This may come as a shock: Desk jobs can significantly shorten your life expectancy. It is time for a wake-up call. Your workplace can affect your physical and mental health in ways you may not realize.
Indoor air quality, for instance, can be a source of worries. Did you know that the office air could be dirtier than the air in the street? Just because you can’t see pollution and harmful particles, it doesn’t mean they are not there. Heavy workload is another common issue that can contribute to damaging your work/life balance.
Overworked professionals feel isolated from any supportive network, either friends or relatives. They are also more vulnerable to burnout and nervous breakdown. Unfortunately, as an employee, both air quality and workload are out of your control.
With the rise in working from home, it’s even more important to take your health seriously. However, there are healthy choices that you can make for yourself to make your experience of the workplace healthier.
