I worked at a company for most of 2019 that would consistently work me > 70 hour works. My mental health diminished. I was angry and agitated all the time, to the dismay of everyone who came into contact with me.
In addition, my physical health diminished. I started eating foods that were more convenient, staying up later, and generally not exercising.

I learned from this experience, that you can't be successful if you're not taking care of yourself first. That applies to your professional and personal life.
