Women Business Owners, Do You Watch Your Health?

As women, we generally do everything around the house. This means we clean, cook, take care of the children, and we are business owners. This can lead to very busy lives for most of us. This can mean we have very little time for ourselves.

It’s not good when this happens, because it can lead to burn out or we can get sick. With that said, it’s better to plan time for you at least twice a week. It’s also a good idea to plan at least a one week vacation during the year. It doesn’t mean you have to go anywhere, but you should keep your computer off during those seven days.

There are many ways you can take care of yourself and you won’t have to spend a lot of time doing it. You need to find something you enjoy doing and then make sure you do it on a regular basis. Here are a few ideas that will help you find things you enjoy.

• Exercise

Exercise can relieve a lot of stress. It can also be very enjoyable. Walking outside is something that is easy to do, it’s free, and it can be very relaxing. The sun light, fresh air, and the sounds of birds chirping help to relax you and bring your spirits up. If walking outside is not an option, there are many other things you can do inside. You can go to your local mall and walk around for an hour. Another option is to purchase exercise equipment such as a stationery bike or a weight set. There are DVD’s you can purchase as well or you can purchase a Wii fit and exercise with that each day.

• Beauty Salon

It’s always relaxing to have your hair and nails done. Make an appointment today to have your hair styled and have a manicure while you are there. Not only is it a very relaxing place to be, but it can be a place to make new friends. You will feel great when you leave and you will be ready to start your daily tasks again. If you can’t afford to go to the beauty salon have a friend or family member come over and you can give each other a new hair-do and a manicure.

• Vacation

As business owners, we sometimes feel like we can’t afford to take time off because our business will fall apart. There are ways around this issue. Getting away from the computer and the stress of your business is important because you don’t want to start taking it out on your customers or clients and you surely don’t want your business to go down hill.

If your email has an out of office reply on it, use this to your advantage. Set it up to send out a message every time someone emails you. Another option is to hire someone to check your email on a daily basis and reply to everyone that sends a message telling them you will get back to them when you return. Either way you need to notify your customers or clients of your plans so they are aware of it from the beginning.

No matter what you do during each and every day, it’s important that you take time for yourself. Your health is the most important thing and taking time for you, will help it stay its best.
