Aligning wellness with work

As a startup founder, I've always been deeply passionate about my venture, constantly pushing boundaries, overcoming challenges, and striving for growth. Like many entrepreneurs, I used to believe that success meant sacrificing personal well-being for the sake of the business. However, my journey has taught me a valuable lesson: startup success isn't about burning out, but about taking care of oneself and living the values of the startup every day.

In the early days of my startup, I glorified long hours and relentless hustle, thinking they were the only paths to success. I devoted all my energy to the business, neglecting my physical health, mental well-being, and personal relationships. But as the demands of entrepreneurship took their toll, I faced burnout, exhaustion, and a lack of clarity and focus.

One day, while reflecting on Wana's values and mission, a question arose: How could I bring creativity, peace, and connection to others when I wasn't embodying those qualities myself? It was then that I realized the importance of prioritizing my own well-being and aligning with Wana's values. I began to see my startup as an extension of my higher self – one that is deeply creative, resilient, and purpose-driven.

By treating myself with the same care and respect as I do my startup, I found myself more in tune with Wana's values and purpose. This alignment allowed me to solve problems with ease and clarity, effortlessly navigating challenges and knowing exactly what steps to take to drive the business forward. As I continue to prioritize self-care and embody the values of Wana in my daily life, I find that both myself and my startup thrive in harmony.

If you want to feel more connected to your daily work, I want to invite you to join me on this journey! What are your personal values? What are your work’s values? How do they align? What can you do to respect your work and yourself? For me, I respect my work through meditation, reading, painting, and working out. Let’s try to improve together. Comment your goals bellow!
