Building a successful business requires a lot of hard work and determination. As an owner and a manager you need to be an example to other employees by working long hours, pushing yourself to the limits. However, is that really a healthy lifestyle? I would guess no, right?

You are putting your business in danger with not prioritising your health. Many healthy entrepreneurs have found a way to be successful while keeping their personal health and wellbeing in check.

If you want to make a change and work on improving personal health and wellbeing, you’ve arrived at the right place. Here are a couple of tips to help you achieve a healthy body!

Exercise

Sounds familiar? How many times has your doctor advised you should exercise at least 3 times per week? If you have only listened to your doctor, then you would have been already familiar with the benefits of physical activity and won’t be reading this. Yet, your schedule has been so full, you had no choice but to ignore his advice. Wrong!

Lack of physical activity will bite you sooner or later, both mentally and physically. So make the time, shift your priorities and put your health first!

Do you know Elon Musk? Of course, you know him! He has the best habits that make a successful entrepreneur. In his weekly 100 hours work schedule, he finds at least 3 hours to run on the treadmill or lift weights in his office. That’s the perfect example of how to run a successful business and still find time for exercise. No excuses, you hear me?

Healthy Diet

I bet you know this one as well. However, I am pretty sure you just snacked something full of saturated fats. Did you know that even the smallest changes in your diet can make a big difference? For instance, giving up on sugar-based beverages and replacing them with water is the best way to lose weight? Plus, you will feel more energised and can work more!

Oh, forget about McDonald’s and KFC. They are not even cool anymore. From now on, you will swear by veggies and fruits, and eat whole grain bread. No more white bread for you! Moreover, consuming foods that are rich with fibre will make your metabolism faster.

These changes in your daily menu will prove you how lifestyle choices affect personal health and wellbeing. Giving the right fuel to your body will help unleash the full capacity of your mental and physical capacity, making you a better entrepreneur.

Take Breaks More Often 

Look, I know how much your business means to you. But, you are not helping it by jeopardising your health. That’s why taking more breaks are required if you want to reach your goals. Find the time to regenerate your body and soul. If you don’t take a break, you will lose your mind. Three days to a week are needed to regenerate a manager. If you feel tired, give yourself one more week. Or, to avoid extended vacations, take more breaks at work, and a couple of days off regularly. Never stay in the office for more than six hours, and try to eat launch outside. A little fresh air can calm the nerves.


Work out a Routine That Works

 

You already have a schedule, but is it synchronised and coherent with your needs and biorhythm? It might be suited for your managerial team, but if it only tires you and lowers your productivity, what’s the point of it? Sit down and work out a routine that works best for you. When the day is mapped out specifically to your requirements everything will seem more straightforward. Completing tasks and having meetings will be easier than you thought. And you will be surprised that you free time still existed and you no longer will have an excuse to neglect your family or your hobby.​

Find Mechanisms to Manage Your Stress

Well, you cannot avoid stress. But unfortunately, stress is the main factor for psychological as well as physical problems, so you need to find a way to manage it. How? We come back to exercise once again. Half an hour a day spent in jogging, lifting or even walking increases the production of serotonin, which ultimately lowers stress levels. Also, if training does not help, try meditation, or you can always look for professional guidance. Nothing to be ashamed off, every prominent entrepreneur has its own shrink. Together you will get to the bottom of your problems and find mechanisms to combat your issues.
