In today's life, most of the work is done in front of computers or machines. People usually sit in front of computers for a long time like if the office timing is 6 hours then it is possible that most of them can spend almost 5 hours while sitting doing some job-related work.

Not just this but a lot of people are doing 2-3 jobs. One in the morning and the second in the evening. It means they spend almost 12 hours on the job and most time they remain in a sedentary position or while sitting.

According to the scientific data spending, most of the time sitting or lying like more than 6 to 7 hours can increase the high risk of developing heart diseases. (1)

High possibilities or risks of diseases cannot only increase early death possibilities but may make you spend a lot of money on the treatment of various diseases.

Due to high development in the medical field an average person's life span has increased. It is possible to get needed treatment for most of the diseases but normal health can't be achieved if you have been diagnosed with serious health issues.

Moreover, treatment for diseases is also very expensive as private clinics or hospital charges are huge. In 2018 most United States hospitals were charging 123000 USD for heart bypass, $173000 for heart valve replacement, and $40364 for hip, $35000 for knee replacement surgeries respectively. (2)

Expensive medicines or treatment is not a big deal if you are rich but you may need to know that a lot of chronic disease patient needs to take their medicines on daily basis.

Heart issues can rise

Addictive behavior to gain wealth can make you a severe health patient. Modern jobs or work demands extra hard work to get extraordinary benefits. That is why people mostly do 12 hours of work while sitting.

Data of many types of research and studies have concluded that too much attentive behavior towards sedentary jobs can make you cardiovascular or heart patient.

Most people who do mostly office-related work got very little time for physical activities or exercises.

As exercises are very essential for a good and healthy heart that is why zero or less engagement in those can trigger or cause long-term heart issues or fatality due to bad CVD incidents.

Money can't buy happiness

Money can buy you most of the world's needs but it can't buy you happiness mostly. It is quite possible for a middle-class person to live a happy life as compared to rich ones.

Not just basic health issues but mental issues like depression, anxiety, or other disorders risks can increase when you will try only to gain money while ignoring your basic health needs.

A lot of people are facing mental issues. Perhaps depression and anxiety are considered as rich people's diseases.

Mental issues not only cause financial loss but can increase the severity of different lifestyle issues.

You may lose all

To get more money people like to do bets and they also invest on unreliable ways to make extra ordinary assets.

It happened many times that to achieve financial goals by investing and following betting like techniques provides complete loss.

Many people have loss their houses also just due to their crazy habit of betting.

Currently bitcoin or crypto currency is in trend. It might be good as many big names i.e "Elon Musk" are behind it.

But investing all on it can't be a clever move as it is not much stable and also receiving negative views from big business personalities like "Warren Buffet" whose views are not friendly about it.

It May make you obese or overweight

Remember obesity is the root of health issues. Extra body fat is needed to shrink away to reduce health complications or issues.

Can reduce enjoyment

We are not here in this world just to do work but also need enjoyment in life. Fun, enjoyment, or entertainment can improve your lifestyle and mood and may also contribute to lowering many health risks.

Giving most of the attention to earn more can put your attention towards stress-related things. When you will spend extraordinary time earning money then you may not get it to enjoy life.

Bad for family goals

Earning more money can cut your connection with your family. You may have to spend most of your time at work to earn an extra high income.

A regular job can consist of 5 to 6 hours. And nowadays most of the people are doing double shift jobs.

It means they are spending 12 hours at their offices or at performing work to achieve financial goals.

When you will spend 12 hours of a day to your work then what time you can give to your loved ones or family members.

That is why too much engagement in jobs is not mostly a good option as you need many other things apart from money. Money can buy many things but a lot can't be achieved with it.

Basically, some people try to do ugly business with others when they observe them getting more prospects than they are trying to achieve.

Bottom line

Earning money helps your survival. But desire to earn more and to get rich overnight cannot be a good choice to implement or follow. If you are earning according to your needs and have a good healthy or fit body then you are one of the luckiest people in the world. Good luck.
