Barriers to exercising/healthy living that entrepreneurs face
If you aren’t taking care of your body, you won’t be able to take care of your business. One of the most common barriers to exercising and healthy living for entrepreneurs is limited time. Some business owners still work a 9 to 5 or are solopreneurs and have little flexibility in their schedule. Planning your workouts is key. Map out some time dedicated to health management and self-care.
Take a step back and make sure to hydrate and get plenty of rest. A lot of business owners gain weight because they sit at there desks all day with little to no mobility. This can all be avoided with the right meal and fitness plan.
Benefits of exercising
Start with creating a fitness plan that works with your schedule. The benefits of exercising on a regular basis reduced stress and give you more energy to accomplish daily tasks. When you exercise you release endorphins which in turn allows you to be more focused, more productive, and have more clarity in your business.
One easy fix to lack of physical activity is to sneak in workouts throughout the day. Add squats, kickbacks, and small workouts to your daily activities. Take time to stand and stretch.
