There is a strong connection between health and the ability to achieve success. There are few exceptions, but if you can add more stamina to your success while adding stamina to your body, why not doing it? Let’s break it down on how good physical condition helps your overall success.
You have more energy
And you won’t need caffeine overdose to do the tasks you have to do. This is an essential part because without energy we wouldn’t be able to take the actions we need to take in order to achieve what we want.
If you are unhealthy you will have a lack of energy and tend to get depressed, and all of these will affect your agility into taking opportunities.
It’s also a known fact that people get the first impression of success from those who have more energy and good healthy looks.
You are more positive
Working out is known to be relaxing and empowers our bodies due to the chemicals that are released in the body at the certain effort. That will give you a very optimistic and joyful state that will last for the whole day.
Especially when you start your morning working out. Try to find an athlete that doesn’t have a motivating state of mind on daily basis. If you make sure that you combine working out with eating healthy and resting properly, you are undeniably boosting your moral to highest levels.
You have a clear vision
This is related to the calm that working out gives us. Yoga is one of the most calming forms of exercising, but I found that any type of physical activity activate our full senses and help us focus.
In fact, when I was going through a hard time I made a habit of doing this long distances walks. It became a must for me. Because walking for long distances helped me think clear, get my emotions to positive again, believe in myself and find a solution much more easily than if I was just sitting around waiting for clarity to show up.
“To keep the body in good health is a duty… otherwise we shall not be able to keep our mind strong and clear.”
You have more confidence
When you are healthy, you feel good and you look good. And that boost up your self-confidence. I know that people should love their bodies the way they are, and I totally agree. But trust me, nothing compares with the confidence you get when changes start to appear on your physical aspect.
Is something about that routine you have to go through, that pain and sweat, that commitment to get a result, and after you get it you just look in the mirror and say “I can do anything!” Is just an unbelievable joy that you get from a simple thing like eating healthy and a little working out routine. Nobody says you need to be a model or win some gold medals, but 30 minutes a day of working out anybody can do it.
You live longer
Isn’t this the best part ever? We all love life and value time, and if we could we would add more time to our time bank so we can enjoy things like love, holidays, parties, going to the beach or having a barbecue. Maybe we can’t get more time than we are destined to have, but we can get the whole part of it. Because let’s face it, bad eating habits, smoking, alcohol, and any kind of drugs are just shortening our life. And life is so precious.
The best part of everything: having healthy habits is addictive. In fact, scientist proved that if you exercise for 6 months you will exercise for your entire life. You will be attracted to these positive habits, and it will influence you to pursue even more positive habits. It’s an endless cycle of optimism, wealth, health and overall success.
If you never took care of your diet or never exercised I say this: at least try. See how this feels. And who knows, it might open for you opportunities and energy abundances you never knew you have. Nothing to lose but a lot to gain.
