My name is Jeremy Geffen. I am the President of a management company for musicians and other talent. In addition to running my company, I also act as a consultant to Gene Roddenberry productions and am working on two unscripted television series and three scripted series. Yet I still make time to include an exercise regimen in my daily life.
Exercise is important in many ways. Naturally, many people immediately think about the physical benefits, of which there are many. Exercise helps you manage your weight and also fights health diseases and conditions. Individuals who stay active can lower cholesterol levels. People who are active are at a lower risk for strokes, type 2 diabetes, and some types of cancer and arthritis. Regular exercise increases stamina, which helps maintain energy through the day. The body learns to become more efficient with its energy supplies as it gets accustomed to regular aerobic activity. Finally, regular exercise also tones your muscles, giving you a healthier, more attractive appearance.
However, exercise is also beneficial for your career. People who exercise sleep better overall. Additionally, exercise is a great stress reliever. While people are concentrating on their exercise, they forget to think about stressors. And though it may sound contradictory, people who exercise have more energy than people who don’t. When they are done exercising, they enjoy the feel-good effect of released endorphins. Physical activity can improve mental clarity and focus, enabling people to perform at their very best during the work day. Finally, and perhaps most importantly, exercise improves an individual’s overall mood as it stimulates certain brain chemicals. Exercise is one of the best treatments for depression.
I urge you to begin an exercise regimen today and join me in reaping many of its benefits.
