The Webster dictionary defines fit as “to conform correctly to the shape or size” while focused is defined as the state of maximum distinctness. Every person or professional who will lead-deploy greatness this New Year needs to first be fit; conform correctly to the shape or size with focus been the state of maximum distinctiveness. So what are you doing to be fit and focused for the New Year? You know when you’re bodily fit, there’s a strong possibility your hundred billion brain cells surely will be fitter. Running once a week wouldn't be a bad exercise gift to your getting fitter for your focus this year. Running helps more than your heart and lungs. Promising brain research shows a strong link between running and a "younger," more nimble brain. Vigorous cardiovascular activity pumps more oxygen-and glucose-rich blood to your noggin. Research reveals Running sparks the growth of fresh nerve cells, called neurogenesis, and new blood vessels, called angiogenesis, says J. Carson Smith, PhD, an assistant professor at the University of Maryland in College Park who studies the role exercise plays in brain function. Walking your way to a healthy heart is also another way to stay fit and focused. Walking is one of the easiest ways to stay fit. You may have a busy life, but try and introduce physical activity in your life. A moderate dose of physical exercise for 30 minutes (if you can’t manage that much, even 15 minutes is okay to begin with) a day is enough to keep you healthy. This form of aerobic fitness can lift your mood, make you physically fit, and improve the quality of your life. Every year I travel to speak, team build, coach & consult around the African continent that I sometimes find myself in a hotel that doesn't
have a gym. Most hotels have staircases so instead of the elevators I walk-up and down the staircases and also pace walk. What if I told you your suitcase can become exercise equipment-the same way you will squat, juggle, mountain climb you can do with your briefcase. Ensure you create time to keep fit and focused this year. You can, you should, and you must. To your success all round
