How Your Health Impacts Business Building

Reading time: minute(s)

What does this have to do with business building?  I am an advocate for health and wellness in both, my personal and my business life.  I cannot seem to get enough…so bear with me as I rant about it in this blog:)

It’s the new year and this is when 95% of the population decide to make an effort on being healthier.  But the sad part of the story, is that by Jan 20th…they often give up.

When it comes to your busy schedule, how often do you find yourself forgetting to eat or to even drink water?  And do you feel like exercise never really gets on the agenda?  Do you ever find yourself tired in the middle of the afternoon or falling asleep at your desk?

Instead of making a resolution for your health this year…what about making it a revolution!    For me, eating healthy and working out regularly 4-5 times per week is part of my weekly routine.  Even when I travel, I make sure to switch to my ‘health and wellness on the go’!  Here’s the thing…it’s not as much work as most people think, it’s really just a mindset.  It’s a matter of making small habit changes over time…and sticking with it.

When you stay healthy physically and mentally, your business will be healthier too!  What do I mean by that?  It’s about balance…your body, mind and spirit need to be rejuvenated on a regular basis.  Without regular attention to your health, your business can suffer.  Here are a few tips to keep you healthy and positively impact your business building at the same time.

1.  eat healthy as much as possible…even if it means small snacks through the day…sorry guys…this does not mean…drive thrus!  Prepare on Sunday for the week ahead.  And for quick meals, most grocery stores carry healthy food to go.

2.  go to bed at a reasonable time…quality sleep ensures you keep up with the demands of both, your personal life and your daily business activities.

3. get moving…find a regular exercise routine that works for you!  It might be going to the gym, yoga class, team sports, running or walking…but it’s gotta be right for you.  I have a home gym, so I can choose when I work out!

4.  try meditation…even a 5 -10 minute time-out can do wonders for your energy level and bring you fresh ideas to your business building.  Guided meditation really works best for me!

5.  get social…make a point of getting to know people…it does not have to be all work related…a friend’s nite out or social event can do wonders!

6.  don’t forget to tap into your sense of humor…getting work done is serious business, but it does not mean you cannot have fun in your business environment.

I hope these few tips help you get going for 2012.  Think revolution and involve others! Feel free to check out an easy and simple health challenge that includes nutrition, exercise and coaching all in one, called the e84 Challenge.  Who knows, it may be exactly what you’re looking for.

Go for it…make this an amazing new year of 2012!  Wishing you all the best personally and professionally!
