You may be great at running your business, but are you any good at taking care of yourself? More than any other group of people, entrepreneurs are notorious for pushing themselves to the limit, burning the candle at both ends and not listening to what their bodies are telling them. When you don’t have a line manager, and everything you’re working on is to set up your future then working long hours and barely leaving your desk can begin to feel somehow normal. You’re under a huge amount of self-generated pressure to succeed, learning new things, trying to bring everything together and make it work and desperately aiming to become profitable while keeping calm. The important thing to realise is that for an entrepreneur, health IS wealth. You are the engine of your success. Your creativity, vision, ideas and hard work are what makes your business. If you neglect your health and become seriously ill, then your business will be damaged in the process. So making time for self-care isn’t just a smart investment – it’s a necessary fundamental of running a successful business. If you want to build a long-term career and company, then you need to prioritise your own mental and physical health, even during the busy times. 

Make Me Time A Part Of Your Schedule 

For every business fundamental, you have an allocated slot in your schedule. Time to create a marketing strategy. Time to brush up a client pitch. Time to go through the accounts and prepare a business tax return. The same has to be true of your health – you need to create an allocated time and stick to it. The key is to be clear on what relaxes you – for some it could be fitting in a 5k or a game of squash, others will find it in reading a few chapters of a great book or even playing video games. Some may benefit from using a daily mindfulness app. Find whatever works for you and make it a religion to honour that small slice of time for yourself.

Sort Out Any Minor Issues

Just as you would try to identify any business issues quickly and sort them out before they escalate and cause damage, so you must take the same approach to your health. Instead of ignoring that sore back or the onset of insomnia, it’s a good idea to get them checked out by your primary care doctor. Perhaps it is just nothing, but if it isn’t, treatment will be a lot quicker and more effective if you tackle the problem head on and early. 

Fit In Some Exercise

 
It can definitely feel like the last thing you have the time for is exercise, but keeping active is a form of health insurance for entrepreneurs. The right sport makes you mentally and physically stronger – allowing you to be more productive and focused at work. It also helps to keep you healthy, lowering your risk of multiple diseases and keeping your immune system primed – and when you don’t get paid to take a sick day, that’s a pretty big deal!

Four Ways To Fire Up Your Love Life

Four Ways To Fire Up Your Love Life

Whether you’ve been in a marriage for a long time and want to give your love life a boost, or you simply want to revamp the way that you’ve always done things, your libido needs a bit of help. With work being so busy, raising a family and having an actual social life, there’s always an excuse not to reconnect with a lover behind bedroom doors. There are so many things that you can do to boost your libido so that you can get your sex life back on the right tracks that it’s always been on.

Exhaustion, stress and a lack of time can really affect the sex life of a couple, but sex is such an important way to connect on a level that is more than friends and more than just partners. It’s a mind, body and soul connection and when you’re too tired, it’s like someone has hung up the phone and the line is broken. Getting that line back up takes time and a loss of sex drive is only a problem if you believe that it is. Don’t panic though; there are plenty of things that you can do to boost it back up and get those bedroom fires burning again.

Sleep. This may seem like a counterproductive way to get your sex life back but burning the candle at both ends can really take a toll on your sex life. Testosterone has a big role in the male libido and a lack of sleep can reduce the levels of testosterone in you. Extracts like Tongkat Ali can help you to get your testosterone levels back up again. Try not to sleep less than 5 hours a night, regardless, as this is not healthy!

Eat. Everyone knows the sensuality in bringing food into the bedroom, but did you know that there are certain foods that are an aphrodisiac? Figs, bananas, chocolate and avocados are such aphrodisiacs, as are oysters and wine. These all provide the right minerals and vitamins for your health.

Confidence. Sometimes, confidence – or lack of it – is a big passion killer. If you don’t have confidence within yourself, you won’t feel in the mood and you can doubt your own attraction. No one can tell you how you can get rid of the low self-esteem, but you can shift the focus from your own worries to the things that you like about yourself and blow those up in your mind.

Sobriety. A big reason for a flop in the bedroom is too much alcohol or the overuse of drugs. By going sober, you can remove the toxins and chemicals from your system and be the au natural being that you want to be!

Getting the fire back in the bedroom is going to take some time, but if you take a moment to work out what is going wrong and communicate with your partner, you can move forward and slide back into that healthy sex routine you’ve always enjoyed.
