Our mental firepower is directly linked to our physical fitness. Where is it more important to be on top form than in work? Consider the following cognitive benefits, all of which you can expect as a result of incorporating regular exercise into your routine:
Many people exercise to look and feel better, an activity that takes us away from work or help us justify food (and drink) choices me make over the weekend. It’s time we started considering physical activity as part of the work itself. The alternative hinders our effectiveness at our jobs, makes it harder to cope with stress and get along with our colleagues.
If there is one quality that modern business professionals seek for themselves, it is sustained high performance in the face of ever-increasing pressure and rapid change. (Cue the “Get Fit for Brexit” fitness campaigns) But the source of such performance is as elusive as the fountain of youth.
The problem, we believe, is that people deal with themselves only from the neck up, connecting high performance primarily with cognitive capacity. Our efforts aim instead to help City Centre professionals build their capacity for what might be called supportive or secondary competencies, among them endurance, strength, flexibility, self-control, and focus.
Increasing capacity at these levels allows athletes and everyday people alike to bring their talents and skills to full ignition and to sustain high performance over time.
Our lives are increasingly stressful and we are so relentlessly linear. Typically, we push ourselves too hard mentally and emotionally and too little physically. Both forms of linearity undermine performance.
P1 offers a unique approach to help you take charge of building a lifestyle that isn’t just happier and healthier, but also allows you to perform better in your daily tasks.
