Three ways online entrepreneurs can find a work-life balance to break the cycle of running themselves, and their business, to burnout.
Okay Google, “How do I maintain healthy work-life balance when my world is all-work, no-life?”.
Because in an online space that equates more work with hard work, and lives and breathes ‘hustle culture’, what does real balance look like anyway?
I’ll tell you. It’s not all smoothies and retreats and digital detoxes. At least, it’s far more than that. Here are three real ways you can achieve work-life balance as an entrepreneur.
By the end? You’ll be able to:
→ Practice balance in all aspects of your life, not just business.
→ Actually find more time for yourself.
→ Return to more of the things you love doing in business.
→ Make space for personal and financial growth by positively stepping back.
Just like a meeting or deadline, religiously schedule self-care into every week and day (if possible).
Your clients are important, your relationships with family and friends, even more so. But YOU and your health will always come first.
Prioritizing your wellbeing ensures you:
Just as you’d invest in your knowledge or the best software, taking a step back to do what you love is just as important for your success.
Get inspired! Here are some self-care acts I practice:
Don’t force it – simply find what you love, what makes you feel good, and what you can easily integrate into your daily life. What could your self-care routine look like?
Before I begin: It’s important not to look to anyone else for inspiration. Just like self-care, what works for you is a routine that’s sustainable, positive, and enjoyable for you.
Integrating a routine (or improving your current one) helps integrate better work-life balance by giving stability and clarity to each day, helping you maximize your energy and get more out of every moment.
Habits are the tenet of a great work-life routine. And while they can take anywhere from 18 days to almost a year to form, the best kind are created when they’re easy to add to our current day-to-day behaviors.
What could you do to improve, adjust, or set up a great work-life balance routine?
Whether it’s a quick walk with a friend or co-working with your biz bestie, embracing more community in your work and life can help boost productivity, improve your positivity and increase feelings of connectedness and re-inspiration.
Additionally, incorporating more community for work-life balance can:
Being a solopreneur or online business owner can get pretty lonely, just as living by yourself or a limited friendship circle can. Joining Bumble BFF, finding like-minded Facebook groups or simply sliding into the DMs of someone you admire on Instagram.
And when in doubt, my DMs are always open!
As an online entrepreneur, the push and pull of a 24/7 job and a life outside it can often feel suffocating. But balance begins with a few simple changes, like:
BONUS: FINDING BALANCE MEANS WE MUST FIRST SHAKE THE BOAT
Hear me out – if you’re feeling out of balance, the only way to regain calm is to change your current state. To burst your own bubble and try a new method of doing things. And for my coaching clients, this often begins with exploring passive income streams so they can make more while working less.
