Death from overwork is so common in Japan, they even have a word for it: “karoshi.”
If you keep overworking yourself, you’ll get into trouble with health. You might end up spending the extra money you earned on hospital bills.
“Mens sana in corpore sano” – an ancient, Latin phrase, that means “a healthy mind in a healthy body.” If we keep our body fit, it’s going to also improve our mind. It’s just as simple as that.
So, decline all the after-5:00 pm meetings. Tell your workaholic colleagues that you have an overlapping appointment – with your personal trainer. ;)
