When the body is weak due to work pressure, expect say one is likely to suffer from heart attack. Heart attack is non-communicable disease, usually suffered by white collar executives. One author gives the following ten ways to get heart attack.
You never entrust others with responsibility. Always do everything yourself. You never turn down an appointment. Always say “Yes, of course “You take your work home with you when you leave the office. You put your work first and personal needs second.
You always work overtime- evenings, Saturdays Sundays and weekends. You convince yourself it’s folly to make use of leisure time you are entitled to.You accept all invitations to meetings, working luncheons, committees.
You never relax at meal time. You are fond of using the occasion to discuss important plans. You always consider outings, relaxing, refreshing etc as a waste of both time and money.
If your work demands travel, you try to work during the day and travel at night. In whatever you do, remember the secret of happiness: make the most of what comes and the least of what goes, and you will be happy.
Those who do not rest, end up being laid to rest
