7 HABITS OF A HEALTHY ENTREPRENEUR
Being a successful Entrepreneur is not an easy task as you are responsible for your own business 100% and that requires your total involvement especially if its a start-up. As a result most of entrepreneurs have found themselves going to the extreme side of hard-workaholic and forget to live the balanced life style.
Well, ere are seven things that an entrepreneur can do to stay on top of his/her business and health.
1. Learn something new every day.
Healthy entrepreneurs are lifelong dreamers. They work hard, play hard and think harder. They love to read, listen to audio books and absorb as much knowledge as they possibly can. Not only do they educate themselves about topics relevant to growing their business, they also seek knowledge about what it takes to be healthy. They know healthy behaviors have a direct impact on their business.
2. Set goals and create systems to achieve your goals.
A Healthy entrepreneur also understands that knowledge without application is the quickest path to failure. He or She will go beyond learning – He or She applies what has been learned. Because they realize the day-to-day journey and seemingly tiny steps are the only ways to achieve their end goal.
3. Spend “downtime” wisely.
The average person spends around 3 hours a day watching TV. Don’t be that person. To stay healthy, focus on staying busy building your business, taking care of yourself and your family and trying to change the world. One recommendation is to meditate or take time to write down your goals.
4. Make exercise a priority.
A healthy body will help cultivate a healthy mind. According to The Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans, adults should get 2.5 hours a week or more of moderate-intensity aerobic activity and two strength-training sessions per week. Even if you’re crazy busy, find at least 30 minutes here and there. It will help with alleviate stress and get those endorphin pumped up to take on startup challenges.
5. Eat less junk food.
Think of food as fuel: The higher quality fuel you put in your tank, the better you’ll perform. You don’t need to diet or cut foods out to eat healthy either. Just eat more real food — stuff that comes from nature — instead of processed junk and fast food. By doing so, you could help improve your energy endurance (no sugar crashes) and mood, among other benefits.
6. Sleep more.
All entrepreneurs experience the grind of late nights, early morning meetings and last-minute deadlines. But a healthy entrepreneur knows that sleep is vital to his or her success. Whether you rise early and tackle your important projects first thing in the morning or you’re a night owl, find a consistent sleep routine and stick to it. And never
7. Create balance in your life.
Healthy entrepreneurs treat health as a lifestyle. You can’t put a Band-Aid on a bad business plan, just like you can’t eat healthy for a week and expect to lose weight. Successful entrepreneurs wholeheartedly embrace healthy living: They work smarter, not harder. Entrepreneurship and health go hand-in-hand. Each will teach you valuable lessons about the other.
Aside from family, friends, and relationships, there are few things more important in your life than your health and your career. When you passionately pursue both of these things you can experience a longer, more fulfilling life.
