Work Pressure can help reduce our illnessIt actually came as a sudden thought to me. I was unwell for last two days, cough, cold and then fever. It was tough to work even today. But since I had an important project to complete, I could not take leave. It is like when you are individually responsible for your work, you take more care of things.
In the morning, it was tough to even open up the laptop and sit, but somehow I managed to do it. The typing speed was also slow, not like the normal day. Slowly and steadily as I was working on various parts of my task, the illness seemed to fade away, or I can say I found it reduced a lot.
After some point of time, I was so occupied with things and the typing speed also improved, I was forgetting the illness that time. I think it could also be the thing that when we are occupied with something, our mind automatically diverts from pain or suffering. We feel much better and quite relaxed.
Also, since I had the pressure that I have to get this task done by today itself, being very urgent and critical. It helped a lot to reduce my illness.
This is a healthy lesson for us if we are not well and getting sick, we should try out ways to divert yourself from the illness, that not only reduces our suffering but also helps to recover at a faster pace. Just like the criticality of work helped me reduce my illness.
Don't you think so?
