Running a business comes with a lot of responsibilities and demands. Managing transactions, employees, meetings, deadlines, and more might make it easy to neglect your physical and mental health. However, doing so can have consequences. 

Avoiding healthy physical and mental practices can lead to decreased business output and even burnout. So, what practices do successful CEOs make sure to incorporate into their daily routines to help with the business and help themselves? 

To learn more about these daily habits, we surveyed a few successful business people about their must-dos. 

  • Reading Books

Books can be powerful tools for learning but also relaxing and enjoyable. For example, if you choose to read a nonfiction book, it can help you learn more about your business and desired field. However, fiction books can also help improve your memory and cognitive function. Plus, reading for an hour before bed can help you unwind and relax. 

  • Putting Down the Cellphone

It might seem counterproductive for a business person to spend time away from their personal computer and business lifeline, but sometimes it’s necessary to do so. For example, putting down your phone can help you prevent burnout and take a break from the constant work that comes with always having a phone in your hand. 

  • Writing in a Journal

Running a business won’t always be easy. When negative emotions bubble to the surface, a journal can help you work through and make sense of them. What’s more, journaling has been linked to mental health benefits like improved mood and increased mindfulness. A journal can also help you plan out your week and solve any pressing business problems.
