Health or career or money or family? What should one choose if one cannot get everything? Life is always imperfect (click to read my only unpopular astrology post). On the other hand, if you don’t have much money or other areas, you probably have something else more than others. You are bound to have something good.
Anyway, so I told my doctor that I do like 3 jobs everyday:
1. From about 5 or 6am to 8 or 9am, I trade and invest stocks. Read all kinds of financial news.
2. From about 8 or 9am to 6 or 7pm, I commute and work at a full-time job that pays the bill.
3. From 7pm to 10 or 11pm, it’s my short family time.
4. From 11pm to 12am or 2 am, I blog.
Most of the time I just get 4 to 6 hours of sleep. Six hours of sleep is just GREAT for me. I can’t remember when was the last time that I sleep for 8 hours.
My doctor’s advice to me:
1. REST more.
2. RELAX more.
3. Exercize more.
4. Eat out less (so that I don’t take in too much salts).
Yes, I’m certainly too young to have high blood pressure. Not sure what the solution is. I never run out of ideas, but I always run out of time. REST & RELAX? Those are precious commodities to me.
I am going to start on number 3 first. I’m already doing number 4, because everyday I’m usually so busy at work, that I bring my own lunch, and finish my lunch on my desk within 10 minutes. When most people is out there enjoying their lunch, I’m watching my stocks, or multi-tasking through my work to speed up the progress, or usually both. I often do 3 things all at once anyway. So no big deal there.
I bought a blood pressure measuring device. After a few times, I stopped using it. It just doesn’t tell me the answer that I want to hear. It’s always high and never low. Isn’t that bad?
Boy, I need a good vacation.
