Shift Work Disorder Due To Long-Working Hours


It is often witnessed how people give in to the work pressure by putting in extra hours at work. Without paying much heed to the health, it is common for office goers to get under work pressure and display several symptoms of illness. Shift-Work Disorder is one of the common problems faced due to overexertion at work. This syndrome hampers an individual to a great extent, which affects the mental health and performance of an employee.

Depression is one of the common forms of illnesses witnessed due to overexertion. Lack of time for sleep, irregular sleep habits and constant stress are enough to put an individual through a great deal of mental harassment, leading to depression. Also, performance deterioration is one of the major causes of Shift Work Disorder. It is a myth when we say that working for longer hours leads to better productivity. In turn, working for long hours without any break can lead to several health concerns.
