Exercise Helps Balance Work & Home — Dave’s Diary

Seems the theme of the day for me today is exercise—motivation and excuse.  Here’s one for the motivational column.  Exercise can help with the work-life balancing act so many of us deal with today.  That’s the word from researchers at Saint Leo University, Saint Louis University, University of Houston-Victoria and Illinois State University.Conflict between work and home can be categorized in two ways. Work interference with family describes typical job-based pressures that can lead to interference of family time. Family interference with work is when personal issues find a way into the workday and compete with work time.

How best to achieve that ever elusive work-life balance has become critical and one of the best ways to do is to exercise.  Science says that exercise affects how we feel about our work-life balance.  Researchers found that individuals who exercised regularly were more confident they could handle the interaction of their work and home life and were less likely to be stressed at work.

Feeling stressed out? Work out. Feeling Bummed out? Work out. Feeling left out? Work out.  Anybody seeing a pattern here?
