It isn’t surprising that some of us get stuck in a rut over our commitment to work. Work-life balance is an ongoing negotiation. It’s not uncommon to feel stressed, and for that to manifest physically in our bodies, creating chronic pain issues. Sometimes, this can even lead to a heart attack or stroke….

There is a predictable experience and quality of a product. There are also regulations about where businesses are physically established.
