Is Exercise Right Before an Important Task?

Posted Nov 30 2009 10:01pm

For people with ADD, procrastination and how they move forward managing a task can be a challenge. Exercise has proven to deliver many physical, emotional, mental and over all health benefits. One of the key benefits also achieved, is the increased production of endorphins and dopamine.

So consider this; if we derive such benefits from endorphins and dopamine and one way to achieve this is exercise, does it not make sense to consider scheduling tasks we need to accomplish after exercise? Exercise can be a simple as an easy walk around the block or as much as a 10km run. Once our brains are stimulated by endorphins and dopamine, it starts to get those neurotransmitters firing. With that, we think clearer and naturally combat some of the challenges of ADD.

There are also some great food sources for dopamine including almonds, avocados, bananas, dairy products and lima beans. Give it some thought and maybe it might be worth a try to exercise, before you start on one of your tasks that need to be accomplished.
