Health is wealth. And the best thing we can do for our health is manage stress. Ironically, we chase after wealth by sacrificing our health. We neglect the most valuable asset we have and we even abuse it by putting ourselves in stressful situations in order to earn more money.
We take jobs we don’t care about and expose ourselves to lifestyles that we don’t want, in order to acquire things we don’t really need. We need to make a living and we can’t always do what we want for a living or make the amount of money we would like to make. But we can keep our expenses low and acquire skills that will help us build the life we want.
Part of it, is wanting less in terms of material wealth and the other part is being determined to find work that we will enjoy. It’s not easy and it’s not without its own stress, but what choice do we have? The alternative is a life that we know we wont enjoy and an invitation to disease.
You are only going to be here once. You don’t want to spend your precious time doing a lot things you hate. You have to be determined to find an alternative. Even if you fail trying. It doesn’t have to be perfect. It will never be perfect. But don’t just settle for what gives you the best pay check.
