Entrepreneurial Self Care: Don’t Sacrifice Health for the Wealth

I think in the entrepreneur/business world, hustle is often promoted even at the expense of taking good care of health. As if you’re going to be more on your game when sleep deprived, eating fried greasy food, and out of shape? I don’t buy into this myth and I think if we’re honest with ourselves, we know we can’t be as productive when we neglect health.

In the case of someone like myself who has a lot of restless, creative energy, but is given to distraction, exercise and eating healthy isn’t a luxury I can worry about once I’ve “made it.” It directly correlates with my mood and my performance at work.

My mind and my ability to problem solve is infinitely better when I’m physically active. This is one reason that I recently built myself a standing desk. And I work increasingly more on my phone.

The old days of making excuses for sitting around because I work in digital are obsolete.

I sit here typing this post on the locker room bench in the gym inspired and fueled by endorphins after a workout which followed a busy morning of prospecting on LinkedIn DM, follow up calls, and closing a new client.

No doubt in mind, this will power me through the rest of the day. This is the BEST way to start the morning and the week! 💪
