Self Care is key to success
"America is in the midst of a stress epidemic", states John Hall, a Forbes Contributor who specializes in helping companies grow and learn. Consistent exercise minimizes insulin resistance, inflammation, and stimulates "life-giving" factors in the body thus helping you to think and remember more clearly. "If you’re sleep-deprived, your decision-making abilities, focus, memory, and motivation will all take a hit", he says. “People that look after themselves [and practice self-care] do have better cognitive ability. They do have better focus and they do have better concentration,” Dr. Russell Thackeray, a licensed clinical psychologist who consults on the topic of productivity. “They tend to actually produce more.”
