I’ve never been one to abuse sick days (fake being sick), but I have experienced feeling guilty when I am sick and couldn’t make it in to the office.

But why?

There is a lot of guilt and pressure (internal and external) that revolves around work.

Many of us often bare and give our souls to our jobs. We forget that we are important too — important enough to take a sick day when we are sick and not feel guilty about it.

Many of us will engage in some type of work for most of our lives. This means we need to learn now how to balance our mental, emotional, and physical well-being while also earning a living. Stop feeling guilty when you can’t give 100% to your job. Work will always be there; you and your health won’t.
