According to recent research, CEOs can stress more, visibly age faster, live with more frustration, anxiety, and depression, and even become culprits of illness which can have a significant impact on the CEO’s life expectancies. Many say that becoming CEOs should come with a health warning. It is common knowledge that being a CEO has always been tricky but the nature of the modern business model means running a company has become increasingly complex, with decisions constantly needing to be made non stop around the clock. Anthony DeMello was a man who walked the walk and showed folks (including entrepreneurs) that it is possible to stress less and live more. And even after his death, the DeMello Center continues to help individuals improve their living conditions and live purposeful lives.
