Being CEO requires more than just a good idea. It requires drive, motivation and a willingness to work hard. But it also requires mental and emotional wellness that can help you power through the long nights and stressful times that come with being the head of a business.
Though it might seem impossible to juggle a family, relationship, friendships, hobbies and your business, the CEOs who actually do it are humans just like everyone else. They engage in healthy habits like reading, exercising, journaling and unplugging from social media to help them stay mindful, calm and healthy while working. Engaging in these types of healthy activities can help you stay productive while also taking care of your mental and physical health.

To get to the bottom of how CEOs are able to stay so productive, we’ve compiled some lifestyle tips from entrepreneurs about the daily habits that help them succeed.
