Healthier Habits and Team Collaboration Influence Business

of your mind and body but can also affect overall health. Make sleep a priority, and you’ll be surprised at the change.

While many people are thinking about love for Valentine’s Day, it’s a good reminder that self-love is equally consequential, especially for your businesses. Working late hours, shouldering responsibilities, and skipping meals take a toll on your body and, in turn, begin to impact your performance. As business owners, it is crucial to remain in top shape to ensure you and your business are running as smoothly as possible. What You Should Focus On Your health is important. When you aren’t sleeping enough, giving yourself mental and physical breaks, or eating properly, it starts to impact your work. Make sure to stay sharp throughout the day by doing the following: • Eat healthier. If you don’t have time to create meals during the day, try making lunches or dinners the night before or sign up for a healthy meal delivery service. • Take a break. Overworking leaves you tired, stressed, and your mind sluggish or overwhelmed. Take breaks through the day or go for a short walk to clear your mind. • Sleep 7–9 hours each night. Lack of sleep not only impacts the function

When you’re eating healthier, sleeping better, and giving your brain a break, you’ll come to work energized. You’ll feel more enthusiastic about your goals and achieve better results. Relying on Your Team Being the only person your team relies on for specific information or actions can hurt your business. When the weight of your business lies on your shoulders, it means sick days or vacations are out of the question. Additionally, you will feel more stressed and even short-tempered, which can impact the rest of your team. Hiring a reliable assistant and team allows them to take some of that crushing responsibility off your shoulders, freeing more of your time. Instead of having to do everything in the company, you have the freedom to pursue further business and attract more clients while your team produces quality service. This month, take some time to think about ways you can better yourself and your company by forging better habits and increasing team collaboration. TAKE A BREAK
