We often don't fully appreciate things in life until they're not working well—and health is a big example.
For the past few years, I'd been burning the candle at both ends with a blow torch. I left before the sun rose, working over 60 hours a week managing my functional medicine health center. I arrived home at dark just in time to read my kids a book, pray with them, and cuddle before bed. Downtime wasn't in my schedule.
I knew years of this high-paced life was going to catch up with me sooner or later, but I told myself that people depended on me. My son and daughter needed their dad, my wife needed her husband and my patients needed their health care practitioner.
