The Effect of Stress on Small Businesses

Putting up with stress over the long term can have negative implications for both your health and your business.  There are issues related to health concerns such as high blood pressure, strokes and heart attacks, with business owners among the most stressed people on Earth!

Stress management is an important skill to learn and involve your colleagues with.  Those who are suffering stress often end up with poor productivity, are less likely to feel valued and are more likely to take time off.

  • delegating tasks to others
  • stop putting things off
  • exercise daily
  • eat the right foods
  • listen to your colleagues
  • have 15 minutes to yourself each day
