A "bad" job could potentially lead to bad health. 😞 👉 Here are five ways that disliking your job can cause physical and mental health consequences:
1. By inducing sedentary behavior. 🤷♀️ Sitting all day is not going to be good for your health. Your job should allow you to take short breaks through the day to move around. 🏃♀️🏃♂️ Researchers have found that even a five-minute walk on an hourly basis can help counter these damaging effects. Furthermore, you may also consider performing desk exercises. 💻
2. By following you back home. ❌ In a recent study, researchers found that the expectation of having to keep checking work-related emails during non-office hours could contribute to higher levels of stress and anxiety. This can also affect family members who may feel they are not able to spend enough quality time together. ✔ Consider turning off your notifications to create a healthy work-life balance!
3. By interfering with sleep, social life. 😴 Poor sleep can also make you less sociable and more irritable, increasing feelings of isolation. Unpredictable shifts and irregular timings can reduce sleep quality which, over time, has been linked to a higher risk of chronic diseases. For those who work in the law enforcement or at hospitals, inadequate sleep can have concerning effects on work performance. 🔥
4. By grouping you with toxic co-workers. Being around a boss or coworker you don't get along with can be damaging for your mental health in the long run. 😲 Many employees have reported that their immediate supervisor is a significant source of stress.
5. By affecting your eating habits. 🍬🥤 Studies have shown that many workplaces offer unhealthy and processed food options such as donuts, pizza, soda, bagels, brownies, cake, and candy. We know that stress can make some people crave sugar — all the more hard to resist when snacks are offered for free. 🆓 ☀ If you are looking for a lifestyle change, please contact our office for support. ☀
