Female Entrepreneurs’ Journey To Success Begins By Taking Care Of Herself

 

Wouldn’t it be great if you could get through your busy day with a plethora of energy that allowed you to have an active social life at the end of it all? Consider this: you walk into the room, feeling healthy and commanding attention with your high energy levels. Or, you rarely have to take time off from work to contend with the aches of pains of life or some type of sickness.

How great would that be if you could do this? How would you feel about life if this happened?

It’s imperative to give your body the right kinds of food and plenty of exercise to have these and other benefits. While it seems simple to have the best health and body, it’s not as easy as one would hope! Your business and body are two different entities, and every female entrepreneur should have the right fit for them.

• Have you been saying you don’t have time for the gym or exercise?
• Are you complaining that you can’t plan a healthy meal when you’re on the go?

Believe it or not, you are not alone. Many people who own a business feel they don’t have time to do these things, especially female business owners. They tend to make decisions that sacrifice their good health for the sake of the business, saying they’ll contend with the health and fitness aspect when they have more time to do so. Even those of us who work in the health and wellness arena can struggle with these tasks!

However, putting off to tomorrow what you could do today is actually causing you to lose the energy and health you have for your business.

The reality is this: your body and your business may be different entities, they are still linked. If you’re not feeling good, who will be in charge of the business? If you’re not feeling confident about your body, how can you feel confident in your business? If you don’t have the drive and discipline to look after your health, how will this look to potential customers and clients? Your business is affected by your health, which means your health should be your top business priority.

Through my social media pages, I have shared my story many times. My own health took a nose dive after having my 3rd child who was born with a few chronic health issues. I already had 2 children who were under 4 at the time, so trying to get used to these new changes and grow a business – well, it was a recipe for disaster. I ended up with adrenal fatigue and was completely burned out.

The thing was, I wanted to keep working, so I had to re-think how I could do it all. Working on my personal health goals is helping me to achieve my targets and grow this beautiful business. If I didn’t take my health as a priority, I wouldn’t be able to manage my workload effectively.

As a female entrepreneur, especially as a mum, wife, etc we have to create a crystal-clear idea of what we want.

We are used to goal setting, we know it’s important so we have to think about goals that help us meet this vision.

The problem that is most women fail to do this for themselves and their bodies. Sure, you may have a wedding to attend or a charity race you want to get involved in, but why should you limit yourself to those times to reach your health goals.

Do you have a vision of how you’d like to feel? I know that you have time restraints but there are a few things you can do to achieve this vision.

~ Write down a list of healthy meals that you can whip up within 30 mins (that’s literally my maximum)

~ Drink more water, aim for at least 1.5 litres a day. This includes herbal/fruit teas

– Give yourself a break from the computer and step away from the desk

~ Simple and effective exercises that you can do at home. There’s a recommendation of 10, 000 steps per day, so, you could get a treadmill, use your stairs, do some yoga/pilates. There are lots of tutorials for beginners on Youtube

~ One of the best pieces of advice I can give is to have a decent breakfast, have fruit and veggies on hand, pre chopped

~ Don’t buy junk. Really, it’s that simple. If you don’t have it in the house, you can’t eat it

~ I also recommend The Healthy Entrepreneur eBook available in our shop, it will help you in setting your wellness goals and hold your hand through the changes.

~ If you are still struggling and prefer some 1-1 help and support, contact us, we have a network of holistic practitioners who can help you to get your health into a better place, support you with meal plans and products to support your goals.
