Here is a handpicked list of self-care tips certified by successful entrepreneurs who understand the hustle of direct selling and necessity of long work hours. When you’re too busy setting up for success to even think of yourself, these self-care tips will help you manage your health and wellness from the inside-out.
Be In The Moment
In the lead up to finding your successes in this industry, it’s easy to keep your eye on the prize and ignore everything else. Pay attention to your now and cherish your connections with your QNET family. As our very own Dato’ Sri Vijay Eswaran advises us, be mindful. This will help you give your very best in work and in creating memories you will cherish forever.
Create Some ‘Me’ Time
Whether it is in brewing a fresh cup of coffee, or watching your favourite YouTube channel, or even playing your favourite video game, set some time aside for yourself. Find moments in the day where you can check in on yourself and do what you love. Bill Gates is known to take a “think week” every now and then, to escape to a forest and do nothing.
Self-made billionaires have one thing in common – a daily workout is non-negotiable. Be it Richard Branson, Mark Cuban or even our very own Founder Joseph Bismark, they all emphasise the importance of taking care of your body.
Working out will help you stay fit so you aren’t burnt out young, and you have more energy to double your productivity.
Think of your body like a luxury car. Just like you wouldn’t fuel it with anything but the best, your body won’t work to its best potential without high quality food. We don’t mean expensive, Michelin Star meals (although, go for it by all means!), it means eating on time, eating whole foods, fresh ingredients, and not eating as an afterthought. As a vegetarian company, we can’t help but get behind our leafy greens and vegetables.
Pick Up A Hobby
Even our most successful uplines need to find a way to blow off some steam because we all know how stressful work can be. Yahoo’s CEO Marissa Mayer takes time off to bake cupcakes, Warren Buffet plays the ukulele to unwind, many of our QNET VIPs are into photography, reading, and travel. Go to an amateur photography class, join a biking club, visit a language learning social, whatever hobby you want to pursue, doing something fun helps recharge your brain, and get your creative juices flowing.
