Bikram Yoga for Seasonal Depression

19 Feb

If you find yourself getting down and feeling blue from the dreary days of Winter, I find the best remedy to fight seasonal depression is exercise. To vividly imagine Summer days, I love dropping into Bikram yoga a couple of times a week. I find the heat really helps fight off the chills and seeing everyone dressed for the beach makes the images of Summer that much easier to recall :)

As a mother to 2 young children, I love the sleep habit from the Basis app. I love to know how long I actually slept for. Sleep is crucial for my ability to be patient and energetic for my kids so any feedback as to how I can improve my sleep is definitely appreciated.

Why An Entrepreneur MUST Be Fit

24 Jan

“Being an entrepreneur is like eating glass and staring into the abyss of death. …” powerful words said by the innovative genius, Elon Musk. The mental, physical, and even spiritual battle that takes place daily as an entrepreneur is precisely why one must make health and fitness a top priority.
The mental demand of taking the path less traveled and starting your own business is grueling . Rising up to the  challenge of creating a company and figuring it out along the way is beyond tough, the reason so many take the “safe” path and work for someone else. Because of the extremely difficult task it is to build something that has never been done before, while the naysayers try to discourage you, it’s crucial to invest in your health. Fitness improves mental health dramatically. The confidence you get from building a strong body positively affects every area of your life. Not to mention the serotonin boost you receive, making every day seem a little easier to tackle. Just like a warrior who trains for battle, you must train for yours.

I would argue, health influences wealth. When potential investors watch you walk into a room, they need only a few seconds to pass judgement. If you walk in strong, healthy and confident, they take you more seriously from the start. On the flip side, if you walk in overweight with dark circles under your eyes, how do you think you come across? It would be safe to assume, subconsciously, investors may see you as someone who is not in control of their life and can’t handle  the situation. This may result in another “No” from the VCs. You need to show up as the best version of yourself to sell people on your dream.

Make the investment in your health by scheduling a workout 1st thing in the morning. Put this workout in your calendar. You must make yourself the top priority, as you are the one on the front line battling your way to the top. Choose Yoga, weight-training, and cardio. Don’t choose one, choose them all…just on alternate days. All 3 exercise options will help build a mentally, physically, and spiritually stronger entrepreneur.

Entrepreneurship is one of the greatest tests of spiritually. It is essentially one acting on nothing but faith and belief in their dream. For this reason, entrepreneurs are at risk for illness and even death. I have heard too many times about the entrepreneurs that committed suicide due to the incomprehensible stress that comes with the battle of business. Sadly, only the strong survive.

Knowing all the very real challenges that come with building a business, you must, must, must invest in your health by staying fit. Fitness provides you with the training you need to stay mentally, physically, and spiritually tough enough to take on the world!
