This is a subject that recently has come to light, and rightfully so. Many careers have been labeled as severe health concerns such as policemen, air traffic controllers, and stock market traders to name a few.
These types of jobs we all agree with and do not question. However, when the career of a blogger is questioned as being stressful, usually the response is a laugh or rolled eyes.
Hopefully one becomes a blogger because it is something that one finds intriguing and plans to make money with on the Internet. No matter what career you choose, or way of life you follow, without your health you will find neither.
As with anything in life it is how you view the situation, the balance between your work and personal life, your healthy habits in exercise and eating, your control over addiction in all areas and your sleep patterns that really matters.
People in all occupations can get stressed and suffer from ill health. Blogging can be a high-pressure job, but it is usually because of the person, the way they deal with the pressure, their choices, and their boundaries make it that way.
Bloggers need to form their own daily program to ensure good health. Due to the number of hours of sitting, exercise must be incorporated. Also exercise is critical to clear thinking and a brisk walk is better than sitting and having another cup of coffee.
If you are planning to take care of your health to make money with the Internet, then why not invest in an ergonomic chair that helps support your body properly. Also invest in what goes inside your body with the nutrients it needs to keep you going longer.
A poor diet leads to addictions that are unhealthy and to temptations to quickly get you back to the online networking frenzy. Your body and mind are amazing and can take this kind of punishment for quite some time. But is will give it all back to you and then some!
Finally, relationships suffer, your energy and clear thinking are gone, high-blood pressure appears, depression and anger set in and if you continue on that same destructive path there’s room for a stoke or a heart attack. And you thought this is what you wanted.
Without your health you have nothing, so learn now to take care of your health to make money with the Internet and enjoy all that is ahead for you. Have a plan, set boundaries, and take care of you before your job and you can have it all.
