10 Ways to Stay Healthy While Running a Company
When you’re working to build a business, it’s easy to put your own needs aside so you can devote as much time and energy as possible to making your venture succeed. But neglecting your own well-being is just as bad as taking your eye off the numbers or forgetting to follow through with projects.
Even in the midst of running a hectic business, you have to take care of yourself. Though it might seem strange, self-care should be an important business goal. If you allow unhealthy habits to seep into your life, you’re probably also letting your productivity slip.
Along with the demands of your business, you need to make sure your health stays a priority. Follow these 10 important tips to keep yourself (and your company) in tip-top shape and you'll continue to thrive along with your business.
1. Check in with your mental health.
Running a company often requires long hours and hard work. Unfortunately, this can lead to the perfect storm of feeling overwhelmed, stressed and isolated. You may feel so busy and focused on work that you don’t even realize that these feelings are taking a toll on your mental health. It’s important that you stay connected to your feelings and do regular mental health check-ins.
One option is to start a bullet journal. Journaling can help you gain clarity on your emotional state and identify a pattern of harmful behaviors.
