All Work And No Play Can Spell Trouble On The Job
I know a lot of people who have been waiting for this one for a long time! According to a new study, working too hard at work is detrimental not only to your health but also to your career. BAM! Take five, smoke 'em if you got 'em, chill out for now, be back in 20!
Results from the study showed that the negative effects of working too hard outweigh the positive ones. (What about "keep your nose to the grindstone?" )
Researchers say working too hard can cause stress and fatigue, a negative effect on your health, which can then cause someone to have a poor outcome at work and as a result, a negative effect on your career. (Or, you could work hard, stand out by achieving more and be a big success, no?)
The results suggest that it's okay to take a middle ground at work and let yourself relax more often than not. (The Cut)
Does this ring true for you?
