Female Entrepreneurs: Lower Stress, Increase Success

Female entrepreneurs have the best of both worlds. They’re able to live their life as they choose, striving to attain their goals, hopes and dreams, often while raising a family and having a meaningful romantic relationship. It’s a delicate balancing act, however. With this freedom and empowerment comes a large dose of stress.

In general, entrepreneurs have the common characteristic of being ambitious and eager to take on the toughest challenges. The trouble is that sometimes they can bite off more than they can chew. All of this stress can have a negative effect on health and happiness. You might be successful, but at what cost? You are exhausted and have to keep on going like a hamster in a wheel. Stress reduction can help, if you take the time to learn more about it and apply what you learn to stress less in order to gain more success.

Here are a few suggestions to help lower stress every day.

* Schedule time for yourself
Entrepreneurs are all about planning, scheduling and doing. Schedule time for yourself every day. Spend it on self-care, exercise, a hobby you love, or spending quality time with friends. It’s up to you. The main thing is to feel refreshed, not drained.

* Outsource
Hire freelancers to do the tasks that take you too long, you don’t enjoy, and/or which are routine and need to be done, but don’t really add to the revenue of your business. You can hire cheap but reliable people at Fiverr and Upwork. In terms of your personal life, outsource cleaning, lawn care and more

* Have a support group
Friends, family and associates in your life can all help you get through your to-do list with less stress. Swapping play dates and babysitting, taking turns with the school runs, and more, can all add up to less wear and tear on you, especially at the end of each quarter and in the run up to your busiest times of the year.

Being a business woman might be about doing it all and having it all, but you don’t have to do everything yourself. Manage your stress in these simple ways and watch your success increase.
