Do I feel healthy? How do I feel about my health? My body?

For many leaders, taking care of themselves physically is an afterthought. For some, this is not a problem, because they are naturally able to stay healthy, but for most this is a great challenge. Long hours, little time for exercise, eating quickly and in an unhealthy way are all very easy when you are the leader. There becomes a perceived need to sacrifice and constantly care for your work, people and organization rather than care for yourself. The reality, however, is that it is impossible to be a good and effective leader beyond the very short term if you do not feel well and do not feel healthy. Taking care of our health as leaders is essential.
