Self-Care for Entrepreneurs Starts with Getting a Good Night's Sleep

self care sleep tips for entrepreneurs
Starting your own business and being successful obviously takes a lot of hard work and dedication. But one of the most important things it requires, is taking care of oneself. Entrepreneurs constantly have their minds on their businesses so often, that often times their health can fall to the wayside.

Missing meals, restless nights, stress; all these can cause health issues down the road. In order to be successful, business people should keep their health in mind. Getting a good night's sleep is vital to a healthy lifestyle. Studies have even shown that sleep deprivation costs U.S. companies more that $63 billion a year in lost productivity. Here are some nighttime/morning routine tips to get better sleep and therefore, have a smoother morning.

Stick to a bedtime


Setting a bedtime is super important to helping get a good night's rest, but this comes with a few challenges. Most people think it's a success to make it into bed at a certain time, but then they start surfing the web and a few minutes turns into a few hours past their bedtime. We've all been there, but don't let this be you. Stick to your bedtime and actually go to bed. This will help you get into a routine and get more sleep.

Prep the night before

Mornings are tough, but don't make them any tougher on yourself. Preparing for the next day before bed is a great way to have mornings run smoothly. Wasting time changing an outfit three times or looking for keys when you should've left already is no way to start the way. So make a lunch, iron your shirt, and lay out your shoes the night before, so you're ready in no time. Who knows, maybe you can even use the time saved to snooze in a little more once you get a rhythm down.

Have the perfect sleep environment

There are certain bedroom designs that are optimal for sleeping. If you don't believe me, try sleeping in a bright room with sheer curtains. To get the best sleep so you can have a productive morning, make sure your bedroom is a relaxing color like a soft blue or green that is meant to calm you down. Also a comfortable mattress and sheets are essential, so get some that are best for your personal comfort. If you are looking for options, Leesa Mattress has some great online mattresses and Parachute has a wide variety of sheets. But no matter what kind you have, make sure they feel like they were made for you.

Make mornings positive


You know when you have those days where you are already in a bad mood before you even get out of bed? Maybe you have them everyday, but what if you had something to look forward to in the morning? A nice cup of your favorite coffee, a TedTalk about positivity that you've been meaning to watch, or maybe it's just writing in a journal before you leave. Having something positive about your morning can really get the day starting right and wake you up too. Starting the day on a positive note can help bring up your productivity.

With just a few of these simple tips you can get a good night's rest and make your mornings run smoothly. By changing up a few of your habits, you'll be sure to get more sleep and in turn be healthier and more successful. Do you have any night time/morning routines that work for you?

7 Things That Affect You and Your Life

7 Things That Affect You and Your Life Recently, I stumbled upon a motivational website online where I read an article titled ‘5 Things That Affect You and Your Life’. It was a great piece of work by the publisher but I think the writer omitted two important points which will be analysed in this post. Living a life is sweet when things go well our ways. Nobody wants to live a rough or frustrating life. Life as said is sweet nevertheless the sweetness cannot be enjoyed without facing some challenges. These challenges come your ways to test your level of resilience and ability to resist any pressure. When challenges come our ways two things are surely to happen which tend to lead us to the result. The first thing is whoever faces the challenges and stays firm to overcome the challenges will enjoy the result after the challenges. The other option is, whoever runs away to stand firm to face the challenges then has thrown away the unseen benefits he or she should have enjoyed in the futur…
