It seems like now more than ever people are starting to create their own business. Which is great because you get to work on what you are passionate about every day but having your own business also comes with a lot of hard work, time and effort.
Things don’t always go as planned; you can work 24hrs a day and still have so much left on your to-do list. It can stress some people out and ruin the joy of having your own business.
The whole point of starting a business was to have more free time and enjoy life more. What some people don’t realize is that you can still live at peace while being ambitious and a goal getter running your own business.
Even if you don’t have your own business and just have a stressful job. I’m sure this can help you out too! This post is for all the hard workers out there! Here are three tips I am sure will help you out! 🙂
Enjoy The Process & Be Present
You might have so much to do that you don’t realize that you are working in a state of stress instead of working in a state of peace and joy. Sometimes you might just want to rush everything because you have so much to do but doesn’t that just take away the joy you should be feeling while working on your business?
Enjoy the process of working on every project you have at hand and be in the moment. Work with joy in all that you do and create it with love. Realize when you are working in a state of stress and guide yourself back to working in a state of joy.
It is something that I try to do all the time, I try to enjoy the process and do all my work with love and joy. Just like they say, “a meal made with love taste better.” With your job, it’s the same. People will know and feel the love that you put into your work.
Being present can help you feel more at peace and work with joy. Even though you might have a million things to do, focusing on one thing at a time while being present will help you enjoy the process.
It might be hard to do when things don’t go as planned, which leads me to the next topic.
Be Okay When Things Go Wrong
One of the most difficult things to do is to be fine when something goes wrong. Sometimes it might feel impossible to feel at peace when things are not going as planned. It would be great if we could control everything that happens in life and our business but that is not reality.
What helps me is knowing that there is always a solution for everything. Maybe at this moment things are not going as planned but it will not be this way forever.
We can’t always control every single thing that goes on in our business, so we need to learn to be calm and patient when something goes wrong because, in the end, it will all work out fine.
What can help is to write down what the problem is and write down ways it can be solved. Once you see with your own eyes certain things you can do to fix it, it won’t seem as stressful or impossible to fix.
If you learn to focus on the solution instead of the problem, that will help you solve the problem faster. The solution is always there, have faith that there is always a solution for everything.
Sometimes, when you think something is going wrong, that is when everything is falling into place! 🙂

Don’t Forget To Enjoy Life
In the end, what we all want is to enjoy life and live it to the fullest. Isn’t that the reason you started your business in the first place? To have more free time and enjoy your life?
Don’t fall into the trap of just working all day and forget to live your life. Although sometimes you might love your job so much that hours and hours can go by without you even realizing it.
But when you start feeling stressed it’s always good to just take a step back and go for a walk or take a break to clear your mind. That way you can come back with a clearer mind, feel in tune with your body and feel more at peace.

I will end this post with one of my favorite quotes! ♡
People sacrifice their health in order to make money. Then they spend all their money to recuperate their health. Then they are so anxious about the future that they don’t enjoy the present: the result being that they don’t live in the present or future; they live as they are never going to die, and then die never have really lived.” By Dalai Lama
