India is already a member of the exclusive club of obese nations, with around 5% of its population affected with this malady. The IT and tech workforce takes a large and unhealthy slice of this 5%. Definitely, you don’t want to be one of them.
In this post, I’m sharing with you a few things that we provide at Evoma to our startup and SME businesses and entrepreneurs, that helps keep them physically and mentally fit and strong.
According to a study by a team of researchers from the University of Bristol and Leeds Metropolitan University, workers who spend 30-60 minutes exercising at lunch see an average 15 percent increase in their performance level. On the days they exercised, sixty percent of employees reported an improvement in time management skills, mental performance, and the ability to meet deadlines.
What is the first thing that comes to your mind when you think of your office and workplace? Maybe it’s the ambience, your colleagues, boss, the location, food, and so forth. But health and fitness is usually not on this list.
Apart from the regular physical benefits like weight gain, blood pressure and the cardiovascular impact, evidence has surfaced from recent studies which point to another, more immediate benefit – the impact on the way you think. The amount of exercise you get at your workplace impacts the following cognitive benefits:
- Improved concentration level;
- The quickness of mind – razor sharp memory;
- Improved grasping power;
- Fewer instance of Mental fatigue;
- Rise in creativity level;
- Drastic reduction of stress; and
- Improved positive emotional state.
Our mental alertness is directly related to our physical regimen and nowhere else is this implication more relevant than to our workplace performance. There is scientific evidence to prove that exercise during the regular work hours spikes workplace performance.
- The study on the influence of daytime exercise, by Leeds Metropolitan University, among office workers with access to a company gym, reports employees managing their time more effectively, increasing their productivity, better their relationship with colleagues and going back home a satisfied person.
At Evoma, we understand this concept of health and fitness regimen during work hours very well, and that’s what inspired us to go the extra mile in providing our businesses and entrepreneurs and all their employees with these dedicated facilities:
