Startup Entrepreneur Stress Management

Entrepreneurs are so passionate about what they are creating — and often, so fearful of letting their team and investors down — that they will do almost anything to realize their startup’s potential. Entrepreneurs forgo sleep, friendships, family relationships, exercise, and good nutrition for their startups. This startup-above-all-else approach can lead to chronic stress, which wreaks havoc on entrepreneurs’ physical and mental health. It’s a stressful job that can create emotional turbulence.

It is hence necessary to manage this stress so that entrepreneurs can be more productive and succesful.

Different strategies recommended by therapists: 

  • Paying attention to body stress signals
  • Dealing with the stress head on
  • Taking systematic breaks
  • Adopting a healthy lifestyle
  • Trying to achieve healthy work-life balance
  • Keeping perfectionism in check
  • Delegating to reduce your workload
  • Finding people you trust and confiding in them
  • Commiting to vacation time
