Read This BEFORE You Take a New Job

Posted in : Health & Wellness,In the News

Office

Many of you are getting ready to graduate soon.  This information was just released and should be considered BEFORE you take a new job after graduation.  It could save your life … really.

In the News …

A new study of office workers in England found that employees working eleven hour days or longer were 67% more likely to develop heart disease than those working seven or eight hour days.  The study was published in the April 5, 2011, issue of the Annals of Internal Medicine.

My Take on the Information …

This is not all that surprising to me.  We know that working longer hours is likely more stressful and does not allow for as much time to participate in stress relieving activities like exercise and meditating.  With 70 – 90% of all visits to primary care physicians being for stress related illnesses, we can fairly conclude that stress is the root of most illness.  The results are disturbing, but certainly not shocking.

Is this preventable?

Life has few guarantees, but I’d say you would be better off in the long run if you follow these two strategies:

1.  Find a job that does not require you to work more than seven to eight hours per shift.

2.  Do not compromise the daily stress management tools I teach in my coaching program and in my lectures.

Wishing you less stress and abundant success in your life,

Chad
