Entrepreneurs Are Healthier
Entrepreneurs have stressful jobs and work extraordinarily long hours, right? So why are they healthier than the rest of us? The New York Times reports that a survey conducted for the newspaper by Gallup-Healthways looked at data from more than 200,000 people about everything from physical and emotional health to dietary habits and life purpose. The paper reports that entrepreneurs, who made up 3 percent of those surveyed, were slightly more likely to report they “ate healthy all day yesterday” or regularly eat fruits and vegetables. It also reports that 59 percent of entrepreneurs reported they exercise for 30 minutes three or more days per week, (that compares to 54 percent of other workers) and 19 percent reported being obese, compared with 25 percent of other workers. Anyone have ideas about why?
