Working tirelessly hard and working for hours can be draining to the body and the brain. Working hard is not necessarily bad however if stress is incorporated it becomes a problem to your health, as much as working long hours may help you climb the career ladder it could also back slide and result in taking a steep toll on your health.
Chronic diseases often tend to find a dwelling place in your life when you are unable to balance aspects of your life especially when long hours are exercised for many years in your working environment. Pushing yourself beyond what your body can consume could affect you in such a way that fatigue takes preference of everything you find to do.
Signs that accompany straining yourself at work is when you experience back pains and shoulder pains becoming more sever. This is when you should know that those pains could be linked with your office setup specifically the chairs in your office. Sitting in the wrong chair for hours can damage your neck, back and shoulders as a lot of pressure is pressed down on your upper body.
This also depends on the chair you decide to use in your office. It is wiser to consider how comfortable you will be when seated, sometimes the chairs we consider the best tend to be the most strenuous and never good for our health. It has been proven that those who worked longer hours are more exposed to more than twice the risk of getting rheumatoid arthritis or osteoarthritis and those who work flexible hours have a lower risk of heart disease, lung disease and depression.
Pacing your work efforts and balancing your work life is a good thing altogether as you adopt the ability to consider your health and your working environment. This is to allow you to enjoy a much healthier life at work full of liveliness and zeal as you consider a comfortable way of working.
