We can give you 500 tips on how to improve your social, your branding, and your overall business model, but the truth is if you’re not taking care of yourself your business will suffer.
We asked our dear friend, Lexie Gray from Well From Within to talk about this very subject from a different perspective. As a small business owner herself, Lexie knows the battles we face as we try to build our brands from the ground up. It’s not easy (so KUDOS to you, friend!) and it can take a toll on you personally. We asked her to speak on this subject because as a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner and Certified Personal Trainer she’s the best qualified to get you on the right track!
How often do we sit down and think about how to care for ourselves?
You MIGHT be an entrepreneur if you chuckled at the thought. We have MORE than enough to think about as it is. Running a business, getting stuff done around the house, taking care of our families or pets… the list goes on and on!
There never seems to be enough time to do all of the things, and time for ourselves is typically the LAST thing we think about.
We’ve all heard the saying “you can’t pour from an empty cup” and although we know it’s true, we somehow still think that the rule doesn’t necessarily apply to us. Or maybe we don’t even know HOW to fill our cup!
So today I want to give you some ideas on how you incorporate self care into your everyday life so that you can be HEALTHIER & HAPPIER!
I know these changes don’t happen overnight, but if you start today working on one thing at a time, imagine how much healthier, happier, and fulfilled you’ll be in a year from now! My challenge for you is to pick ONE of these things that you’re going to focus on this month, and then BE INTENTIONAL about it!
Here are some example ideas:
I will go outside for five minutes every morning and five minutes every afternoon.
I will be in bed by 10 pm every night.
I will buy a meal plan and order my groceries every Saturday morning.
I will go for a 10 minute walk 3 times a week.
I will write down three things I’m grateful for every night before bed.
There are no rules about how you go about this, as long as what you’re choosing to do won’t stress you out MORE! This should be something that is easy and brings you joy. Start small, and once you see the improvements you’ll be motivated to continue to make these tiny adjustments that add up HUGE change in the long run.
Here’s to everyday self care, not just the kind that happens on Sundays. Be well, friends!
