4 Ways Gen-X Entrepreneurs Can Stay Fit, Productive & Effective

Forbes | February 16, 2017

Gen Xers make up 55 percent of all start-up founders. They personify “driven” in the business world, but when it comes to their health, many Gen Xers are slacking.

People in this age group (late 30s to early 50s), including entrepreneurs, aren’t doing enough to take care of themselves, according to a recent MDVIP Health and Longevity Survey. For example, the study found only half of Gen Exers have had an annual physical in the past five years. Two out of three admit they should be exercising more, eating better and managing their stress. One in three actually avoids going to the doctor out of fear of finding something wrong.
