To combat afternoon slumps in enthusiasm and focus, take a walk during the lunch hour. A stroll pays off in immediate ways, a study found.
Making time for exercise is critical to sales success. Whether you’re working in an office, from home or on the road making time to take care of your physical health leads to improved mental health and improved productivity and performance.
When you’re in better physical health, you look better, you feel better and you’re more confident. These positive feelings contribute to a positive disposition and a positive mindset. Because now you’re getting your mind and body to work in unison, you’re making better choices about what to feed your mind and about what to feed your body.
Physical fitness all begins with the mind. You have to train your mind to train your body to promote mental and physical fitness. All of this leads to the proper mindset for achieving goals in sales and in your life. Setting tangible, measurable goals works for fitness just as sales.
Nike knows this: the new Nike FuelBand motivates you to measure, track and compare your fitness results with your friends: just as sales people compare and compete on sales goals. I love these types of tools and they work for me both professionally and personally.
