Is your job healthy?
I thought for sure that leaving college would afford me a healthier lifestyle – making a big salary would enable me to eat better foods (organic, more fresh produce, less processed crap, etc). This was true. On the flip side, I worked out several times a day in college both outdoors and in, and spent most of my time outdoors. My job was extremely sedentary – I had never sat for so long, or spent so much time indoors, in my whole life.
The trade-off of time for money, exercise and air quality for good eats, ultimately made my health – both mental and physical – suffer. I am still recovering, 5 months later and I don’t expect to regain my fitness fully for another year or two.
What do you do for a living? How does it impact your health? Would you change anything if you could?
