How can busy professionals or small business owners maintain good health?
How can you eat healthy on a crazy schedule? Let’s dive in.
I get it, you are busy. You are going to be on the road pretty soon to honour a last minute appointment, or maybe you are just going through your next PowerPoint presentation, and you can’t wait to engage your audience with your world-changing ideas. Maybe it that much needed sale or sign up.
But what about your health?
It’s funny how we never think about it –even though we can’t literally live without it.
But don’t get me wrong. I know what you do is hard work, and you are not going to stop anytime soon. I know it can be fun and fulfilling.
But I also know that chasing the dream can make you struggle with juggling the important things between work life and personal life —most especially, your healthy lifestyle.
Even as we entrepreneurs slay dragons daily, there’s only so much we can juggle, and I know that you want to do something about it. Yes?
So what’s a time strapped go-getter (like you!) to do?
Life has this sneaky way of creeping in on us and throwing hurdles left and right. There’s always going to be a busy day at work. There will always be that one phone call or circumstance that resets all our plans for the day or relationship highs and lows —even bad hair days!
What all of these have in common is that they veer you away from keeping a sane and healthy lifestyle for yourself, but now is a perfect time to find the needed balance.
Going cold turkey and making sudden whole life changes can make any one goe crossed eyed and break out in a sweat.
Yet, you can commit to small changes and see huge differences.
Practising the self-care habit helps you avoid health issues that keep you from working , performing at your best and enjoying a full life.
So even it is just getting a multivitamin or eating healthy on to go snacks or meal replacement bars , it can go a long way to restoring a bit of balance to your mind, body and soul.
… and not to mention the sanity to the hectic life of an entrepreneur.
But first, what’s your primary health goals?
Take your time… Write them down.
You can add your primary beauty goals while at it…
Whatever it is you come up with, you will love the fact that you can easily create your daily health and beauty regime, improve your energy, focus, strength, mood, vitality. Plus a lot more.
And it doesn’t matter if you have a huge stack of workload on your work desk or if you are on the clock!
Living a healthy lifestyle determines what happens, now , in your midlife and beyond. But, it won’t happen unless you make the right choices which include making a daily health goal and sticking to it and you will set yourself on the path to success.
We seem to always seek comfort food or we just don’t feel like breaking a sweat in the gym. The grocery stores seem too far, plus what is the sense of buying groceries when you seem to busy to cook. Right?
However, unhealthy junk food along with other poor lifestyle habits are the things that take us further away from keeping and maintaining a clear and balanced body and mind.
We need to manage our moods and energy levels on a day to day basis to ensure we start the day right and perform optimally throughout the day.
…instead of crashing by mid afternoon
So what do we do when we can’t seem to stay true to our health goals? Especially when work-life smacks us in the face and it happens to every busy entrepreneur so if you’re reading this, you’re not alone.
Ignoring your work life is not reasonable either. But figuring out how to navigate through and squish your health goals somewhere in your daily routine is all you need to stay healthy in 2019 and beyond.
Believe it or not, being active and get that heart pumping just 15 mins a day or 30 minutes , 3 days /week can make a huge difference.
If you are like me, it just easier to make some of your current tasks a lot more activity focused such as :
- Parking a distance and walking
- Running rather than walking up the stairs
- Get a standing computer desk, so that you are not sitting or standing all the time
- Foot exercises while sitting to improve blood circulation
The point is, if you schedule you time in, and make it a priority, it will get done, now that you understand that YOU are your best business asset. Consider this, WE are OUR Habits.

Always remember; your health is your wealth. A healthy entrepreneur is a wealthy entrepreneur, literally. You may think of a top business mogul who owns lots of wealth, but their health problems trouble them every day.
What is the point of all this wealth if you cannot enjoy it?
The money spent on doctors could have been used in other better avenues such as financing more business ideas and making the world a better place.
Similarly, ever thought of how quick an employee gets replaced at work? They probably passed on and the job vacancy goes up no sooner than the sad news of their demise is told.

Now you can be on both sides of the fence, being a fulltime employee while building your business. The stress levels at times could break the barometer.
Your cortisol levels can then play havoc on your immunity system which can then lead to inflammation and lastly pain then …
Therefore, it is very important that you take care of your health. It is with this in mind that we’ve have creahealthy and convenient options which would be based on your lifestyle.
This includes healthy snacks, meal replacement bars, protein bars, and even an app that acts like your personal coach for weight loss.
The meal replacement bars or proetein can provide healthy on go lunch and snacks for the busy entrepreneur especially when closing the month end sales volume or collaborating with the team for the next goal or rank. What about the project deadline for a client?
How many times have you forgotten to eat breakfast, lunch or dinner? If I asked how many glasses of water did you drink today, what would be your answer?
With all that goes on, your self care can get buried under the to do list, yet if you want a fulfilled and sustainable business, you have to ensure your daily habits include some you time.
You will not be at your best nor even make good decisions. Yes, your health can become a liability in your business that you simply cannot afford.
I can tell you when I was on my bed unable to even walk to the bathroom without feeling like my heart was about to pop out my chest and the dizzy spells.
Trust me, it was not a good feeling being labelled as critical at the hospital while the doctors tried to figure out whether my heart or kidney was failing.
Did I mention the stress was causing acne break outs and other skin issues. I was in a mess and the business, was on a halt. I just could not deal with.
Thankfully, now I have learnt to put systems in place that work even when I am not able to focus on it.

Whether you are a fulltime entrepreneur or building your business while working a job, the demand on your time can be overwhelming. It can be difficult to keep a perfect schedule when you have to out unexpected fires and meet deadlines.
You might be thinking, I just have time or ability to fit in healthy daily habits. As a business owner who tool over a year to get over some serious illness that left me unable to operate my business, an almost lose my job simultaneously, I am asking you to think differently.
Please note, that if you die right now, the business depending on the structure will die right along with you. But what if you were alive but bed ridden? I certainly felt a bit like that during my ordeal.
Even if it’s just the small things like eating better, planning for those time crunch scenarios, being active even 15 minutes, 20 minutes or 30 minutes a few times a week. This can go a long way to improving you sleep, mood, energy levels, clarity, strength and focus.
