Executive Health Q

How to deal with stress and stay healthy is different from how to lead and innovate, but essential for leaders to balance work and life and stay healthy.

About 70% of health issues are stress-related.  Studies found that 100% of CEOs (Vistage) suffer from stress.  The leading causes of death among executives are the heart attack, suicide, stroke, and cancer.  The first three are directly stress-related.  Stress’ immune suppression also contributes to Cancer.   Other stress-related issues include insomnia, stroke, headache, fast aging, weight gain, diabetes, stomachache, etc.

Stress and associated challenges are considered “non-health causes.”  Traditional care mainly works on “health causes” and relieve symptoms of “non-health causes.” Thus, the same health issues often keep on coming back, get worse, and “treatments” can go from a few hundred dollars to millions, for example, the treatments for heart attack.   The efficient solution is to take care of health and non-health cause(s) at the same time, which is how we can free victims from heart attack to do what they need instead of “Avoid All Stress.” Read more at www.BYBSH.com.
