Insights from Dr. Chase Feiger on the Importance of Physical Activity for Mental Recharge

September 8, 2023

In today’s fast-paced business world, a growing body of research suggests that the continual demands on our attention can lead to burnout and decreased productivity. But it’s not just about taking a break; it’s about the quality of the breaks we take.

This doesn’t mean watching TV or reading a book, both of which still deplete our cognitive “fuel tank.” Instead, it means engaging in physical activities, which not only recharge our brains but also contribute immensely to our overall health. As we navigate this discussion, let’s hear more from Dr. Chase Feiger, CEO at Ostro, who has made these findings an integral part of his daily routine.
