How to Decrease the Stress of Running a Business
With everything business owners have to do every day just to get the job done and make our clients happy, it’s almost impossible not to have stress. Since it’s just a fact of life, the better we can deal with it, the better it is for all of us - including our employees, families and friends! Here are some simple ideas that have been proven to help.
Take care of yourself: get plenty of water, healthy food and enough sleep. If you’ve been stuck at your desk, get up and move around, stretch or take a brisk walk (outside in the fresh air is best). If the stress starts to build, exercise more often – it really is proven to help your brain manage stress.
Also remember to keep in touch with your connections, business and personal and not just via texting and email. Meet with people to help keep you refreshed.
Of course, you can make things easier for yourself by creating business systems and using them. And, at the end of the day, act like it is the end of the day. There is always plenty more to do tomorrow. You may have to say no to a demanding client or a difficult employee but it is important to set boundaries and to take care of your needs.
