A new study at the Kansas State University warns that employees who work for more than 50 hours a week may be harming their mental and physical health. The study reports that well-being is not a priority for workaholics.
They found a relationship between workaholism and physical and mental well-being in a study conducted using the National Longitudinal Survey of Youth 1979. According to the panel, reduced physical well-being is measured by skipped meals.
They also found that workaholism was associated with reduced mental well-being as measured by a self-reported depression score. However, workaholics overwork because they feel that cost of not doing so becomes greater.
Workaholism is a disorder marked by progressive, excessive work activity of a person, losing the necessary balance between work and leisure for a healthy life.
The study was published in the journal Financial Planning Review.
