Prolonged stress can lead to impaired decision-making processes. Exhaustion and worry can lead to isolation and even challenge the best relationships with staff, colleagues, family and friends, impacting on employees, suppliers and customers. All of this can affect the ability to run a business at its most profitable level.
Binge Living is defined as long periods at work followed by short amounts of time off that consist of poor decision making, over consumption of alcohol, actions and reactions, and huge amounts of food and regret.  But it is more than that, it is over doing things that do no fulfil us, and then a vast feeling of emptiness, frustration, and the cycle continues. This impacts on our mental health, productivity and longevity of life.
