Things we think. Things we love


November 1, 2019


Big business has realised that productivity declines drastically if a workplace is toxic; which is why the wellness market is now worth $60 billion (ft. performance coaches, fitness, zen experts and technology that encourages calm).

Small businesses were often created to move away from such environments; however equally so the pressures of running or working in a small business can take its toll on your health too.

And you’re probably not alone in planning for good self-care measures for you and your team when you ‘just have more time in the future‘!

However it’s oh so important to initiate what you can do now; even if it’s a small business version of self care for you and yourself.

Things like clean eating, decluttering, physical activity, fulfilling connections with others, respectful boundaries, connecting with people in the same boat and deep breaths all help on a do-able scale for small business. ⁣

So for those running or working in a small business and who come up against things like isolation, high intensity projects, limited cash flow, conflicting time pressures, minimal support crew, late nights followed by exhaustion, finding the right staff mix… (missed any?)

When it comes to building a prosperous business that feels good to be in we want to hear about the things you do to add a touch of self care for you and your small business.

Some of the things we do are:

Declutter to create more clarity and creativity. (pictured here, our home/kitchen work space as captured in it’s best state by @thedesignfiles)

Take three deep breaths to slow down the heart rate and decrease cortisol⁣

Do something creative and meaningful that gives back to someone else in business

Listen to inspiring podcasts⁣

Get outside for some physical activity, to take in nature, and immediately remind ourselves we are human beings as well as human doings.

Go on then, tell us what you do to create good wellness-work culture in your small (or big) business.
