This past Friday, I wanted to share a bit about anxiety and depression as an entrepreneur.
Stats will show that entrepreneurs face higher rates of mental challenges, you may have had this experience yourself.
The truth is, being an entrepreneur can be hard because we deal with so much uncertainty.
Sometimes that can push us to the brink, and without some solid systems in place it can become too much to bear. The Mindfulness below is a solid start, and the video above delves even deeper into the conversation.
- Get someone on 911 – It can be a friend or family member. Someone who will take your call and help see you through the immediate challenges. We’ve all experienced the end of the world scenarios only to find that they too will pass.
- Consider the cathartic route by harnessing your creativity. You can write a blog post, or even create a video of where you are and what you are experiencing. Even if you don’t have solutions, these types of creative works are often invaluable and can be shared once you are out of the hot seat.
