How Running a 5K Can Actually Improve Your Career This Year

images It’s a New Year and after hearing this past years performance review, you might be more determined to do better than ever this year. It’s a little known secret that daily exercise can help make you more successful. In fact, in a 5 year study by Tom Corley says that wealthy people exercise 3 to 4 times a week. No, you probably won’t get a million dollar bonus or become Apple’s CEO just because you can run 3.1 miles, but the habit of running and exercise helps you become your best, which will help you get that raise or promotion.  The following are benefits that running a 5K can have on your career:

Stress Relief- Work can be stressful. Let’s rephrase that, work IS stressful. Unless you get paid to watch Netflix or play with kittens, it’s likely you will deal with some sort of stress at work. Dealing with this stress day after day, hour after hour, isn’t helping your health or letting you think as clearly, and this is affecting your success. Daily exercise allows you to take a break, sweat out the bad and start anew with a clear mind. Bonus tip: Listen to “Hakuna Matata” as you stretch post-workout.

Happier- Do you roll out of bed and dread going to work? Well consider exercising your new morning happy pill! Recommended Dosage: 30 minutes, once a day, 5 days a week. That’s a doctor’s note you don’t have to struggle to read. Exercising can boost your mood for hours, which will help dealing with angry customers (or bosses!) that much easier. In the words of Bob Marley, “Don’t Worry, Be Happy!”

Raises Confidence- Exercising helps you look better, which helps you feel better, which helps you do better. Walk into important presentations feeling like people are listening to what you say, not staring at the rolls that may have gotten a little bigger than you wanted over Christmas. There isn’t time for middle school awkwardness in the workplace. Having confidence will help you to work harder and present yourself better, which is a golden key to success.

Overall, we know that exercise can only benefit you, not only in your health but in your career. Be more successful than ever this year by exercising to relieve stress, be happier, and raise your confidence!
