Give Yourself A Break
The concept of taking a break may seem strange, but taking time away from the office won’t hurt your business. When you are well-rested, your business will benefit. So during those days of high stress, listen to your body and step away if you need to. Be sure to get enough sleep at night, eat well and take time for yourself on the weekends too. Enjoy the company of friends and family and make memories that can fuel inspiration and energize your workdays. A balanced approach to life and business begins with caring for yourself both physically and mentally.

Structure Your Schedule
It’s a pretty incredible thing to be your own boss—especially when it comes to structuring your schedule. That said, don’t forget to set clear boundaries with your work hours, and stick to them! Even if your to-do list is miles long, the truth is, as an entrepreneur, there will always be something you need to get done. Try to leave your office by a defined time every day and commit to it. A helpful hint is to schedule an hour-long “meeting” to hit the gym, enjoy a hobby or indulge in a long lunch break away from the confines of your office or storefront.
Learn To Say No
Despite how organized you may be or how well your time is managed, all entrepreneurs inevitably struggle to meet the long list of demands and responsibilities that come with the territory of being your own boss. Learning to get comfortable with the word “No” is an integral part of maximizing the hours in your day. Give yourself permission to refuse unrealistic expectations, whether it is a client’s or your own. The result: More room for the things that are most important to you.
