In order to succeed in business you need to have an affinity for people and how to solve problems. The single minded pursuit of success often puts people into such stressful circumstances that their health starts to flag and their body starts to wear down. We turn our attention to Joseph Bismark, founding Director at QI Group, and his commitment to keeping wear and tear away from his life by focusing on physical activity and mental health. Joseph Bismark landed a featured spot in asPire Magazine, as reported by Reuters, and he shared some tips on how to stay at the top of your game for as long as possible.
When people say that they ‘stay active’ they usually mean that they try and go to the gym a couple of times a month while avoiding most big bad junk foods. When Joseph Bismark says he stays active, he means that his life follows a regimented routine that focuses on inward and outward progression. Bismark fully believes in the positive nature of holistic health and wellness and he has made sure to put many different applications of it into his day to day life. But he doesn’t just rely on Eastern practices to stay in game shape, he also employs a rigorous physical routine.
In order to stay physically toned and active down to his cardiovascular system, Bismark focuses on cycling, swimming, and utilizing kettlebells. While these aren’t revolutionary means of fitness they are terrifically effective at creating endurance and a toned figure while working out every muscle in the body. Compare this routine to the standard bodybuilder and you will see just how divergent the two paths are. Kettlebells are ball like weights with handles on them that are swung around in different patterns in order to attack different muscle groups. Cycling is one of the most common form of exercises and swimming is one of the most intense workouts available.
Yoga makes up a big part of Bismark’s life and can probably be thanked as the biggest reason for his zen like approach to business and life in general. Bismark is a Yoga Master at the Singapore School of Meditation and Yoga where he serves as a teacher and as a student. Bismark’s pursuit of Yoga is never over and he is constantly adding new twists to his daily routine, allowing himself to continually stay busy and employing new growth.
