Join Whitney Johnson for an in-depth discussion in this video Managing stress, part of Entrepreneurship Foundations.
- As an entrepreneur, you are a dreamer,…dedicated to achieving your goals.…Your passion will make you successful.…It can also cause stress.…Which means that your mind and body…don't yet have the adaptive capacity…to deal with what is happening.…This can affect your memory and immune system…and overall health.…And because people pick up on and mimic your stress level,…when you're stressed out, your team likely is too.…The question then is how will manage the stress…of high expectations, long hours, setbacks, and successes?…And importantly, increase your adaptive…capacity as an entrepreneur?…The first step is to give yourself a break.…
You can do this by approaching your business…as a marathon, not a sprint.…According to marathon training expert, Jeff Galloway,…the best way to do this without injury,…is to adopt the run, walk, run approach.…Another aspect of this is…you need to build stamina and endurance.…If you're not used to working flat out,…starting at a sprint pace is unsustainable.…You need to work up to it.…
