, and reducing stress levels.



For one the study, 170 dental-care employees were split into three groups. People in the first group took time off from their work schedule to exercise for at least an hour and 15 minutes, twice a week. The second group had the same reduction in work hours, but weren’t required to exercise; the third group continued to work 40 hours a week.

The findings showed that employees that had exercised reported a significant increase in the quantity and quality of their work compared to those that didn’t spend time working out. They also took fewer sick days, allowing them more time to work.

So let’s say that you don’t have 75 minutes to spare in the middle of the day. Instead, try breaking your workout into 30-minute segments. You can also stash a pair of sneakers in your office and go for a walk outside between meetings.
