“Health is wealth” may be thrown around to the point that it has become somewhat of a cliché, but there is endless truth to this particular cliché. If you’ve found some measure of success in business, nobody knows of the importance of maintaining your health more than you do.
Sure, your astuteness probably has you working on building operational structures that will separate you from needing to maintain a sustained effort in order to make a success out of your business. For now though, you need to balance all the effort you put into your enterprising endeavours with the maintenance of the source of your sustained energy to continue putting in that requisite effort – your health.
Taking Care of the Bare Basics
The bare basics of staying fit for business success constitute eating healthy, making sure to find time to exercise (both physically and mentally), and getting adequate rest. Prioritise the mapping out of a detailed schedule and plan to cover for these requirements, ASAP and get going with their implementation immediately.
The longer you wait to start, the harder and harder it will get to try and “catch up.” Instead of looking for excuses for why you don’t have the time or resources to cater to these bare basics, rather find ways that fit in with your busy schedule, like perhaps fitting in a fixed-schedule session with an online fitness coach. That way, you simply cannot use the excuse of having to drive to the gym as a possible, horrible reason for falling off.
Aligning Your Lifestyle with Your Business Endeavours
With the basics making for a good base on which to build your approach to maintaining your health and fitness for business, you’ll do well to complete the equation by shifting your focus onto making your health and fitness routine part of the day-to-day intricacies of your daily life, particularly your professional life as someone involved in business. If you start small you’ll realise how easy it can be.
Ultimately, whatever line of business you may be in, it all boils back down to catering to the lifestyle needs of the people you share this earth with. Find a way to marry the two, in so doing one doesn’t need take anything away from the other.
For instance, unloading heavy boxes, a task which may be delegated to your ground staff, could very well replace your daily resistance training session in the gym, couldn’t it, all you micro-manage the situation in that way.
That’s just one of many, MANY practical examples.
