Why well-being & business management go hand-in-hand

Being an entrepreneur and owning a business is time consuming; if you aren’t mindful, it can impact negatively on your well-being.

The following factors promote positive well-being.

Morning routine

Having a morning routine is important.

Structure to begin the day brings familiarity and sets the tone for each day; it gets you in the zone. Everyone will have their own routine that works for them, but some good things to consider
including in yours consist of:

  •  Morning meditation
  •  Going for a walk or exercising
  • „ Reading something for 10 minutes
  • „ Having breakfast with your significant other
  • „ Checking emails before getting to work
  • „ Avoiding emails and social media until after a certain time.

Non-negotiables

This is a term to describe aspects of your routine that you cannot compromise on.

Setting non-negotiables for yourself is a great way to stay in tune with your life outside the business. Examples of non-negotiables include:„

  • Always leaving the office by 5pm on a Friday
  • „ Not checking emails after 9pm
  • „ No working on a Sunday
  • „ Making it home for dinner each night
  • „ Tuesday night is always date night with your significant other
  • „ Leave work as to not miss special occasions for your children.

Diet and exercise

The importance of diet and exercise on your mental health is undeniable.

Exercising in the morning helps prepare your body for the day; it gets you focused and provides you with the energy you need for optimal brain functioning. Alternatively, exercising in the evening
helps your body switch from work to relaxation mode. Diet is also important; you should think of what you consume in the same logic.

Gratitude

Business can be stressful, which can take a toll on your mental health and well-being. This can see you make poor financial decisions, or lash out at staff and clients. A great way to combat this is
to express gratitude. Once you develop a gratitude ritual, it will become more natural for you to practice. A simple way to express gratitude includes sitting quietly for 5 minutes at the start of the day and listing all the things you are appreciative of.
