  1. Show gratitude for your work

One of the biggest perks of being a small business owner is the opportunities that it offers you for your work and home life. Take a moment to think about all the things you love about your work. Maybe it’s choosing your own hours, working as much or as little as you want or even the capacity to work within your local area. 

If you’re not showing gratitude for these opportunities or thinking about the positive changes these opportunities have brought to your life, you’re really missing a chance to stay positive!  

  1.  Embrace your work/life balance

If you ever start to feel negativity slipping into your mindset – it’s time to embrace your work/life balance. 

You can’t deny that choosing your own hours allows you the biggest chance of work/life balance. Maybe you like to start your day an hour or two later, or perhaps you’re an early riser who loves to spend afternoons with your kids. It doesn’t matter, what is important here is that you embrace the work/life balance on offer and do something for you that reignites the passion and positivity you once felt. 

Take an afternoon to see a movie. Learn a new skill. Network with a business in your local area. Spend extra time with your family. Or call your best friend. Whatever you do, take moments to enjoy your day. 

  1. Learn something new every day

Small business owners and operators have the wonderful opportunity of learning something new every day. Yes, you read that right. Every single day. 

Learning is such a positive trait that often allows people to feel like they’ve accomplished more in their work life. Instead of thinking of challenges as tough and tiring, think of them as opportunities to learn and let the positive feelings flow.
