We have been providing chiropractic treatment and preaching our health is the best wealth message in downtown San Francisco since 1992.
All of us know people that sacrifice their health for their careers. In fact, we may see that person every time we look into the mirror. Initially, the idea is that it will be short term and is a necessary evil. Once the groundwork is laid and the short term price paid we will have the rest of our lives to enjoy the fruits of our labor.
Well, that might have been the initial plan…but how often does it really work out like that?
What happens more often than not it seems is that the workload intensifies and next thing you know we have less and less time to spend with family and friends. We also tend to neglect our health. We get less sleep, we workout less, we don’t watch our diet like we should…but it’s all for a good cause and we will make up for it once the work is done.
I know all about this because I got caught-up in it myself. Working 7 days a week…neglecting my health and my family. Fortunately, about half way through my career I saw the light and started to back-off. It did take a few health scares and and some intervention from my family, but it was the best thing I ever did.
The best advice I can give is to “live your life now”. Sure, you want to be the best you can be at work but you need to devote just as much time and energy on your health and family. Because without your health it’s near impossible to enjoy life.
Here is one of my favorite quotes:
“When health is absent, wisdom cannot reveal itself, art cannot manifest, strength cannot fight, wealth becomes useless, and intelligence cannot be applied.” ― Herophilus
When it comes to staying healthy, nothing gives you more bang for the buck than chiropractic. Regular adjustments can keep your spine and joints healthy and keep your nervous system free of pressure (your nervous system controls all bodily functions). I also recommend a plant based diet, meditation and Yoga. And of course, lots of time-off and fun stuff. Laughter is great medicine.
“There is more to life than making a buck.” This is what my grandfather said on his deathbed.
That magic time when you get to enjoy life should not be put off into the future. That time is NOW!
