Your personal well being may sound like a simple enough concept, but many individuals do not appreciate its true value and the impact it has on your career? It is no mystery that many business owners put work before their own well being, but doing so may put the success of their company at risk.
Running a healthy and productive business starts with taking care of one’s own personal wellbeing. Long hours sitting in front of a computer, talking on the phone, and maintaining a company’s revenue stream can take a toll on the human body. There are limits to what the body can handle and withstand. Taking time out of your day to focus on your own personal health and wellbeing will not only benefit yourself personally, but it can directly impact the success of your business. One might look at it, as a cause and effect scenario, where your own personal well being is directly linked to the well being of your company.
Productivity does not mean pushing yourself to the brink to accomplish a task. Rather, productivity should be sustainable and in no way is pushing your body to the brink a sustainable way to live or work. The body is capable of great things, but it also needs time to recharge and heal from long days of strenuous activity. This activity does not always have to be physical to be draining, mental strain can cause enormous amounts of stress and can have a direct impact on your overall wellbeing. Your lack of mental wellbeing can be easily transferred to your work and to your fellow employees, who rely on your ability to maintain a constructive and a positive work environment.
There are many ways to maintain your personal well being and one of the best ways to accomplish this is through physical exercise. After being in a sitting position all day long, indulging in simple exercises can help tremendously. This can include going to the gym, a long walk through your neighborhood or even an adult league of some kind that incorporates social and physical activities. Just getting your mind away from the office will keep you fresh and on point for the future success of your business.
