The Impact of Fitness and Health on Your Business
Tai Feb 13, 2016
It’s easy to overlook the importance of proper fitness and good health when building a business. There’s no two ways about it: you’re more likely to put your entrepreneurial endeavors above all else; even the way you look and feel.

But I can hear you saying, “How do you find enough time to workout, eat right, and take care of your body when you’re working long hours and building a business?” Believe it or not, it’s not nearly as challenging as it sounds.

Before we talk about how to better focus on fitness and health, I want to share something with you: you can’t take your business to the next level if you’re mind and body aren’t “up to speed.” You’ll break down at some point, and when you do your business will suffer.

Now, let’s examine a few things you can do to improve your approach to fitness and health, thus having a positive impact on your business.

Always Remember the Benefits

With less than five percent of adults participating in 30 minutes of physical activity each day, it’s only natural to continue down this path.

I know what you’re going to say: “Everyone else is skipping their workout, so why can’t I?” Well, the answer is simple: because you need to perform at your peak if you’re going to reach all your personal and professional goals.

Set a Schedule

When you have a schedule it’s much easier to stay the course. You know when you’re going to the gym. You know when you’re taking a run. You know when you’re sitting down to eat your next healthy meal. This isn’t something you’re required to do, but it’s something I strongly suggest. A schedule is often the difference between reaching your goals and falling short.

Find a Partner

You can turn to a friend, family member, spouse, coworker, or anyone else in your life. Or, do what I do and find a new partner as often as possible. Ask them if they want to workout with you, as this is a mutually beneficial relationship. When you’re pushing each other, there’s a greater chance of enjoying positive results.

Build a Team Around You

Just as you can’t do anything alone in the business world, the same holds true for your health and fitness. I have a hand-selected group of medical and fitness professionals that share the same goal: to keep me in tip-top shape. These people include:

     1. Primary care physician 
     2. Nutritionist
     3. Dietician
     4. Personal trainer

Each of these people has a different responsibility. My primary care physician is the person who “points” my overall health and well-being plan. My nutritionist and dietician make sure I’m putting the right food into my body. And of course, my personal trainer pushes me to my limits in the gym.

As you put more time and effort into personal fitness and your overall level of health, you’ll begin to see a positive impact on your business.

There’s no better time than now to take this approach to feeling better, all with the hope of impacting your business.
