Even if I have six massages scheduled, I always plan for time in between them, so I don't feel rushed before the next one. 2. Keep your body balanced with healthy food and plenty of water. Eat balanced meals during the day and a small snack every few hours. Stay hydrated! Water is your best friend. 3. Take your days one at a time. Life as a business owner is hard, yet can be so rewarding. This day has you down—so what? Tomorrow is going to be fabulous! Just putting a smile on your face can make your day better.
