    Taking Care of You

    moderator_lee Tracker

      Running a small business can be rough. You have to oversee every aspect and worry about numerous things simultaneously at any given time.

       

      Be sure to take care of yourself so that you can take care of your business. We small business owners are notorious for overworking, in our attempt to give it our all.

       

      How do you plan in some time off for your own well-being? Are there any things you do throughout the work day or work week to help deal with stress and keep yourself at your best?

          This is a great question. It's hard sometimes when we're so hyper-focused on keeping things running smoothly that we forget to take care of ourselves. We're our own biggest and most important investment. It's important to remember to stretch, get up and move, and take "brain breaks" now and then.

           

          Beyond making sure we get up and move around every hour, staying hydrated, and moving away from the screen now and then, do you have any personal tricks for staying fresh and attentive during your business day? Do you have any recommendations for how to make sure you have an end to your business day, or do you consistently work long days?
