The Most Important Business Resource Is Health And Fitness.
We often take our health for granted. When people are in their teens and twenties, it’s common for them to not even think about health issues or to neglect proper nutrition, exercise, and sleep. As they get older, this neglect may catch up to them, resulting in deteriorating health.
Certain habits will lead to declining health; it is often too late to recover once brought to light. Poor health will rob you of energy, quality of life, and ultimately your business. As an entrepreneur, you can’t afford to neglect your health.
From the start, you should be developing good health habits. Just as you have developed a solid plan for your business, you need to have an effective plan for your well-being. You need to be proactive with your health. This means taking time away from work to exercise, eat healthily and get enough sleep. Developing good habits takes time and conscious effort.
Start by writing down your goals on paper. What fitness level do you want to achieve? How are you going to exercise? What healthy foods are you going to eat? What time do you want to get to bed and how long do you want to sleep? Don’t put too many goals on the sheet of paper, otherwise, you’ll get frustrated or discouraged.
Next, implement your plan. There are many reasons to exercise regularly. One goal should be exercising every morning. As a rule of thumb, it takes 21 days to develop a good habit. Over the next 21 days, make a graduated effort to exercise.
Start slow and set realistic goals. For the first few days, consider it a success just to get your gym clothes on. Gradually work up your exercise regimen from there. Don’t get obsessed about personal performance, focus more on consistency. Have a simple goal for that day and make sure that you have made an effort to achieve that goal.
Another factor that can help is accountability. Make sure that you have talked to another person about your goals. Whether that person is a spouse, relative, friend or co-worker, as a result, they can be helpful in reminding and encouraging you to continue with your plans for self-improvement.
The investment in your health will pay you dividends in the long run. You will enjoy increased physical energy, enhanced mental focus, and more effective handling of stress. Don’t ignore your well-being until it is too late. Be proactive. Take time out to take care of yourself. The most important business asset is your Health.
