4 Simple Tips to Help Entrepreneurs

Get The Sleep They Need for Success

Start Your Own Business

By fAVIOLA VALENCIA-ARANDA

Are you losing sleep due to your small business goals? Well, you could be derailing your efforts to reach those goals faster. Sleep is crucial for your health and wellness — and even your success. So, here is how you can help yourself get more of it.

 

Your Tech Could Be Keeping You Up

 

Being a successful small business owner often means being attached to your laptop and smartphone. But if you make a habit of bringing those devices into your bedroom, you could be disrupting your sleep quality. The bright blue light emitted from cell phones, computers, tablets, and televisions prevents your brain from producing the melatonin needed to fall asleep soundly and stay there for enough time. Getting those devices out of your room is a good first step to enhancing your sleep levels. While most tech should be banished from your bedroom, some smart devices are actually made to help you sleep. If you have problems getting your business to-do list out of your head, using a noise machine can help calm your brain, or you could look into a vibrating alarm clock so you are not jolted out of your dreams by noise.

Quality Sleep Is Key to Your Success

In business, a busy schedule is prized. However, if your schedule as an entrepreneur is getting in the way of your sleep hygiene, you could be impacting your success.

 

You need sleep in order to focus on getting your business up and running and to keep yourself healthy enough to do your best every day. So, freeing up some of that work time for more sleep can actually be more beneficial for your business.

 

If bouts of insomnia are keeping you up, know that sleeplessness is common among entrepreneurs too. All the emotions and thoughts that are racing through your head can make it hard to wind down, even when you schedule to sleep. If you cannot get the seven to eight hours you need every night, at least take steps to improve your sleep quality. Keep your bedroom cool and dark so you can get the most out of the rest you do get.

 

Your Night Routine Plays a Critical Role

Even if you get your tech out of the bedroom and schedule time for sleep, it still may not be enough.

 

Your nighttime habits before bedtime affect your sleep quality as much as what you do in your bedroom. Try winding down your work assignments earlier and getting into bed so that you can get an earlier beginning to your day.

 

If your usual nighttime routine includes checking emails and answering phone calls, you may need to adjust those practices too. In order to get the rest, you need to be successful, you have to guard your personal time.

 

Set out-of-office hours that will give you time to unwind before crawling into bed. Doing so from the start will help you maintain that positive balance between your work and life as you become more successful.

But Your Health Routines Have an Impact Too

The way you care for yourself during the day matters just as much too.

 

For example, many entrepreneurs reach for the most convenient food and beverages to keep themselves going. Before you reach for that high-fat snack, however, you should know that it could end up keeping you awake.

 

More fat and processed foods in your diet can lead to disruptions in necessary sleep processes, as well as digestive issues that can make you too uncomfortable to sleep. An imbalanced gut can lead to an upset stomach, constipation, and other problems that can make it harder to sleep. So, think about meal prepping some healthier options, and also consider getting in daily workouts, which will help you sleep better too.

 

Sleep is not an option, especially if you hope to start and run your own small business. Your brain needs sleep in order to focus and get those crucial business tasks done. So, if you are looking for long-term sleep as an entrepreneur, make sure that better sleep hygiene is listed on your shortlist of life and business goals.

Best Health apps of 2019

fitness app

Some two-thirds of American adults’ new year’s resolution included fitness goals. A shocking 73% gave up on their objective. It’s no secret that staying active and eating healthily while juggling chaotic work and home life is not easy. However, it’s disheartening to know that under a quarter of Americans are satisfying the recommended amount of weekly exercise — just 150 minutes.

That’s under three hours of exercise per week, which isn’t a lot in the grand scheme of things. Even just 30 minutes of jogging or running per day could make a difference in your life. Living a healthy lifestyle will make you feel better and improve your overall quality of life.

That’s why the Bestow team picked the 12 best fitness apps for 2019. With these smartphone applications, you’ll be so inspired to work out that you’ll look forward to it. Keep scrolling for the highest-rated health and wellness apps.

We break down the prices and features of the top apps in the following categories:

  • Weight loss
  • Running and cycling
  • Strength training
  • Competition and gamification

The Keys to Total Fitness for Busy People

The Keys to Total Fitness for Busy People

 

For most people, fitness brings up images of running at the park or lifting weights at the gym to have a slimmer waistline and bigger biceps. However, you could have both of those things and still live in abject misery if you don’t take the whole body and mind into consideration. That sounds exhausting, as well as time-consuming, which means it probably won’t fit into your busy schedule. Think again and take a look at what you need to do and how to make it work.

 

Enjoy Your Exercise

 

As one celebrity fitness coach tells Shape magazine, “there’s not one magic workout schedule that will make you burn fat and build lean muscle.” So what do you need? A bit of cardio and a bit of strength training. Activities like team sports, ultimate Frisbee, and yoga meet those requirements. Choose something you like and the fun will keep you coming back for more.

 

Take Some “Me” Time

 

It’s perfectly okay to spoil yourself as it may do you some good. There’s no reason for this to be expensive or time-consuming if you’re willing to think creatively. Imagine an at-home spa where you and a friend take turns giving each other hot rock massages followed by skincare treatments, all while sipping on your tea with relaxing music playing in the background.

 

Learn to Eat Healthfully

 

That exercise isn’t going to do much good if your lunch comes from a taco truck. It’s time for a change, but cooking brings up images of slaving over a stove for hours on end while your tummy grumbles. Banish the thought because you don’t need much time to cook balanced meals, and you’ll save a lot by doing your lunch in large batches that you put in the freezer then pull out later to fill up a Tupperware container that you bring to work.

 

Stay Hydrated

 

There are many people who don’t drink enough water, and the consequences for their health are dire. If you’re one of them, there’s an easy solution: Bring it with you wherever you go and take regular sips when you’re thirsty. You may have read that you need eight glasses a day, but there are very few doctors and fitness instructors who agree with that assessment, as the correct amount depends on your size and how active you are. Just pay attention to your body.

 

Spend Time Outdoors

 

You need sunshine; otherwise, your body can’t produce enough vitamin D, which is vital to warding off conditions such as osteoporosis to depression. That’s just the beginning when it comes to the benefits of nature, says a writer with ZLiving. In numerous studies, the outdoors been shown to improve people’s mood while helping them focus, and all it takes is a lunch break outside. You can also get the fresh air by drinking your coffee outside in the morning.

 

Meditate to Find Calm

 

Have you got five minutes? That’s enough for a mindful session that will not only calm your nerves but give your self-esteem a boost and put you to bed on time. There’s little mystery as to how it works: By slowing down your breathing and focusing your mind on your bodily sensations, you cut short the “fight or flight” response and engage your parasympathetic nervous system, which slows down your heart rate and gives you a relaxing reset.

 

Practice Your Hobby

 

Sometimes all you need is something to look forward to at the end of the day, and activities such as playing the guitar, knitting scarves, or painting portraits deliver that and a whole lot more, says lifestyle website Your Zen Life. Becoming skilled at a hobby naturally makes you more confident while also sparking the creative side of your brain.

 

It does take some effort fitting these activities into your schedule, but it’s worth it if you value your happiness and sanity. Reflect on what you do with your time, then make a few adjustments. You can fit them in.
