with it, it is impossible to maintain the pace and deal with the pressures of a new burgeoning business, especially during the first two years.


So how can we best care for the miraculous and mysterious gift of our bodies, our “ride” through life, as we navigate the heavy workload and responsibilities that accompany a start up business?


Here are 4 wise tips for budding entrepreneurs that the Buddha would most certainly endorse.


1. Guard your sleep like a castle – I know, I know, it’s often one of the hardest health habits to practice, but studies show that chronic sleep loss can contribute to a myriad of health problems including high blood pressure, weight gain and a decrease in the immune system’s power. So make it a priority to clock in as many z’s as you need to feel fully rested when you awaken in the morning. Don’t underestimate the power of this life extending ritual. Remember, sleep deprivation is a torture tactic...honor your body’s need for rest.


2. Spend time hanging out with Mother Nature. Between our homes, our cars and our offices, the overwhelming majority of us are spending most of our time indoors in confined spaces. This is flat out unnatural, and a fast track to depression. Study after study show a direct and dramatic connection between spending more time in the natural world and increased overall health. So, whenever possible, take your breaks outdoors rather than in front of your computer. Mother nature provides healing and inspiration for anyone wise enough to seek her company.


3. Create a natural high through exercise…Studies show that exercise is as important as what we eat when it comes to our overall health! Give yourself the gift of that lovely cascade of delicious endorphins that accompany getting your heart rate up…and if you can workout outside, you’ll get compound interest on your investment in yourself!


4. Stand up for your health –A 14 year study shows the death rate for those who sit 6 hours per day is 40% greater than those who sit 3 hours or less per day! Forty percent! Just like on a pack of cigarettes, there should be a warning label on every chair we purchase; “Warning… sitting can be hazardous to your health!” So every hour, set your alarm on your watch, phone or computer and get out of your chair and onto your feet for even a few minutes. And remember, you are extending your life with every standing ovation you give yourself!
