Your life is the only one you have, but are you putting your health at risk?
Why cherish your health?
Without good health it is difficult to run a good business, in fact, some health problems can cripple it. If your health is good, preserve it, if it is unstable, improve it, if it is beyond what you can improve, seek help today.
You will find that there are many ways to approach improving your health and well-being, and they all start with you taking the first step and becoming action orientated. Without any action health problems, like any other problem can become a disaster.
Don’t be like me, it took two major bowel cancer operations, two heart attacks, diabetes, and going deaf in one ear before I woke up. I always had too much to do to slow down and look after my health.
While you might love what you are doing like I did, there is a thing called eustress and it has the same impact as distress. So the message is to slow down and start focusing on things that can improve your health and well-being as a priority.
“The only person standing in the way of a more healthy life and a better lifestyle is you”. Peter Sergeant
