It’s been pretty well documented by now that passion is good for your business. Especially when it’s properly understood and not just used as a synonym for something you enjoy doing.
Passion can be translated into your company’s core values by, “Finding Your Why.” And how knowing their reason for being is the key differentiator between companies that excel and ones that merely turn profit.
Thus, if passion is good for (or arguably) essential to your business, it should come as a pleasant surprise that it’s also good for your health.
The average American works 47 hours a week, which is 25% more than our European counterparts. And with email on our smartphones and broadband internet at home, it often feels like we never leave the office.
So, it stands to reason that loving what you do will make your day more pleasant, or at the very least, not loathing what you do. Workplace stress is responsible for as much as $200 billion in healthcare costs every year.
Your job can literally make you sick! Deadlines, extra hours, and pressure from an overbearing boss, can all have a profound effect on your mental and physical health, provoking extreme stress, anxiety, and even heart disease.
