Updated: Dec 20, 2022

We've all been there... You wake up in the morning strategizing your day, skip that lunch you were going to make yourself eat, followed up by late dinner, and finally some rest, only to dream of work. Then you wake up and repeat!

What if there was a better way? Perhaps there is. By implementing some (or all) of our key tips, you can learn to relax and in turn build your business to new heights thanks to increased productivity.

First, hold the eye-rolls until you try these tips! I know, I know, some of these seem trite or even silly, but I can assure you that if you take a moment of your busy day to use even just some of them you'll come away both, happier and more successful!

“Honestly, I didn't buy into ANY of this when I first tried it for my own business. Boy, was I wrong! All of these helped in some way." - Ashlyn

Take each one of these individually; try just one for a day and then come back and try another. Over time, you'll find which ones benefit you in their own ways for your mind and body:


1. Take a moment, or three, to breathe

Breathe in... Breathe out... Inhale... Exhale... That's literally all it takes. Don't believe me? Take a moment and go back to that line; except this time when you read it, do it.

"I like to start off my day with a few breaths. Not only do I snag a free moment, but I come away feeling refreshed and able to tackle the issues of the day!" - Stephanie

Feel a bit better? It's simple, but effective. That process of breathing consciously forces us to task our brain with a function that is otherwise natural and autonomous. This in turn forces us to stop thinking about the stresses on our mind. If you're not one for spiritual, the physiological process also brings an influx of oxygen that your body uses to process that stressful thought with more ease.
