If you are a small business owner you are very intimately involved in the lives of your employees and your business. You eat, breathe, and sleep your business. You probably work more than the average American. 50, 60, 70 hours per week, and you’re always on call.
Many times as an owner you get so caught up in the daily grind of your business that you barely have time for yourself. Business owners should take some time to improve their fitness each day.
Here are 3 reasons for a business owner to implement a fitness regimen.
1. Time away from work.
Tell me if this sounds familiar. You work on a project all day and are unable to really progress. So you go to bed, and wake up and you’re able to knock out the remainder in no time.
Taking time away from all of the work allows you to refocus when you get back. Fitness is one of the best ways to take time away from your work, refocus, and balance out your mindset.
2. Improved mental focus.
Exercise gets neuro transmitters firing. You’re more focused, more energized, and ready to take on the rest of your day after you’ve done some training.
3. Improved mood
As an owner, nothing stresses your employees or customers out more than having a sour mood when you’re interacting with them. Exercise has a profound impact on your mood. It increases dopamine which helps to improve mood and keeps you happier through the day.
Give yourself an hour per day for exercise and you will see a marked improvement in your ability to perform your daily tasks
