I wasn’t always preoccupied with health. In fact, I was doing all the mistakes that most people do. Let me explain …
In my 20s I was working as a programmer, producer and small business owner in the media field. I was working 7 days a week, loving my job, making enough money and enjoying the fact that I’m pretty good at what I do.
I was learning interesting things every day, my mind was challenged and that made me happy.
Unfortunately, I was also ignoring my health.
I was working way too much and I wasn’t taking any vacation time. And I mean never! I was afraid that if I’d take a break, I’d lose what made me competitive in an industry where to be competitive means working 7 days a week. Unfortunately, I was becoming sicker and sicker but I didn’t know it at the time. I couldn’t possibly accept that something bad could happen to me or that I could get sick. Not me, never!
Like many other people, my energy levels were dropping by the week. And my dental bill was getting bigger and bigger every time I went for a check-up. I was easily gaining weight and I felt tired pretty much all the time. I was stressed every day, but this didn’t stop me from continuing my toxic lifestyle. I was eating junk foods, I loved ice cream and eating it by the can, plus sweet chocolate was my thing. I wasn’t exercising at all so my muscles were pretty much inexistent.
But it was about to get worse …
