A lot of us white-collar workers are poor when it comes to managing our health. Due to the nature of our job, which is sitting 9 to 5 staring at a computer screen, it’s no wonder a lot of us gain pounds and increase the digits on our waistlines. 

And so not only are you stressed due to work, but you’re also overwhelmed by the fact that you’re gaining weight and becoming more unhealthy. How do we prioritize our mental and physical health so that we can grow and thrive more in our chosen career?
