If You Want To Run A Thriving Business, You Need To Take Care Of YOU FirstJun 16, 2022
We all know that it's important to care for ourselves, but the reality is that most of us are so busy that we don't have time to take care of our own needs. You may have heard the phrase, "You can't pour from an empty cup." In other words, if you don't take care of yourself first, you won't be able to run a successful business. You’ll burn out.
One of the biggest mistakes entrepreneurs make is that they don't say "no" enough. They're so eager to please, so eager to grow their business, and so afraid to “let go”, trust others, and take care of themselves, that they take on more than any one person could possibly handle. And then they become so overwhelmed, that they can’t keep up, and it leads to enormous stress, frustration, and exhaustion.
Here's the thing:
There's no such thing as a good day when you're overworked and overwhelmed.
And there is no way to scale and create a sustainable business, one that lasts 5, 10, 15 years… and remains healthy and happy… if you are overworked and overwhelmed.
Take time to take care of yourself
Carving out time to take care of yourself is essential. When you block time in your calendar every day to take care of yourself through exercise, yoga, a walk-in nature, meditation, or some bodywork like a massage, you are building the reserves that give you the energy you need to grow a sustainable business AND be happy and healthy at the same time.
I think it's important to remember why you started your businesses in the first place: To be your own boss, help others, and do something you love doing. If you're not taking self-care breaks, and finding some ease in your days, you won’t love your business or your life. And, perhaps ironically, you won’t be as productive because you are running on fumes.
Carve out time for some self-care every day. — because being busy and overwhelmed all the time is not sustainable and it’s not healthy. You deserve better!
