Gone are the days when rarely or completely kept themselves away from the vacations, took only emergency leaves and waited for the retirement each passing day, only to get rid of this monotonous routine dreaming about happy retirement. But the majority of people were still healthy. The workload was moderate, they were physically active, were carrying homemade food tiffins to work & stress was not dominating their lives as much as it is in today’s world. Is it the same situation today? No
Today many diseases have tagged along with our occupations that are eating up the precious money, time and happiness. Everything is going online keeping us locked in the houses. There is no age limit to have diabetes or heart attack. The medical costs going up. The competition in the workplace is becoming intense. Our family & the social circle is shrinking and thus our communications. Haven’t we got enough reasons to get worried about our mental and physical health?
