The working class and in particular the white collar workers are some of the busiest individuals in the world. Most of them work so hard that they dedicate their lives to their employers and sacrifice everything including their families just to make sure that they achieve their goals at work, or that they do everything possible to keep climbing up the corporate ladder. Some of these goals are normal and actually when you come to think of it, they are all realistic and natural. The desire to be the best you can be is a good thing. However what you should be very careful about is making sure that you do not lose the plot. Do not get too carried away by your corporate targets that you cannot achieve the basic things in life.

There are long periods of inactivity that are experienced in the workplace. Whenever you have deadlines that you have to beat, you come to realize that you cannot function well unless you have beaten the deadlines.

There are incentives that employers are so crafty to tie to your long work hours, and each time you make attempts to gain them, you only make your life situation worse. Of course you can benefit from the money, the bonuses, the trips for those who worked harder or who delivered the best results, but what if you never meet them, will all your effort have gone for nothing? What about the time that you would have spent relaxing with your family or working out but missed out on just so you can work harder?
The white collar workforce is as a matter of fact one of the worst at keeping a proper diet, which in turn means a problem with nutrition.

However much you try to work hard to impress your employer, it is important to note that the employee is always replaceable at the employer’s will. Companies businesses and positions are not held in perpetuity, but they are going concerns.

Always try to make sure that you have the time to work out and keep fit, you owe it to yourself, and your life.
