Working environment has a great impact on the health of each person. A bad working environment will cause anxiety, depression and long-term health effects.
Here are some signs that you are in a bad working environment, how they affect your health and what you need to do to help yourself.
Too much workload
You are given a workload by day, by week, which is almost impossible to accomplish despite the most effort.
This may cause increased anxiety and depression, says Reader’s Digest citing psychiatrist Dr. Mayra Mendez at the Providence Saint John Children and Family Development Center.
Long-term consequences may include poor mental health, reduced work efficiency, and exhaustion.
To limit this situation, Dr. Mendez recommends that people focus their work on a day or a week to try to solve it, and schedule a proper rest.
Do not work more than 8 hours a day
If it is not due to the nature of the job, occupations require more than eight hours to work, they should not stay behind after work, experts say.
Studies show that people who work overtime for long periods of time face a higher risk of depression.
In the meantime, the benefits of doing the right rest are to help stimulate thinking, ability to light and solve problems effectively, says Mendez.
Feeling extremely anxious all day working
A bad working environment will cause anxiety, stress and possibly harm to health. They cause stomach pain and stress every time they come to work, says psychotherapist Lindsay Henderson to Reader’s Digest.
How does bad working environment affect health?
To minimize the impact of stress, people need healthy habits, sufficient sleep, cleanliness and regular exercise, Henderson added.
May be dismissed at any time
A workplace characterized by the fact that employees are hired, laid off, and constantly changing creates a sense of insecurity, pressure, and anxiety for the employee.
Continuous anxiety with uncontrolled things can cause long-term health and mental problems. Maintaining balance and staying healthy is the best way to do it.
Focus on what you yourself can control, such as eating properly, exercising regularly, and taking good care of your health, experts warn.
