Employees of a company get sick days. Most will often make sure they use them too.
As entrepreneurs though, sick days aren’t so easily available and used up.
There is work to be done, staff to lead, customers to serve, orders to process and a business to manage.
Occasionally a day off may be needed, but anything more than this starts to cause chaos.
While some sicknesses can’t be avoided, a lot can be. Simply looking after ourselves, both physically and mentally, can go a long way in preventing sicknesses.
We are no good to our businesses, staff and customers if we aren’t at our best and running on all cylinders. It is our responsibility to look after ourselves.
Exercise, eating healthy, looking after ourselves, and seeking help when needed are all traits that entrepreneurs need to focus on more. Too often they are overlooked.
