Developing a strong and healthy foundation for life is one of the most effective tools in the entrepreneur’s proverbial tool belt.  Consciously deciding to change the way we live is the only effective method, and a healthy lifestyle can mean the difference between success and failure in the world of business.  

As entrepreneurs, we tend to let our health habits slip through the cracks and take a backseat to our business affairs.  Staying active in the world of business, however, requires a well-oiled vessel.  Take a look at a few healthy habits that will boost the life and productivity of entrepreneurs everywhere.  

Breakfast is not a mythological creature

Breakfast really is the most important meal of the day.  Our parents were not just trying to trick us into eating their soggy scrambled eggs.  An entrepreneur’s morning regime can have a profound effect on the outcome and productivity of the day.  

Neglecting breakfast can lower cognitive function, creativity, and overall performance.  Decision-making is much more difficult on an empty stomach.  The body is designed by nature to achieve only one objective when it is hungry, and that is to eat.  Everything else is secondary when our stomachs are in need.

Make time to sleep

Sleep deprivation can cause all sorts of negative consequences.  Medical professionals have now recognized sleep deprivation as an official medical condition.  Lack of sleep can cause a person to have trouble thinking clearly, eating, and digesting food.  

The most successful entrepreneurs stand by the old saying, “Early to bed, early to rise.”  Lack of sleep can cause exhaustion and a laggard existence.  Make time for at least eight hours of sleep every night, and the results will be clear.  

Eat a health-conscious diet

When it comes to formulating a health-conscious diet, there are a few things to keep in mind.  Instead of trying to get super detailed and picky about what to eat, try focusing on eating fresh foods, fruits, and vegetables.  

Lean meats are better for the heart and cholesterol levels in the body.  Whole grains or even no grains (depending on individual need) are excellent for health.  Gluten free diets are becoming more and more popular due to their effectiveness at reducing inflammation in the body.  

Free the body of harmful toxins

Regular exercise is not just good for the body’s physical condition; it will also assist the body’s natural systems in filtering out any harmful toxins through the sweat an individual produces.  

It is okay to have a few drinks on the weekends to relax, just make sure to pick up the exercise routine as soon as possible.  

Remember that life outside of work does exist

Simply put, there is more to life than making money.  Making time for personal enrichment is healthy.  Do not spend every second investing energy into the business.  It will hurt, in the end.
