Exercise to Avoid Burnout

20 Sep

job%20burnout%204[1]Whether it’s work, school, or some other endeavor, the day-in, day-out grind can sometimes leave you feeling fried.  There are lots of benefits to regular exercise, and you can add this one to the list:  Being physically fit may help you avoid burnout.

A new European study shows that individuals who performed better on fitness tests were less likely to report feeling burned out than those with lower fitness scores.  Additionally, regular exercise can help keep you fresh mentally.

And forget about the “I don’t have time” excuse.  You don’t have to be at the gym for hours every day to realize the benefits revealed in the study.  Just 30 minutes of moderate-to-vigorous activity, 3-5 days a week, can help you ease tension and reduce stress.  You can even divide the 30 minutes into two or three smaller intervals, if it’s convenient.

Regular exercise can help put the spark back into your step by boosting your energy level and improving your mood.

Take care to get adequate sleep and adhere to a healthy diet.  Drink plenty of water throughout the day.
