Extra Spark This Spring


This spring I’ve got a secret weapon to make my business better, and it’s not technology.

My secret weapon – exercise!

The real reason we feel so good when we get our blood pumping is that it makes the brain function at its best.   

~John J. Ratey

After a long winter, on top of recent recovery from a knee surgery, I was ready to get moving this spring! I have been extra dedicated to my morning workout.

My key to success? I put on my workout clothes first thing in the morning. That way there is no excuse when it’s time to workout, I am already dressed and ready to go! It was a simple habit change that has made exercising just a little bit easier to make happen everyday.

How does exercise help make my business better?

This month’s juicy read from the CIO book shelf explains the science behind how exercise remodels our brains for peak performance. “Spark,” by John Ratey is the first book to explore comprehensively the connection between exercise and the brain, and investigate the transformative effects of exercise in all areas of life—including work. You can transform your performance levels and function better than ever, simply by elevating your heart rate and breaking a sweat.

Research in “Spark,” shows that regular aerobic exercise helps beat stress, lift your mood, fight memory loss, sharpen your intellect, and function better than ever for peak performance.

What extra “spark” will help to make your business better this spring?
