Looking After Yourself - Your wellbeing matters
There is a LOT going on in the world right now and running a business is tough for so many with so much uncertainty and variables that are completely outside of your control. This means that looking after yourself and your own well-being is more important than ever.
Look at the boundaries you have in place around your business - think email, social media - are you always on and always available? Try to step back outside of your core working hours will help you to switch off. I know that when you run your own business you want to be there when people have questions, but get into the habit of responding only during normal work hours.
Having a good night's sleep can make a huge difference to how you feel when you need to face a difficult day. It's a well-known fact that scrolling on your phone in bed and the blue light from this disrupts sleep patterns so turn off your phone earlier in the evening and try reading a book for 15 minutes when you go to bed instead.
Get away from your desk every day, you don't need to suddenly start marathon training but take a break and go for a walk, have a stretch and don't look at a computer for 30 minutes or so. Being outside and taking note of the things we can see and the sounds we can hear is calming for the nervous system and can help with resetting your day.
Drink the water - we all know it is good for us, but being hydrated helps our brains to function.
TALK TO SOMEONE
If you are struggling in your business then talk to someone - you aren't the only one and knowing that others are having a quiet week etc won't make the sales come in but will definitely make you feel less alone - community over competition every single time.
