A new study suggests that if you work less, you'll live longer!
Working more than 40 hours in a work week has been linked to negative changes to your health, while working fewer hours each week could help make you healthier, according to research from NYU Langone Health.
Here's how working less hours can improve your health:
- Less stress: Working more than 55-hours per week was associated with symptoms of anxiety and depression among people ages 44 to 66 who were employed full-time.
- Sleep more: A lack of sleep may lead to poor performance, memory and difficulty processing information.
- Improve your heart health: Working less could lower the risk of coronary heart disease among adults.
4. Spend more time with loved ones: They can help combat loneliness and encourage a person to engage in leisure activities and exercise.
