Wow…like I’m seriously full of gratitude and feeling so honored right now…
I received a second nomination for a blogger’s award this week. I can’t sit here and tell you that these things come easy because even though I feel humbled by being nominated and recognized I know it wouldn’t have been an opportunity without the hard work and time I put into my blogs.

It takes time, and it takes hard work to make these things happen.
When they say things don’t happen overnight, it’s because they don’t 9 out of the 10 times. I’ve been blogging for over twelve years and it took me those twelve years to get to where I am today.
It also takes taking care of yourself during your journey.
With all that being said about hard work, you also having to be taking care of yourself so you can give it your best.
You know that saying, “You can’t pour from an empty cup”? Yeah, it’s true peeps.
Five Ways to Take Care of Yourself as a Biz Owner
- Get some sleep – you know how much better your mind works when you aren’t completely deprived of sleep? Let that motivate you to set a bedtime!
- Drink plenty of fluids and fuel your body (and mind) with healthy foods – keeping a healthy diet will also help you have better energy and better thinking processes and problem solving skills – when you feel better, you perform better.
- Don’t isolate yourself – I can be a victim to doing this to myself. When my list gets long and I get those to-do’s filling my head, I can be known to (what my friends refer to) as ‘cave’ up. Get out of the house and away from the computer and freshen up your point of view. Fresh air is healthy for you!
- Don’t beat yourself when something goes wrong – I know this can be a super tough one. Especially for us biz owners that tend to be uber self critical. But cut yourself some slack. Use these mishaps as learning opportunities.
- Set boundaries – don’t let too much slip onto your plate at one time. There is only so much that can be completed in a day. Learn your limits and say no when you need to.
