There is often one thing that links successful business owners – organization and scheduling. In order to stay productive and efficient, many business owners create routines and stick to them. According to Entrepreneur, there are 5 things you can do to set yourself up for the perfect day:

1. Sleep

Sleep will allow you to be more productive and keep your brain in top form. Try to make sleep a priority and go to bed around the same time each night.

2. Invest in your health

Regular exercise is shown to be beneficial in combating stress. Try to work in at least 15-2o minutes of exercise a few times a week. Even something as simple as walking a lap or two after work can do wonders in helping you feel better.

3. Let go of fear

Fear of failure can be paralyzing, especially for a business owner. Learn to let go of this fear and manage the anxiety that can come with challenges. Take a deep breath and remember, everything is going to be ok.

4. Cultivate gratitude

According to Entrepreneur, a positive outlook on life starts with a feeling of gratitude. “Take a moment each day to reflect on those things for which you are thankful. What brings you joy? It could be your business, your friends, your health or your relationships. You could also be grateful for the small luxuries that are often taken for granted: a refrigerator full of food, a virtually unlimited supply of clean water, even a comfortable bed in which to sleep at night,” the article states.

5. Exhibit generosity

Set out each morning to do something nice for someone else. When you give to others, without expecting anything in return, it can brighten both your day and the day of the person you’re helping.
