Exercise Boosts Brainpower

Regular exercise not only keeps you fit, it also improves your brainpower. Simply put, according to David Atkinson, program director at Cooper Ventures in Dallas, our energy levels increase when we exercise, which in turn increases the amount of serotonin in the brain. The result is “improved mental clarity” for individuals—and more productivity overall in the workplace.

It’s a simple concept—but one with important ramifications, particularly for employers. As employers look to minimize staff sick time, reduce overall health care costs and boost productivity, finding ways to incorporate (and motivate) exercise into the work day will take greater priority among organizations focused on success.
