A few years ago, I was working my ass out. I was passionate about the work I was doing alright and was already getting acclaim but what was taking a toll was my health!
Overdoing work is not a bad thing as much as overdoing work and neglecting your own body and its requirements are. Take my example. When I started as an attorney at the bar, I knew the ascent would take anywhere between ten and twelve years to see myself anywhere in the place that I reckoned to see myself.
I was racing against time and wanted to prove that I could get there faster. Of course, I was slowly becoming a workaholic and I realized that but what I did not realize was that I was depriving my body of the benefits of fruits and also the care and love that comes with careful planning of the food one eats. Eating fast food and quick grabbing of bites between client meetings and court proceedings have left to vulnerable to a lot of lifestyle diseases.
To cut it short I have reached my goals earlier but I have lost out on my health majorly. I have shortchanged time for health and believe me it is not the least bit intelligent thing to do.
Correct measures helped:
It took ulcers in the stomachs to bring home the point that I was not eating enough vitamins, minerals, fiber and not consuming enough water. Also eating food that was heavily processed was making my intestines slowly give up on me. It all made sense when I was reading MOVOMOVO.COM.The website hinted that I needed to detoxify myself before doing a total re-haul of my food habits. Paleo diet, brisk exercise and six months later, I am positive on the road to recovery!
Remember in your rat race; give your body the respect it deserves no matter what.
