Worked to death

On this Friday, allow me to present evidence as to way you shouldn’t be working so hard.  Working overtime will kill you. 

According to a new study published in the European Heart Journal, people who regularly clock OT and work 10 or 11 hour days potentially increase their risk for heart disease by nearly 60%. 

The authors of the study cite a whole bunch of reasons as to why this is true, but it’s the usual culprits…stress and anxiety which likely grows the longer you sit at your desk.  Less time to exercise, relax and unwind are mentioned too.

In the end, it all comes back to the buff broad mantra (I know you’re probably getting tired of it, but I’m never going to stop saying it)…EVERYTHING IN MODERATION!  This applies to work, diet, exercise, etc.  Your life NEEDS balance.  Too much of anything (whether good or bad) isn’t always the best thing.
