I would start this article with a quote I am certain you won’t see anywhere else: “Your job is not your priority, it’s your well being, your health is your priority and that includes your devotion to whom or whatever your concept of God is.” Many of us live our lives to please the external forces, i.e. we seem to take better care of the materialistic things in our possession and neglect our health until it is way too late.

When we say “Till death do us part”, I don’t think many people take into consideration that death can happen at any time, even a minute after you read this sentence.
