As an entrepreneur it is so important that you take time to take care of yourself. Eating right and exercising are just some of the ways that you can do that.
Sometimes though, despite your best efforts to eating right and exercise, you are just missing some nutrients that could be leaving you feeling drained and lacking energy.
That is what happened to me. I felt like there was no amount of sleep that I could get to feel awake. Keeping up with my exercise which consists of a regular yoga practice and running and strength training was getting harder and hard to maintain as I picked up more clients and tried to keep up with my daughter who is on the run now!
This was NOT how I had pictured my business growing or me as a mom. I LOVE what I do and I LOVE being a mom, and I felt like a fraud as a yoga teacher and personal trainer and a failure at being the mom I wanted to be. I could not understand it. I eat healthfully, I have learned over the course of my education how to build healthy meals and make sure that I am taking in enough lean proteins, healthy fats, and fruits and veggies. Yet, wanting to get up in the morning was a struggle, and my last client of the night was spent with me apologizing for the yawns because I was not bored or uninterested, I was just plain tired and I could not understand it.
The none day, after a bit of time sitting on my solution and telling my friend, I want to do it my way, I decided, what do I have to lose? I made ONE simple change. I called my friend and said, lets to this, the whole thing, I am tired of being tired. So I jumped on board and made ONE addition to my already healthy lifestyle, and with in a month, I felt amazing. Yoga and running and lifting weights became not as challenging, My first client of the day was shocked at how I had color in my face and my last client of the day was curious as to what I was doing because I did not look like I was going to pass out on her floor. But more importantly I was being more active and playing more with my daughter. That is what really made me happy.
Every day you have the opportunity to make a choice and change. If what you are doing day over day is not working you can not expect the outcome to ever change. When you are done spinning on the hamster wheel like I was and you want to see a change you need to make a change. This is true for life and business. In order to be the person you want to be you need to be willing to take the leap and make the change! I encourage you today if you see patterns in your life that are not working, to stand up and say enough! Then take the bull by the horns and make the changes necessary to be the person you always saw yourself becoming!
