We brag about how busy we are, how early we wake up, or how late we stay up at night, as if we are all competing to get the least amount of rest, to have the most stress, and to spend the least amount of time with our loved ones.
What does not get talked about, however, is the exhaustion, the loneliness, and the unhappiness that this lifestyle creates.
Meanwhile, we should be bragging about getting a good night’s sleep, eating well, exercising regularly, maintaining healthy relationships, and having peace in our hearts.
Health and happiness are the real flex.
