How the Best Leaders and Most Successful People Practice Self Care

As we get older and respond to the challenges of life and sedentary lifestyles, our posture deteriorates. Our shoulders become hunched, our necks stiff, and we sit either slumped or holding ourselves in a rigid upright position.  

Be intentional and purposeful about building in time throughout each day and week, to take care of your body.  

Here are some things to keep in mind:

  • Exercise
  • Strength training and cardio
  • Proper posture
  • Get outside
  • Rest and recovery

Never underestimate the value and benefit of staying physically active, and taking your fitness seriously.  Aside from the mental benefits of creating serotonin, a natural anti-depressant, regular exercise keeps our bodies – muscles, joints, and range of motion – in prime shape.  

The risk is getting stuck at our desks, on the couch, or cramped in an office.  

When we take care of our bodies with the same intention and purpose as we take care of our minds, we continue to grow ourselves so that we’re able to pour ourselves into others.
