Entrepreneurs, minimize stress with these nifty tips.
As much as you love your small business, being an entrepreneur can actually be harmful to your health. From burning the candle at both ends to single-handedly running a company, you could be hindering your health more than you may realize.
It’s not surprising when you consider that entrepreneurs work longer hours than almost anyone else. Two-thirds of small business owners work more than 40 hours a week, and one in ten put in a staggering 70 hours or more.
With that said, it’s time for some (much needed!) relaxation methods to reduce your stress and restore your sanity!
Learn to say ‘no.’
This one is important. As a small business owner, there’s a misconception that you must do everything in your power to be successful. While that is sometimes true, there’s a fine line between being productive and running yourself into the ground. Don’t let failure be an option; learn to say ‘no’ before signing yourself up for more work than you can handle.
You employ a team of staff – so use them! Instead of putting more onto your plate, delegate tasks to your specialized staff and trust that they’ll get it done correctly. This works wonders in taking a huge weight off your shoulders.
Finally – a day off. Don’t check your work emails every five minutes or call into the office to make sure that things are running smoothly. Take a load off and relax! For maximum stress reduction, spend quality time with friends and family.
