I know this is not a post about GSA Contracts or getting on schedule but in order to succeed in business you need drive, and your daily drive to succeed is fueled by energy. So, I have a tip on how to keep your energy high while you sit in the same chair for hours on end. Lat week I traded my comfortable, probably very ergonomic office chair for an exercise ball. This probably seems crazy to some, but there are benefits you may want to consider before passing judgement. By sitting on an exercise ball, you are in a constant state of balancing, and this has many healthful advantages:
- Improved Circulation – Blood flow is increased to all parts of your body throughout the day.
- Better Balance – every time you move, you must re-balance. Imagine how much your balance will improve with 8+ hours of practice, 5 days a week.
- Spine Alignment – On an exercise ball, you are constantly balancing your body. The perfect spinal posture is coincidently the easiest to balance with.
- Higher Energy – In addition to burning 350 calories each day, your energy will increase. It has been proven that staying in one position, will make you more tired, while moving around and being active with give you more energy.
The long-term effects of sitting on an exercise ball throughout the day are extraordinary, and you can harness the improved health and energy level into drive to land the big federal contracts.
