What You'll Discover In This Episode:
Let’s play a little trivia!
What is the first thing business owners tend to let go of when they feel overwhelmed and out of time?
a) Their productive routines
b) Working on their high-value activities
c) Their commitment to self-care
Well folks, there’s no wrong answer here as business owners tend to let go of all those things when they mismanage the time they have and are busy putting out fires left and right.
Today, though, we’re going to focus on self-care and the mind-body-soul-business connection because… you can have a rocking business. You can have the marketing nailed down. You can have the best team. But if you as the business owner are failing in health and energy and focus, you’ve got nothing.
Taking radical ownership of your health is necessary to be productive and it significantly benefits your business.
And get this… taking care of yourself is about way more than just balancing your physical health.
You must focus on completing your overall health picture and that means balancing your spiritual, emotional, environmental, relational, and mental health as well.
It sounds like a giant undertaking but it is worth the effort because the benefits of achieving multidimensional health will flow into all the other areas of your life, allowing you to show up as your best every day for the people and activities that matter.
To learn more about completing your overall health picture, I sit down with certified nutrition coach and host of the Grace & Grit podcast, Courtney Townley in this episode of Productivity Straight Talk. We discuss how your productivity improves when you take time to honor your body, mind, and soul (not just your business!), how a healthy business requires healthy leadership, and the fact that health is a PRACTICE of self-leadership.
