Do You Push Yourself Too Hard?
Do you push yourself too hard? In this fast past world, many people push themselves way too hard. For some families, it takes two or three jobs just to make ends met. Many people I know, have two or three jobs. Or, people try doing things that they love to make a little extra money to make ends met. But this makes for people working sixteen hours day or more.
Pushing yourself too hard is not good for you. If you are working sixteen to eighteen hours a day, it is highly likely that you are not taking care of yourself. People need to relax. Sleeping isn’t relaxing.
My Close Friend Pushes Himself Too hard!
If you are overworked, at some point, you are going to have what is called burnout. Your body will make you rest. Burnout happens to a friend of mine all the time. My friend works sixteen-hour days, six days a week. On his one day off all he does is sleep. He has no other chose, his family needs the money, and he is a single dad of three teenagers.
All of his work has caught up with him a few times in the last year. He was in the hospitals four times. Even though he has been told to slow down, he will not. His children do help out, but only one of them can get a part time job, the other two are still too young to work.
People are working themselves to death just to live, and it just isn’t right. Do you push yourself too hard? Do you know someone who pushes themselves too hard?
