Exercise Fuels Your Body and Mind

Physical exercise is a crucial part of life success.

The physical domain is one of the 10 life domains that we should all be pursuing balance in on a consistent basis.

And it has a direct correlation to how effective you are in practice.

Today we're going to discuss 3 ways that exercise helps your practice grow.

Exercise helps your practice

#1 Exercise Improves Confidence

Confidence is one of the most important factors in practice success. If you are confident it will come across in your communication with patients and staff. When you are confident in who you are and what you do it translates to more practice certainty and clarity. It can have a dramatic impact on your practice and it's one of the most important ways that exercise helps your practice grow.

When you consistently exercise increases your confidence because when your body and mind are functioning at a higher level you feel better and more confident.

Here are 5 ways that exercise boosts confidence:

Weight Control 

Exercising along with healthy eating is the best way to control weight or lose weight. An overweight chiropractor may have more difficulty communicating with patients, especially about the importance of exercise and nutrition. Being overweight can be a confidence destroyer. Therefore the better shape you are, the better you will feel.

Improves Mood

There’s nothing better emotionally than a good workout. Exercise stimulates brain chemicals like dopamine and serotonin, which promote a general feeling of well-being. The results are a reduction in stress and anxiety. This can translate into your ability to focus and communicate clearly during your practice day.

More Energy

If we don’t have the energy to do things, then everything becomes a chore. Regular exercise helps the whole bodywork more effectively. This literally allows you to move faster in your practice which allows you to help more people.

Better Sleep

Regular exercise promotes good sleep. Getting consistently good sleep improves creativity, focus, and communication with staff and patients.

Feelings of Achievement

When you make a commitment to yourself and follow through on it such as choosing to exercise even when you don’t feel like it can have a dramatic impact on your brain. When you consistently keep your word to yourself it can make a big difference in all areas of your life.

#2 Exercise Encourages Discipline

Along with boosting confidence exercise helps your practice grow because it requires discipline which translates to many other areas of life.

We discipline our mind and body to consistently exercise it encourages us that we can also discipline ourselves in other areas as well.

For example, following a system in your practice requires discipline rather than just shooting from the hip. If you consistently discipline yourself through exercise your brain will be more receptive when you choose to follow the steps of your systems.

Exercise discipline also translates to:

  • when you wake up
  • when you go to sleep
  • how you eat
  • what you choose to think about
  • your relationships

In many ways how you do anything is how you do everything and if you consistently discipline yourself to exercise it will have positive effects throughout your life.

#3 Exercise Reduces Stress

Getting in a workout, whether before work or during the workday can allow you to approach your work with a calmer mindset which is another way that exercise helps your practice.

In Chiropractic we know the impact that stress has on the function of the body. When we consistently exercise not only are we setting an example for our patients but we're also reducing our own stress which is key to making consistently good decisions in your business and life.

Exercise Doesn’t Have To Be Complicated

Exercising is really just about moving more. Whether you like to exercise in a gym, at home, hiking, jogging, swimming, surfing, or whatever. Even parking further away from the grocery store so you walk more can increase your physical activity. Taking the stairs rather than the elevator. Simple things increase your daily activity.

These are all things that we’ve all told our patients to do but do we do them?

Consistent exercise helps your practice grow. There’s no doubt about that. I encourage you to start moving more starting today and it can make a big difference in your life.
