Put Health in Your Marketing Schedule All of us that have chosen to make a career of internet marketing will agree that it’s a great idea for generating extra income and upgrading your lifestyle. We also agree that, at least in the beginning, much of our time is spent sitting in front of our computers. At the end of the day, how are you feeling? The saying, ‘a sound body makes for a sound mind’, is so true. Staying healthy should be a priority for any internet marketer, no matter your level or experience.
When you get up in the morning, do you grab your cup of coffee or tea and rush right to your computer? Slow down just a bit. You were right when you made sure your children had a good breakfast before going off to school. It just makes sense that YOU should eat something before you start YOUR daily activities. Your brain functions much better when you feed it something besides caffeine. Try it. After you have eaten breakfast, you will feel much more relaxed and ready to work. In the middle of the day when you start getting a little ‘antsy’, take a break. Get a sandwich. Stretch your legs. Go for a walk. Meditate. Mental refreshment will help make you more productive. Your mind will be able to formulate new ideas and not be as easily frustrated. Now that your mind and body are working more smoothly, you’re on a roll and don’t want to stop. At some point, you need to sleep. Don’t work through dinner and don’t stay up all night. Eventually, bad habits like this can lead to serious physical and mental deterioration. When you were still working your traditional job, you made sure you were in bed by a certain time so that you wouldn’t fall asleep in the middle of the day. Did you have a workout routine? There’s no reason to stop doing it. It’s good for you! Schedule your time wisely and include good, healthy breaks for your mind and body. Your internet marketing business is now your job and it’s up to you to make sure your body is up to the challenge. Remember: ‘A sound body makes for a sound mind’.
