Being a food truck owner is not a cupcake career. Sure, you might make cupcakes a time or two during your journey, but you will likely work harder than you have ever worked before. Not to mention, 60-hour workweeks will likely be the norm.
With that in mind, it is important that food truck owners break up their days better in hopes of not getting burned out. As a result, we will be unleashing three unique ways food truck owners can break up their days.
Reminder: Work-life balance is huge, no matter what industry you are trying to achieve your goals in.
3 Unique Ways Food Truck Owners Can Break Up Their Days
- Have Something Planned With Your Employees
- Hit The Gym/Go On A Stroll
- Learn Something New/Read
Have Something Planned With Your Employees
Food truck owners can approach this one in a number of different ways. For example, you and your employees can plan on taking lunch at the same time every day, which will allow everyone to step away from the office (aka the food truck) for an extended period of time.
You could also plan some form of activity during the day (perhaps in place of lunch or breaks?), such as going to the park, going to the beach, going on a group walk or anything along those lines.
The choice is yours, but you don’t have to be at your food truck for every waking hour. You are allowed to be away from your business during the day — well, as long as you aren’t taking advantage of this little break.
Instead of taking a lunch, you can go to the gym. Of course, you would either have to close down shop or have someone (such as a manager) take over while you are away. If you rather go on a walk, then that is fine as well.
The key here is not only getting away from work to keep the mind fresh … it’s to also keep your body healthy and happy. No matter what industry you are trying to conquer, you should be doing some form of exercise.
Learn Something New/Read
Whether you just want to take a break for this one or do it while you aren’t busy, it is a simple one to accomplish. Spend some of your free time during the day learning something new and/or reading. It could be fiction, an article, a magazine, menus or anything and everything relating to the food truck industry — the choice is truly yours!
This is one of the best ways you can break up your day, keep the mind fresh and grow as a person. Plus, you don’t have to leave the food truck to do it!
