Entrepreneurs are more prone to mental illness because they’re more likely to neglect their health; their diets are often poor, they almost never get enough sleep, and many never make time for exercise.
This start-up mentality of pushing yourself to the brink can trigger mood vulnerability, which makes stress and anxiety that much harder to cope with.
Developing a self-care plan is essential to combat mental health issues among entrepreneurs.
Here are a few ways you can help manage your work-related stress:
1. Carve out “office hours” and respect them
2. Avoid comparisons with others
3. Daily meditation and/or physical exercise
4. Keep fresh water and healthy snacks around
