As entrepreneurs, it can be easy to fall into the trap of working all the time and with little to no downtime.

In order to combat the stress of the busy entrepreneur lifestyle, it is important to find some ‘me’ time.

What is Self-Care?
Self-care is the practice of taking action to preserve or improve one’s own health.
There are many aspects to self-care. There is both mental and physical self-care, and oftentimes they intertwine.
Physical self-care includes how you’re fueling your body, how much sleep you’re getting, how much physical activity you are doing, and how well you’re caring for your physical needs.
Physical Self-Care Examples
Mental self-care is just as important as physical self-care and should not be overlooked. Mental self-care involves activities that help declutter your mind and reduce your stress levels. Taking care of your mental health can seem difficult when life gets busy with work, especially as an entrepreneur. By scheduling time each day to care for your mental health, you can reduce your stress and improve your overall happiness.
Mental Self-Care Examples.
- Practice mindfulness
- Take a break
- Play video games
- Listen to music
- Read a book
- Listen to a podcast
- Reflect on things you are grateful for
Self-Care for Entrepreneurs.
As an entrepreneur, we can easily overlook taking care of ourselves and instead put all of our time and energy into making our businesses successful and keeping clients happy. We pride ourselves on working long hours and barely leaving their desks. If you have ever found yourself still hunched over the computer in the wee hours of the morning, and suddenly realized the only thing you ate that day was coffee and maybe a snack, then you know exactly what I mean.
What if I told you that you need to fuel yourself in order to fuel your business?!
It can be a hard lesson to learn, but as a business owner, you need to carve out space to take care of yourself.
It’s time to start managing your well-being from the inside out, starting with a good helping of self-care. Launch into a better, happier, healthier you.
Here are a few strategies for taking care of yourself while you take care of business.
- Create ‘me time’ in your daily routine
- Learn to say no
- Nourish your body
- Make sleep a priority
- Enjoy a hobby
- Ask for help (this one can be the hardest!)
