If you’re an entrepreneur, chances are you put in long hours. One in three small business owners works 50-plus hours per week. And 86% work on the weekends. Always being on the job, burnout, and juggling work and family are just some of the top challenges hard-working entrepreneurs face. It’s time to take care! With these self-care tips and wellness giveaway ideas, you (and your employees) can keep it Zen.
- Prioritize fitness: Daily exercise keeps weight off and combats fatigue. It can also improve mood, increase energy and promote better sleep. But did you know there are work benefits too? For instance, it can increase productivity, boost creativity and improve focus. You can even grow your professional network if you work out at a gym or studio. So hit the pavement, go for a swim, or play a game of tennis. You can also get fit almost anywhere with the help of YouTube® fitness channels. Get your team involved with Exercise Mats, athletic T-shirts, and a list of your favourite YouTube workouts.
- Unplug: Take time every day to completely unplug from work. Turn off your ringer, shut your laptop and have some “me” time. Use this opportunity to read a book, take a bubble bath, meditate, or spend time with family and friends. Block your calendar so everyone knows your “do not disturb” time. And encourage staff to do the same. Wellness giveaways, like Zen Candles and Zen Essential Oil, are great reminders to decompress.
- Eat right: Eating a balanced diet can help you maintain energy, stay focused, and keep your mood in check. Yet healthy eating tends to fall by the wayside when we’re busy at work. Combat unhealthy habits by taking time to meal prep balanced lunches and keeping a stash of snacks on hand. These Koozie® Rectangle Food Containers make prepping and packing lunches easy. Order them for your entire team to promote healthy eating at work.
Practicing good self-care is an essential trait for small business owners and their hard-working team. These tips and wellness giveaway ideas can help you and your staff stay healthy—mind, body and soul. Here’s to keeping it Zen!
