Good Health and Business Success (Your Health Is Your Wealth)
Good Health & Business Success
Your Health is Your Wealth
Health and Work
Your health is your wealth! When you are working on growing your business or even working hard to get that next promotion, it is easy to put in long, hard hours and in the process neglect your health.
Health and Exercise
I get it! It is hard to eat right and make time for exercise, or even get enough sleep when you are working at least 9 hours a day. The problem is that by ignoring those healthy habits, you may be shooting yourself in the foot. Let us look at how your health and your financial success are linked.
What happens when you fail to take care of your health?
The link is easiest to see when your health is not where it should be. Think about the last time you had a bad cold or some back pain. Being fairly uncomfortable did not make it easy to get work done, did it? Chances are everything took you much longer because it was harder to focus. Your productivity started going down and you were more prone to make mistakes.
The sicker you get, or the more pain you are in, the worse the effects are. Even something as simple as a stiff neck or not getting a good night sleep will influence your work.
It does not take much to cut into your focus and productivity. Thankfully, the opposite is also true.
Small positive changes and healthy habits can help you get better at what you do and in turn, set you up for business success.
The Importance of Sleep
Getting a solid eight hours of sleep is one of the best things you can do to make sure you are ready for a productive day at the office. Mindfulness and Meditation can help improve the quality of your sleep and other areas of your life.
Going out for a brisk walk on your lunch break is a great way to combat the afternoon slump. Getting up and frequently stretching throughout the day not only avoids tension in your neck and back but also gives you a chance to think through your next task instead of doing busy work.
Maintaining Good Health
Start paying attention to your daily habits from your sleep schedule to what you eat and how much you move around. Start taking better care of yourself and your body. Take those vitamins, eat something that is good for you for lunch, and get in 30 minutes of exercise per day.
In short, cultivate some healthy habits and watch how it starts to change your body, your mind, and your business for the better.
You do not have to make this hard or difficult. Instead, start with something easy like going to bed at a certain hour or trying to drink enough water throughout the day. Work on one healthy habit at a time.
Stick with it, and it will not be long before you start seeing results.
