Success is a goal that all entrepreneurs are chasing, but it is important to keep in mind that a truly successful person is also a healthy person.
Spending all day in front of the computer can be detrimental to your health, both physical and mental.
As entrepreneurs, it is all too easy to get caught up in the constant work-life since you work for yourself.
This makes it crucial to give yourself a break from screen time and work in general to take care of yourself.
Here are 7 self-care habits of highly successful entrepreneurs:
7 Self-Care Habits Of Highly Successful Entrepreneurs
1. Daily Exercise
Exercise is crucial for both your physical and mental health.
Not to mention, it is a great way to work off stress and get your body moving after significant time spent in a sedentary position while on the computer.
Many entrepreneurs find themselves strapped for time to workout, and there are many ways you can work around that to make sure you fit a proper workout into your daily schedule.
For example, you can fit in a walk and stair circuit followed by a HITT workout. For
effective and tailored workouts that you can do anywhere, anytime, check out apps like 30-Day Fitness Challenge app.
2. “Me Time” Every Day
Whether you can fit it in for a single minute or 20, some ‘me time’ is essential every single day.
Take time to simply do whatever it is you need in your day.
3. Prioritize Sleep
We all hear that sleep is essential to good health, and this is very true.
Getting quality rest is essential for your body to be able to recover and set you up for success the next day.
Sleep is one of those parts of life that you will really notice if you are lacking in.
Remember that no amounts of caffeine and pushing forward can compensate for a lack of quality sleep!
4. Eat Well
What you put into your body can either nourish your body and give you ‘fuel’, or simply be something you eat but not get much benefit from.
Prioritize eating well so that you get proper nourishment from your meals and don’t run the risk of eating out consistently (something that many entrepreneurs admit they do too often).
To help you save time and energy, meal plan and prep! This helps make sure you always have a healthy option.
5. Both Mindful And Present
To be mindful is to be in the present moment and ‘tuned in’.
Meditation is a great mindfulness practice that you can use during even the busiest of days to ground yourself and bring yourself back to center.
There is a significant and distinct difference between the feeling of being grounded and of feeling as if you are disconnected and scrambling.
It is a difference that you will feel in both body and mind the more you practice it.
6. Healthy Work-Life Balance
Work is exhilarating and rewarding as an entrepreneur, but everyone needs a work-life balance.
Highly successful entrepreneurs often share about their times that work was the priority on a ‘need’ basis, but that life never got fully put on the back burner.
It is all about balance and sometimes work might demand a bit more, but your life should never not be a part of that balance.
7. Rest And Recharge
Everyone needs time to rest and recharge, and that goes for entrepreneurs as well!
Take a day of rest once in a while and you’ll come back with your ‘tank’ filled up and ready to work!
This also helps to avoid burnout, which entrepreneurs are quite susceptible to if they do not implement tip #6.
