Stress at work takes a toll on your productivity and health. Believe me, I'm living proof. Last year was possibly one of the most stressful years in my career: long hours, demanding workloads, and not to mention, taking on the role of a new father. All of this combined caused quite a shakeup in my diet, my sleep, and unfortunately, my waistline. I swore to myself that I'd bring myself out of this mess just as soon as I found the outlet I needed to eliminate the stress.
Did that scenario sound familiar? I know I'm not alone. This story is repeated quite often in most young men's lives, yet few do very little to turn the corner and make the change. Some choose to stay on the couch, admitting defeat, some start walking to work or pumping iron, which is a great start. But to completely alleviate stress, you've..got..to..hit..something.
