“My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor, and some style.” ~Maya Angelou
As an entrepreneur you need to not only take good care of your business, but your health also. Making sure you are healthy mentally, physically, and spiritually.
Your health impacts the success of your business and personal life. Keeping a balance will create a wealthy life. Your health truly is your wealth.
I am not a doctor or a therapist but I know being healthy in all areas reduces the stress and increases the enjoyment of life in general. In turn it will show up in the effort you are able to put forth into your business.
Mental health is about your psychological and emotional well-being. My goal is not to emphasize disorders but to do what is necessary to be a healthy whole woman entrepreneur.
If you feel you have a disorder or something is not right-get help. Shame will not improve your life. Doing what is necessary to be healthy and whole is the goal. Therapy and working with your doctor to improve a mental illness is honorable and the most loving thing you can do for yourself and your loved ones.
I found a great list online called the 10 Commandments of mental health by positive med, I’d like to share it with you.
These are simple things if followed would reduce most of the stress and challenges we experience. The goal is to overcome the stresses of life and to experience our goals and dreams.
In future blog posts I will drive deeper into many of these commandments to get the full picture of mental health.
