I read a couple good postings on Trading for a living at Movethemarkets and Eyal did a follow up as well. There are couple of good points to note. However, I am not very keen in joining the conversation now, to me, when the time comes (Trading for a living), I will know.
A thread “How is everybody’s health?” in EliteTrader caught my attention. To me , this is far more important than struggling about “should I quit my day job now?”. I have wrote a post on similar topic before.
The thread started with this question
“(As a trader) How do you keep yourself FIT, Normal in Society?”
I am listing some good points mentioned in the thread.
- Eat right.
- Work out regularly(preferably outside)
- Maintain good sleep habits.
- Keep your stress in check
- Keep life in perspective
Health is far more important than the “R” you are trying to earn. Make sure you keep yourself fit to enjoy everything that money can get for you.
