Having a healthy and well balanced well-being is what every person desires and aspires.our well-being is your ultimate power of success & nothing can be attained until you are physically & mentally sound. Emotional and physical well being could be a major hindrance on your path to success, that is why it's important for every employer and employee to look after their health at all times.
People often undermine the importance of a healthy working atmosphere but it is essential in obtaining quality employees and achieving desired results. A healthy work environment not only provides an optimal work atmosphere, but also the infrastructure to favorably affect the effectiveness of the task itself.
With back-to-office working, and teams spending a good part of their awake time in physical office spaces, it is imperative to create an environment that brings about productivity, good health and safety.
COVID-19 forced businesses around the world to focus more around the health and safety of their employees.
But retaining the focus on the health of employees is still as crucial as before as it could help grow your business in numerous ways and provide lasting economic benefits.
Almost 15% of global real GDP is affected due to premature deaths and lost productive potential according to Mckinsey. If you flip the coin, improved health of employees could help boost the economy and increase productivity. Good health will result in reduced sick leaves among employees; healthier workers will be less distracted by managing their health; good health will also lead to fewer workers retiring prematurely due to health issues.
Furthermore, a lesser mortality rate will continue to fuel the demand of healthy older consumers and better aging would grow both the future workforce and consumption. Hence, work would eventually benefit the businesses significantly.
According to Mckinsey, better health would increase global GDP by $12 trillion in 2040.
Health matters for anyone and everyone but entrepreneurs can be the worst at taking care of themselves. The 3 hour sleep hustle towards building a successful business is nothing but a sham. Long working hours with no breaks and very little leisure time could lead to serious health repercussions if it continues over time and is definitely not a badge of honour.
It’s extremely important for entrepreneurs to realize the most powerful & important asset of their company is themselves. Machines, products, your customers can be replaced but as an entrepreneur, your mind, your vision, your plan cannot be replaced.
Good health keeps you motivated at all times. Long working hours, minimal sleep, could cause burnouts which is a major problem among entrepreneurs.
The biggest reason entrepreneurs are not able to look after their health is time. It’s important to take a break from work, to freshen up your mind by talking and spending time with your loved ones, eat nutritious and healthy meals, take proper rest & exercise to keep your mind as fresh as ever which will keep the creative juices flowing within your mind. Being physically fit would help you get rid of illness and avoid sick leaves and non productive working days in office. Whereas, feeling mentally well could reflect positively in your behavior and enforce new and fresh ideas for your company while strengthening a positive work atmosphere in the office.
Make your health a priority so you can make smarter judgments, maintain a level head at all times, and look for new methods to make money and increase the power and impact of your empire.
