Fit to Lead – The Importance of Self Care

It’s no secret that managing stress and taking better care of ourselves plays a huge part in both our professional performance and our overall wellbeing. And one of the most proven paths to wellness is physical fitness.

According to Dr. Uche Odiatu, a General Dentist from Toronto who is well known on the dental conference circuit for his talks on wellness and fitness, being physically fit helps everything in your life work better. In fact, it has been shown that memory alone improves by 20% in the 2 hours immediately following a workout.

In conversation with Dr. John O’Keefe, Director of Knowledge Networks CDA, Dr. Odiatu explains how we can all include fitness in our lives, no matter how busy our schedules are.

“When it comes to exercising, simplicity is everything,” he says. “Easy, doable, effortless workouts that can be done daily.”

Dr. Odiatu also cites studies that show that as little as 5-7 minutes of interval training per day, where the intensity is alternated, is as good or better than one hour of steady state training.

So come on, what are you waiting for?
