(ThyBlackMan.com) The quality of your life determines how balanced you are. Many of us have trouble keeping health and business goals in line. Entrepreneurs often make big lifestyle changes that not only affect their productivity but also damage their overall health. In order to achieve a goal, sacrificing other goals is not a wise strategy. Being healthy without cutting corners is the best strategy you can learn from successful entrepreneurs. Here are the 5 ways to do it perfectly.

1. Day Planning

There’s a reason why entrepreneurs love it when there’s an unprecedented flow of projects. Many of us love a consistent schedule of office work, lunchtime, breaks, meetings, and calls. Schedules help entrepreneurs feel organized and it’s the best way to know what they have to do. Even if you are a freelancer and don’t have an office, you can still benefit from a healthy habit of day planning. Don’t be a slave to your plan, but you should use it to feel happy and organized just like how successful people do.

2. Exercise

There are many guides on how to become a successful entrepreneur and not many of them advise people to exercise. Of course, exercise is not going to directly help you in your business (unless you’re in a relevant domain), but the indirect benefits of good health are hard to ignore. For successful entrepreneurs, exercise is a must. They don’t wake up early to burn some calories in the morning, they do it for the body and mind. From yoga to running, weightlifting, playing with kids or riding a bicycle, you will be amazed how much more confident you feel when you exercise. You become more patient and you also get better sleep at night.

3. Focus on relationships

For some of us, entrepreneurship is about staying away from people to work more. Many leadership gurus suggest their audience to leave everything and just work. As a result, people don’t feel like making an effort to become a part of any entrepreneurs group. Some people don’t make friends and they just stop giving importance to their relationships. Successful people never do this. They understand that they need each other. Even if they are not talking about business and money, they know that the presence of people who think in the same way they do matters a lot. Find people who are on a journey similar to yours, whether it’s your neighbors. Those who have a strong network know how to deal with stress and complex situations. When you are in need of support, your connections can turn out to be a great coping system you can rely on.

4. Learn to say NO

The biggest reason why only 2% of people succeed is that they know how to say NO. Many of us get caught up in situations where we start pleasing others. Whether it’s clients, business partners or prospects. As a result, people over commit. All the hustling leads to a condition where we start hating life. We see the happiness on other’s face, but never find it in our own life. When a lot goes on, we can’t enjoy life and our role. Successful people say No to others. They know when and how to say it. Make commitments wisely and always leave space for yourself and other priorities as well.

5. Spend time with yourself

When you’re surrounded by people who work with or for you, finding time for self is hard. But it is very important to feel the need of time for yourself. This is one of the hardest habits one can learn. Successful people do it very differently. Many of us start thinking and speaking to self whenever we get time, but some people consider it an activity and specify a time for it. You must spend some time to do things you enjoy just like how everyone else does. It doesn’t have to be a very special-looking event. All you need is just some time to think and keep things on track by spending time with yourself.

Being a healthy, successful entrepreneur doesn’t necessarily require big lifestyle changes. It requires a focus on healthy habits that can easily become a part of your life.
