Monday Motivation – Health or Wealth?

Would it surprise you at how many people come in to the emergency department that are suicidal who have very high stress jobs stating their medication (often multiple medications) for depression is not working? Hmmm….Maybe it’s the medications that don’t need to be changed ….maybe a change in environment would make a big difference. 🤷🏼‍♀️

What’s even more baffling is they are more worried about losing their job than they are about losing their life due to the stress of their job. I get that people have to pay bills and put food on the table but these high-paying jobs are affording people much more than their basic needs. The more money that is made often equates to more money spent.

We can choose wealth or we can choose health and occasionally we can choose both but there must be a balance between managing financial wealth and managing health.

High paying, highly stressful jobs are not good for anybody mentally or physically and while there is a lot of money being made and ‘things’ being bought… what’s it worth… Your health? 🤔

That’s the million dollar question.

Health before Wealth!
