Moving on to the second MIND BOOSTER – HEALTHY BODY, it is well known about the strong link between mind and body. If you want to improve mind productivity then there are two major ways – one is working on directly Mind (Mindfulness, Deep work, etc) and other way is keeping healthy and vibrant body. Easiest path is second one (relatively).
How body is linked with mind?. When body is in motion/moving it produces powerful and positive neurotransmitters in the brain like serotonin and dopamine. These neurotransmitters puts your mind in most high performing state. Better your physical body is better the production of these neurotransmitters.
Dopamine helps in both better motivation and focus. And Serotonin helps in mood and memory. How to get these neurotransmitters produced in the brain? Simple solution is – Physical Exercise. Hundreds of books and concepts have been developed on why physical exercise is important. While they are mainly focused on physical health benefits, I am trying to highlight here the real productivity gain you will get through physical fitness. Your mind productivity gain % through physical fitness depends upon your brain’s natural production levels of Dopamine and Serotonin. For some, without exercise ,day productivity would be almost negative and for some people they can manage it without exercise also. But whatever may be the case you will definitely see good improvement. Do you have any experiences after exercise you see sudden surge of motivation and hyper focus?. Basically your brain got loaded with Dopamine !!.
Use the most easiest BOOSTER of Mind PRODUCTIVITY – Keep moving and get more productivity !!
