The new year is the perfect time to create new habits for success as a woman entrepreneur. Notice I said habits, not resolutions. Resolutions easily spin out of control and become too grandiose to implement. Selecting a few key habits to create is vital to affecting change in your daily routines, and the year to come. Instead of writing a list of suggestions, I have decided to be transparent and list the new habits I have committed to in 2017. Hopefully they will make sense for your life or spark ideas that will create positive change in your day-to-day life as a female founder.
Don’t forget to list how you will implement your new habits…otherwise they will live on your to-do list instead of on your done list.
Habit #1 Drink More Water
It sounds silly but drinking water has numerous health benefits. It increases energy, relieves fatigue, promotes weight loss (see Habit #2,) flushes out toxins, improves your complexion, boosts immune system functionality and is a natural headache remedy. I don’t know about you, but running multiple businesses, taking care of my family, and juggling a social life as a woman entrepreneur leaves me with some massive headaches. How am I implementing this habit? Every time I am at the gym I drink my entire Swell bottle of water and then drink another on the drive home.
Habit #2 Listen To Podcasts
A recent study showed that 63% of wealthy people listened to audio books or podcasts during their commute. It makes sense and is time-efficient, so I have committed to feed my brain by listening to EO Fire and The Foundation. How am I implementing this habit? I download a podcast before I go to the gym and listen to it on my way home. The adrenaline high coupled with inspiring stories and advice help me start my day with energy and new ideas for my business.
Habit #3 Exercise More
I saw an Instagram post that said, “I will love myself enough to make time to exercise.” In my break-neck schedule I sometime skip workouts to finish projects or sleep in. Reading that post reminded me that I need to take care of myself more. Did you know that 76% of wealthy people exercise 4 times per week? How am I implementing this habit? In addition to my beloved Megaformer classes, I have added MMA training on Mondays and hit the elliptical machine at my house 5 nights a week.
Ultimately, putting your health first is a fantastic way to get your year off to the best possible start. Of course, besides drinking more water, and making time to exercise, there are other steps that you can take to improve your health too. For example, a friend of mine has found that using products containing CBD has had a huge impact on her health this year.
Apparently, there is a lot of research to suggest that CBD has several health-boosting properties, and therefore if you are interested in adding some natural products to your healthy living toolkit, you might want to consider giving some CBD products a try. Not sure where to begin? Just take a look at these Blessed CBD capsules, or you can head online to check out the wide range of products on the market at the moment. Many online dispensaries offer plenty of choice and can give great advice on what might work best for you – some people enjoy oils, some people enjoy gummies and some people find things like these high voltage extracts work for them. Above all, as with any herbal remedies, remember to always speak to a doctor before trying any products containing CBD as not everything is suitable for everyone.
What are your resolutions for the coming year? Will you be focusing on your health and fitness? Let me know your thoughts in the comments.
Here’s to a new year full of prosperity, opportunities, and good habits ladies!
