Are You Sacrificing Your Health for Your Career? ๐Ÿ™

I used to work as an auditor / accountant in London

I hated almost every second of it ๐Ÿ˜†

Haha no, seriously, Iโ€™m not even trying to be funny or dramatic

I hated it so much that I used to cry on Friday afternoons

โ€œOne more week of my life wastedโ€ – I used to think to myself ๐Ÿ˜ข

My search for a more meaningful career aside โ€ฆ

I used to be fascinated by the behaviour of my colleagues

Unlike me, they didnโ€™t seem to care about their health AT ALL

โžก๏ธ Pretty much everyone smoked
โžก๏ธ Pretty much everyone drank (often a lot – and during the week too!)
โžก๏ธ Pretty much everyone ate fast food for lunch

I vividly remember being shocked at how many of the partners & directors looked (in my perception) sick, unhealthy & grey

There was one partner I really got on with

I asked him about it

He told me he simply had other priorities in life, and that he was fairly sure everyone else would say the same

It didnโ€™t sit well with me

I believe the benefits of being strong & healthy impact all areas of life – both professionally & personally

For me, health & fitness is the foundation of a happier life

A life in which I can perform my best in all the things I love

If youโ€™re worried you might be sacrificing your health for your career, then I hear you, and I can help ๐Ÿ’š

You donโ€™t need to choose one or the other, you can “have it all” ๐Ÿ˜
