Stay healthy and focused on your work and Good Luck on your banking career!
The investment banking life is both a blessing and a curse. The pressure can be extreme, both mentally and physically, and your health can suffer tremendously as a consequence.
Some of the most common health issues below, with some advice about small changes may make a difference of understanding what a banker should and should not do, on an array of situations.
Here are the ill-effects of being a regressive bank workaholic
When your heart is racing, pounding or fluttering in banking it`s often caused by the constant flow of caffeinated stimulants, energy drinks and stress. Never ignore at a certain point. If left unattended, heart palpitations could likely lead to you fainting at work - once your heart beats too fast, your blood pressure can drop rapidly and you can faint. Go easy on the caffeine; hydrate yourself well with large water bottles on your desk - and limit your sugar intake.
Most people who stare at the screens for 12-16 hours a day experience rapidly declining eyesight, as well as a whole host of eye strains and pains. The medical term for these is `Computer Vision Syndrome.` Similarly, using your keyboard and mouse repeatedly for those hours for a few years will also give you numbness, tingling pain, and weakness on your hands/fingers. This can be come very painful. The medical terms for these are Repetitive Strain Injury, Carpal Tunnel or Tendinitis.
Hair loss, thinning hair (and/ or widespread grey hair in some cases) can be a consequence of the high level of stress in banking, plus the nutrient deficiency that comes with the job.
High sugar intake is a major problem in banking. Too much sugar can firstly cause energy crash/fatigue unless you fuel your sugar addiction every day. In the long run, it causes diabetes, blood sugar problems, heart disease and fuels cancerous cells. Watch what you eat - there`s no need for you to binge on sugar and sugar related products.
Daily physical exercise and fitness always keep mental health worries at bay. Bankers, should take note before leaving for their respective workplaces.
