Business Advice: Tips to Find Time to Take Care of Yourself

by Guest Author 21 August 2019 11:11

Most people find that there isn't enough time in the day. They wake up and rush until it is time for bed. Some people even bring their work home with them and put in a few hours after their family is asleep.

All of this isn't good for you. You need to find time to take care of yourself as a busy business owner. Here are some tips to help.

Make it a priority. You need to make the decision that self-care is going to become a part of your routine. If not, nobody else is going to make you do it!

Start small. It is hard to make changes, so it often helps to start small. Want to start exercising? Start by squeezing in ten-minute workouts. After a while, you may be able to fit in a few more minutes. Want to take time to relax? Take a few minutes every morning or evening. Eventually, you will be able to take a few more minutes every day.

Outsource some things. In order to make time for yourself, you may need to outsource some of your tasks. This can be business tasks such as paperwork, though you may even want to outsource some of your tasks around the home. Could you get some help to clean your home, so you have a few more minutes for yourself?

Or simply ask for help. If you are married, get your husband or wife to pitch in around the house. Have family that lives close? See if anyone can take your children for a few hours so you can really focus on getting things done (and having a little extra time for yourself).

If you don't make self-care a priority, nobody else will. Usually, by starting small, you will begin a routine until it becomes normal. Eventually, you will realize that it doesn't feel right if you don't take a few minutes for yourself in the morning or before you go to bed. In order to give yourself some extra time, you may need to enlist help or outsource some tasks.
