The Demands of the Executive Lifestyle (and the eye-opening result of it)

March 7, 2019

Tired, baggy eyes. Slightly pale skin. An unhealthy roundness to their physique. I see it with every client or executive group I come across. 

 

Putting it short, the demands of the executive lifestyle are strenuous.

 

On average, the life of an executive means:

  • Less sleep. CEOs average 6.7 hours of sleep per night, 24% less than the average worker.

  • More work hours. CEOs average 11.6 work hours per day, 23% more than the average.

  • Struggle with work life balance. 90% report struggling with balance.

  • Frequent travelling. 4+ days per month are spent travelling which accelerates ageing and increases disease risks.

  • Sedentary lifestyle. 73% live a sedentary lifestyle, resulting in 40% of CEOs being obese.

As a result of all this, executives are at greater risk for:

  • Sleep deprivation

  • Heart disease

  • Depression. 40% or more of CEOs may suffer depression, double the rate of the general public.

  • Stroke

  • Diabetes

  • And much more

Scary stuff.

 

Life-ending stuff, if not managed.

 

 

 

If any of this sounds like you or someone you know, it may be time for a change.

 

The majority of executives I’ve met are data driven and many of these stats are a wake up call. Once they are shown how some simple changes could alter their situation, they take action.

 

Two steps moving forwards:

  1. Make sure you get a regular, thorough health check. Heart, lungs, bloods, brain, the works. With the stress you put on your system it’s imperative to catch something early (ideally before it can manifest).

  2. Take your nutrition and exercise seriously. It’s not optional when your life depends on it.

 

Look after yourself.
