You may think that exercise is just something that you should do to keep yourself healthy in your personal life. The connection between exercise and physical activity is pretty obvious in lots of areas of our lives. But what you may not know is that exercise is even important when it comes to generating leads.
Exercise helping my sales opportunity improves? Sounds unbelievable, how does that work, you are probably asking yourself. Well here’s what some recent studies found:
• Exercise Increases Energy and Relieves Stress: Studies have shown that daily exercise is actually more effective than virtually any medication when it comes to overcoming stress, anxiety and depression. A daily jog or a simple twenty to thirty minute routine can refresh the mind and body and little is more important when it comes to lead generation and sales than having a positive, energetic attitude.
• Exercise Helps Improve Cognitive Skills: People who exercise regularly and keep up an active lifestyle find they have an easier time processing information and making uncovering difficult to see connections. These are just the kind of skills you need in order to come up with new leads and new opportunities. Often where we fail to come up with leads is in imagining new places where we might find possible sales opportunities. Exercise can help foster these creative skills.
• Improving Memory: A strong memory is also very useful in building relationships because being able to remember the details about a specific client’s business and personal life can help not only improve your relationship with that client but also to look for more leads in that client’s circle of influence.
• Daily Exercise Also Matches With Better Social Opportunities: Studies have also shown that those who exercise daily tend to have larger and more fruitful social relationships. There are two reasons why this is the case: Being fit and active is an attractive quality to those around you and gives you the inner confidence to feel comfortable in most any social circle. Secondly, it turns out that just the act of going out to a gym and being actively involved in physical activities and sports with a variety of others from different walks of life, gives you an excellent place to make new connections and network. There are few places these days where you can come into close contact with so many different kinds of people.
