Something many people don’t think about when they start a side business is that they will lose valuable self-care time. You will. However, you must still continue to find ways to care for yourself so that you can keep pace with your career, your family, and your side income streams.
Follow today’s tips to get started.
Take care of your skin.
Healthy and beautiful skin not only looks great, but you’ll be less distracted when your skin is not dry, scaly, and itchy. Using NSF The MicroMilk each day gives you an injection of antioxidants that will help keep your body hydrated and feeling great. Further, the ingredients in this proprietary formula can help relax and calm your mind. If you want to keep your face looking fanatics, consider using NSF The MicroOil and The MicroCream as well.
Keep yourself organized.
Organization is paramount to your success as a startup business, even if you begin as a side hustle. It’s a challenge, but it’s one that you can’t afford not to tackle. You have a lot to keep up with, including inventory, customer communication, and the actual work you’re doing. A quick tip to help you stay organized is to take to Google and other online services that let you organize emails, documents, and images. You can put these items together in a Google Doc and download it as a PDF, which you can access from your phone, computer, or other smart device.
Schedule time off every day.
Entrepreneurship fatigue may not be on your radar just yet, but rest assured that it will be. Even if your part-time gig is a passion project, it can quickly become stressful if that’s all you ever focus on, according to Thrive Global. Set start and stop times each day or commit to X number of hours per week. After all, you still have to have time for your family, friends, and yourself.
If you have dreams of turning your side hustle into your full-time job, don’t jump in too quickly. Take the time to make sure you’re doing something that you love, and then grow it slowly. It can also help to track your progress so that you know what’s profitable and what’s not.
According to the American Psychological Association, mindful meditation can help you achieve calm concentration. By meditating, you allow yourself to mentally step away from the hustle, bustle, and challenges of each day. Even if you can only take five minutes out to clear your mind, you’ll return to your side gig, career, or family refreshed, recharged, and ready for whatever may come your way.
Take warm baths.
Warm baths are an excellent way to relieve stress, and a soak in the tub can help you sleep better, reduce your pain levels, and even improve your cardiovascular health. Mira Showers recommends lighting a candle, closing the door, and adding a drop of essential oil to your water for maximum results.
Your side hustle can help you pay your bills, and most people in the UK with part-time gigs earn between £497 and £1000 per month outside of their daytime career. Even if you have no plans to segue into something full-time in the future, you have to stay organized, pace yourself, meditate, and take other steps yourself mentally and physically as you navigate the challenges of full-time and self-employment. Remember, as cliché as it sounds, you truly cannot pour from an empty cup. Take care of yourself, and you’ll have what it takes to take care of business.
