Overtime

Hearts hurt by overtime

If you’ve ever thought, “This overtime is killing me!” you may be right. A study of British civil servants looked at more than 6000 people from 1985 to 2004. It found that working three to four hours overtime on a regular basis (but not one or two hours) caused a 60 per cent increase in the risk of heart disease. There could be many reasons for this connection. Working overtime was associated with other type A behaviour like aggression, competitiveness, and tension. Alternatively lack of sleep and less time to unwind may be a factor. Then again it may be that people who work overtime also tend to attend work when sick and not seek medical help. Even controlling for all these possibilities the link between overwork and heart disease remained. So if your boss is working you too hard, tell them they are breaking your heart.Meanwhile if you visit Meijer Ad that contains mostly likewise discounts with Winn Dixie Ad you surely have a range like ALDI Ad.
