Also, the same research states that on the days when the people who participated, did some form of sport, they felt more tolerant and positive towards their colleagues. Therefore, exercise improves relationships in the workplace and plays an important role in shaping the morale of the employees themselves.

Employees could choose whether they preferred to work sitting at a regular desk or work while walking at a low speed on the treadmill. At first it was observed that the performance of the workers decreased, but then the results were amazing as the performance of the participants increased significantly!
5. IT IS NOT ONLY USEFUL FOR THOSE WHO DO SEDANCY WORK:
