The 24/7 Lifestyle May Be Hazardous to Your Health

We've talked about the 24/7 lifestyle and the urgency factor. Here are some classic signs that the frenetic pace of the technological age has helped to take you out of balance:

  • Your lifestyle is so hectic, the only time you can return phone calls is via cell phone on your commute.

  • You only manage to eat a “normal” dinner one night out of five during the week. The rest of the time, it's strictly high-fat take-out.

  • You never sleep more than five or six hours a night because you are up late catching up on work or paying bills and organizing your personal life.

  • You haven't taken a nonworking vacation in a number of years.

  • The last time you consistently exercised, you did Jane Fonda aerobics tapes wearing leg warmers.

  • Meals, family time, kids' soccer games, and quiet evenings at home, are all interrupted by work-related calls.
