STRESS

IS YOUR JOB KILLING YOU?

“Take Control of Your Health Naturally”

Is Your Job Kill You?

It’s no secret that working long hours can take a toll on your’ mood, stress level, and even your waistline. Now, a new study suggests a hidden heart danger, as well. People who put in more than 55 hours a week on the job may have an increased risk of developing an irregular heart rhythm linked to stroke and other health problems as compared to those who work 40 hours or less.

Job stress can fray nerves, keep you up at night, and contribute to health problems such as heart disease and depression. Chronic job strain can put both your physical and emotional health at risk. If someone has difficulty with this balance then they’re going to be cutting back wherever they can including on important components of a healthy lifestyle, like getting enough sleep, shopping for and preparing healthy food, and exercising

When someone is stressed at work, they could have a higher pulse, hypertension, higher blood pressure. If these things happen chronically, they can worsen as well as worsen an existing condition. Feeling a lack of control in the workplace or not enough support from a supervisor may lead to feelings of helplessness, which in turn can spiral into depression. This is associated with poor health conditions and increases in mortality rates from all causes.

Take control: Prioritize your workday. Go home to your family. Take time for yourself. Your life is worth it.

    Interesting blog post. But what if I am passionate about my job. And I love to put 60 hours per week to improve it and make as much as I can. Of course, I feel tired but I am happy when I put so much effort in it. What suggestion then? Still, try to avoid 60 hours per week or keep working as I use to be? Thank you for answers.

    Regards, Gedas

      I am very passionate about my job and I can appreciate wanting to own it, improve it and make as much as you can. However, you will find that there is much more to life than your job and one day you will wake up feeling very empty, lonely and unappreciated because you have not invested time and energy into anything else but your job. Being healthy is about investing time in all six parts of you not just one or two (please refer to https://callmothernature.com/physical-health). Please don’t be fooled into thinking that even though your needs may be met through your job now that it will always be that way. Your needs are forever changing. These are fantastic questions. Thank you so much!
