To succeed in business you need to be firing on all cylinders. In fact, you could say that the health of your business is a reflection of your own health. If you are tired all the time, or run down with frequent bouts of colds and flu, suffer frequent headaches or if you are at the mercy of IBS, can you really be functioning at your best?
Health is more than just an absence of symptoms. When you are healthy in every sense of the word (physically and emotionally), you will have more stamina and energy to deal with the stressors of business life; mentally you will have clarity of thought and direction, the ability to solve problems quickly and your memory will be more reliable; you will feel more motivated and less irritable; health will also mean that your immune system is strong to safeguard you from colds and flu as well as more serious illnesses.
If you’re feeling tired-all-the-time, or low motivation, it could well be as a result of your body needing to be stronger and healthier.
Your health can be affected by many factors including:
- Food choices
- Depleted nutrition in foods
- Cellular health
- Negative emotions
- Lack of exercise
