I prioritize work over health every single time.
I get up way too early in the day, work long hours at a desk and then am wiped at the end of the day.
I am not someone that can turn off their day either. I still think about work and stress about it. My wife complains about it constantly. At first I didn’t think it was a big deal. I wasn’t really willing to adjust my life either. I made good money and that seemed good enough. I then started noticing problems creeping up. Physically I wasn’t doing so hot. My back, neck and hips always felt sore since I hardly moved around. I also started testing for high blood pressure and had tons of stomach issues. Mentally I began experiencing trouble falling asleep and staying asleep. Emotionally, my relationship wasn’t doing so well. My wife started leaving the house more and more and not wanting to plan any fun activities for us. I knew I needed to make a major lifestyle change. I am not on a path to be healthy. I work 9-5. I start at 9 and actually quit at 5. I make sure to take an hour lunch break at the same time as my wife. I like to have sandwiches and smoothies. My wife puts a bit of CBD oil in the smoothie that is meant to lower my blood pressure and reduce stress. I also have been working out on the weekends and talking with my wife more. I do feel physically, emotionally and spiritually so much better.
