Heart Troubles For Workaholics

Just Relax & Take It Easy:

British scientists have found those working more than 11 hours per day increase their risk of heart disease by 67 percent. Considering heart disease is one of the leading causes of death, a two-thirds increase is very significant. This should be a wake-up call for all those workaholics thinking hard work can't kill you. With that said, scientists were not positive of whether it was the long work hours specifically or the things that working long hours could be associated with (poor diets, lack of exercise, increased depression, etc.) that negatively affected heart health. At this point, for those who are stuck working longer hours, it is recommended to minimize other potential risk factors by getting adequate exercise, adhering to a healthy diet, ensuring they receive adequate rest and sleep as well as effectively dealing with any bouts of depression.

That is why a BALANCED life is very important.  We are all here on this planet we call Earth for a short time.  It may be only 75 to 100  years, give or take a year or two.  This is why it is very important to eat right, exercise, rest, and adequate sleep is very important.  Also, if you have a car crash or a work injury get your problem taken care of right away so that it doesn't become a lingering chronic pain or problem.   If you don't get your injuries properly treated, they can lead to arthritis later down the road.  The injury can actually come back  to "haunt you" as you age, leading to debilitating pain.  So, take care of yourself now by eating right, exercising, resting, and taking time for yourself to enjoy the "simpler" things in life, like family, friends and things you enjoy the most.    Remember we have two locations to serve you:  One in Salem/Keizer area, and the other in Aloha/Beaverton/Hillsboro area.
