Work is slowly killing you!!! Well now that I caught your attention it’s probably not a stretch to say that the majority of us can’t stand work (well accept for me of course).. But have you ever thought about what work does to our bodies.. Those of us that work behind a desk are mostly sitting in front of computers all day hunched over a keyboard typing away all day. Bad posture combined with not getting up and walking around during the day takes a toll on our bodies and at the end of the week, we sure do feel it don’t we?
How about those of us that work in a physically demanding job? Maybe you are a postman and on your feet all day from the minute you get to work.. Maybe you are a construction worker that is lifting heavy tools and materials all day.. Well whether you are a mailman, a construction worker, a sanitation worker or even a UPS driver, all of that activity catches up to you. We all joke around and say that we are getting old but unless you take time for yourself to reverse the daily punishment, work is slowly killing each of us.
But there is hope, trust me. Take a moment and realize that you need to put yourself first once in a while. You need to undo all of that bad stuff with a little “You Time” and a relaxing massage. When you are reminded of that pain in your lower back or shoulders at work, pick up the phone and make your appointment. You’ll wonder why you waited as long as you did.
