As entrepreneurs, it is important to take care of our mental health as it affects how we work, how we think, and how we feel. Furthermore, research shows the importance of managing stress and maintaining positive mental health for successful business outcomes.

As an entrepreneur that battles depression on a regular. I know 1st hand and all to well. How mental health can and will affect your performance as an entrepreneur. Thereโ€™s been days where Iโ€™ve literally laid in bed for hours overthinking. Overthinking and procrastinating about my business or the success and vitality of my business.

Yes, procrastination is also a part of mental health. Solely due to the fact that you will talk yourself into a low vibrational head space. And this level can vary from day to day. Some days Iโ€™m excited and looking forward to my many tasks at hand. While other days Iโ€™m crying to myself that my business is a failure. Or itโ€™s invaluable and a waste of time and money. This usually happens when Iโ€™m in โ€œcomparisonโ€ mode. Looking at others around me or on social media walking in their โ€œwinning seasonsโ€. While Iโ€™m still in grind and building mode. With little to no profit. Lately in 2023, Iโ€™ve developed a mental check system that truly helped me mentally. And has been a great tool to ease my entrepreneurial anxiety. For one, Iโ€™ve limited my time on social media. I literally log in, post, interact, and log off. I donโ€™t teary over watching posts that trigger me. Or that makes me feel inadequate as a woman or entrepreneur.

As my Grandmother would always say โ€œout of sight out of mindโ€. This has helped me tremendously! I no longer have time to compare my business or brand to others. That keeps me in my โ€œpresent momentโ€. And paying attention to my own lane. Secondly, I have implemented daily meditation and speaking affirmations. Not only over my business, but my overall mental health. Again meditating puts me in a presence mindset. Establishing breathing techniques, chants, and sounds that help to raise my mental and spiritual frequencies. These techniques teach me stillness, allowing spirit to recharge my mental and spiritual batteries. No one prepares you for entrepreneurship. Everyone simply says โ€œstart the business, write the bookโ€.! And yes, starting is definitely the goal. But you must also know entrepreneurship is very tough. There will be good days, bad days, reward days, and losses days. So building mental stamina, believing you are worthy of success, and that youโ€™re capable. Is definitely going to benefit your overall mental health as an entrepreneur.
