According to a number of research findings, the more we work, the worse we feel. This feeling poorly is due to constant mental, emotional, and physical excitation, resulting in fatigue, mood disorders, and generally poor health. This raises a disturbing question is work bad for our health?
Workers in developed countries like the United Kingdom, Canada, Spain, and Japan, do not work as long as Americans, who spend 1,778 hours working; however, this high number is exceeded in South Korea, where the number of hours worked averages around 2,193 hours.
Research on the effect of work on the human body has come to the unequivocal conclusion that, all things being equal, the more someone works, the more they indulge in unhealthy behavior, eating more, exercising less, and indulging in smoking cigarettes drinking beer, or indulging in recreational drugs. Conversely, those who work less showed healthier habits and behaviors.
