3 Easy Ways to Maintain Your Health as an Entrepreneur
Okay, here we are. Blog post uno. Remember how I said in this episode I wanted to starting writing more for She Did It Her Way, welp I’m doing it. My goal was to publish two posts in the month of March but it looks like I will be posting one. And hey! That’s okay! I’m so excited that I’m getting at least ONE out instead of NONE. 20 minutes of working out is better than zero minutes of working out, right?
Life lately has been a bit crazy - in a good way. Although I can’t help but ignore the amount of stress my body has physically and mentally endured. From back to back Europe trips (while it may sound glamorous I was over there for work and the days were super long and required a ton of energy. None the less, still grateful for the opportunity), managing business banking accounts, to planning a wedding, still maintaining a workout routine, it gets to be a lot at times. I have no doubt that many of you if not all of you can relate to what I’m talking about!
Meditating has been a game changer for me. I can tell a major difference when I do and don’t do it. It makes me calmer, helps me focus on the task at hand while being present and my mind is so much more at ease. I use the Headspace app because it guides me through different mediations from being healthy, focus to creativity. If you’re someone who is unsure of meditation, I get you.
Before I started I was super resistance to the idea of sitting in silence for 10 minutes and wondering how in the world it was going to benefit me. What I can tell you is that if you can get your mind in the right place before you do anything for the day, your day will be in the right place. Try 10 sessions for free with Headspace. <---this is what I use and love it ;)
SWAP OUT FRUITS FOR VEGGIES
Say whattt? I know, crazy right. Almost every morning I have a smoothie and it wasn’t until I started following Lee From America that I was inspired to replace my banana and mangos with frozen cauliflower and avocados. Did you know you can actually build up a resistance to bananas? I didn’t. While my smoothies now aren’t as sweet as before, that’s okay. I’m more focused on maintaining consistent energy levels throughout the day so I can get more work done and not crash.
TAKE YOUR VITAMINS
With traveling a lot, changing time zones, it can put a ton of stress on your body, physically and emotionally. Sometimes you don’t even know it. About a year ago I noticed my energy was always low, I felt drained all the time. I’m a healthy eater for the most part. If you ask my close friends they may tell you that I’m too self aware of my body but that blog post for another time ;) so I was utterly confused as to why I was feeling this way.
My friend Stephanie Grutz, who came on the podcast, and whom I trust is a holistic nurse practitioner, prescribed to me probiotics (for gut) and adrenal fatigue pills. As women our adrenals play a massive role in our energy levels and indirectly impacting our ability to get sh*t done. Steph is amazing and has her own line of vitamins which you should check out! (and no, this is not sponsored, I just love and trust Steph :D)
