Luckily, Kimberly Ann Jimenez, marketing strategist, and entrepreneur gives other women the best girl boss tips in her online success path program to help young entrepreneurs overcome burnout and grow their business faster.
Make Your Health a Priority
Take your health as seriously as you take your wealth. Start thinking about your health as a business strategy. Invest in your well-being, body, mind, and soul as a means of getting where you want to go faster so you can always perform at your best.
A piece of practical advice is to make small deposits into the bank of your health, which will inevitably lead to more wealth. You can do simple things like making sure that you are eating healthy meals. You can take one hour of your Sundays to plan your meals of the week, writing down a quick menu, and keeping it consistent.
Start your day with a quick workout. Even if you can't take out 15 to 20 minutes to exercise every single day, multitask. Keep your body active as much as possible.
Sleep Your Way to the Top
Sleep is critical, and it's a non-negotiable in a successful entrepreneur's life. Take your rest time seriously. The most powerful women in business understand the power of sleep. Take Jennifer Lopez, for example. J.Lo is extremely busy, a celebrity, and a powerhouse entrepreneur, but she still makes nine-hour sleep a non-negotiable.
In her book "Thrive: The Third Metric to Redefining Success and Creating a Happier Life," by Arianna Huffington, the author talks about waking up in a pool of her blood. She ran her entire Huffington empire right from the ground up while also raising two little girls as a single mom. Huffington collapsed on her office floor from exhaustion.

You can get yourself some wearable biometric watch. The watch tracks your sleep, how your stress levels are happening throughout the day, how much energy you have, your steps, and more. Checking how your body is with this technology can help you to take better care of yourself.
Get Used to Planning Ahead of Time
What doesn't get planned does not get finished or completed. Every successful female entrepreneur has harnessed the power of planning. Getting things done is still critical in your business, and balancing that with your personal life can be challenging.
However, if you plan, for example taking only 10 minutes every single day at the end of your shift to plan what you're going to work on the next day, that can build up to some fantastic momentum.
Evening and morning routines are critical because they help set the tone for your day. They help you show up as your best self, and they also allow you to disengage and have a hard deadline to where you're transitioning from your work life into your personal life. Start using these girl boss habits to become a better and more proactive professional.
