I’m in a hurry. I have to get this written because I have much more to do. Plus, I’m running behind. In fact, I’m always running behind, and I’m usually in a hurry, too. It’s OK, so is everyone else. What’s the big deal?
I’ll tell you what the big deal is: Hurrying is detrimental to your health. In fact, there is something now dubbed Hurry Sickness, where people hurry out of the mere habit of hurrying. In addition, they demand people around them to hurry, too, including their children, spouses, elderly parents, co-workers and cashiers. The problem is all this unnecessary hurrying manifests itself in the form of heart disease, high blood pressure, anxiety/panic and depression of immune function, which can lead to cancer. In other words, we are literally hurrying ourselves to the grave.
