You probably won’t be surprised to hear that stress can cause serious health problems and even death. You might be surprised to learn that most of this dangerous stress comes from your job and work ethic.
Heart disease is the number one cause of death for Americans. Research shows that there is a very strong correlation between stress and anxiety and heart disease. With all of this research, why is no one changing their ways?
Brigid Schulte, a reporter for the Washington Post wrote a new book “Overwhelmed: Work, Love, and Play When Nobody Has the Time,” which discusses the issue of Americans being overworked and overstressed, and the impacts this stress has on their health and daily lives.
Schulte suggests that members of the American population reevaluate their priorities and start focusing on what is really important – their health.
Take a look at how your body is affected by stress:
High value, low stress
I have always been a proponent of a work environment that allows you to spend more time doing what you want to do. Don’t you want to spend more time with your family and friends? Don’t you want more time to work on your hobbies and things that make you happy? You should want these things for yourself to not only make yourself happier, but to improve your quality of life and your health.
What good does spending your life overworked, stressed and miserable if you’re too sick the fruits of your labor?
The foundation of the direct selling and network marketing industry is focused on the individual. You choose when you work and how much you work. Compared to working in an office, working in network marketing allows you to see results of your efforts more easily.
Change your job. Spend more time with your family. Spend more time with your friends. Live a longer, healthier, happier life.
