Depression And Job Burnout: You Can Work-up A Depression

The old saying is, "All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy."

It turns out that all work and no play also makes Jack a depressed, stressed out, sick boy.The Families and

Work Institute in New York surveyed more than 1000 families concerning work and the impact work has on their well-being. The results indicated that too much work and not enough play results in increased depression, stress, and health problems.

Forty-four percent of those surveyed felt over-worked.

Situations that increased the probability of feeling over-worked included having too many work related tasks to do in a short time and believing one's work is unimportant or of low value.

If a person enjoys their work they were less likely to feel over-worked.

Also, not taking vacations contributes to feeling over-worked.

If you are feeling depressed and burnout, taking some time off and playing can help. So have some fun!
