Work is killing you. That’s what this infographic says.
Usually, I would call something like this bogus. Work isn’t killing you; you’re killing yourself. That’s always been my line of thinking. Get some exercise, you bum.
But lately I have found it incredibly difficult to stay active, especially in the winter. I spend probably 10 to 16 hours per day in front of a computer. I’m a writer. I can’t avoid it. And it seems like this winter I can’t avoid getting sick. Exercise, if I’m lucky, happens twice a week — usually once.
The best solution I have found is to exercise as soon as I get off work. That’s a lot easier when the weather is nice and you can go for a jog as soon as you leave the office.
The solution in the winter is a gym membership, but I hate gyms. Hate the crowds. Don’t like to wait in line for a machine or to play a basketball game. Don’t like being around the dudes watching themselves in the mirror as they do curls. The douchebag-to-non-douchebag ratio is just too high for me.
So what’s the solution? Well, the weather getting warmer will help. But I need a solution in the winter. I’m to the point where I’m thinking some guy yelling at me on my TV might be my only hope.
