As I wrote yesterday, there’s nothing wrong with prioritising work over health as long as it’s a conscious decision. Sometimes there are no other options.

But prioritising work over health becomes an issue if you don’t set a strict deadline for when the work takes the backseat. A deadline for when you’ll make your health and fitness a priority again. Whether that’s five months or two years from now.

Because you don’t want to wake up seven years from now and tell your kids you can’t kick a soccer ball with them because your lungs will explode.
