11 hour plus shifts a day will increase depression
Working over 11 hours a day may put you at a greater risk for depression, says a recent report published in PLoS ONE.
The researchers monitored 2,123 individuals for roughly 6 years and found that working 11 or more hours a day puts you at 2.3- to 2.5-fold increase for experiencing a major depressive episode than those working a standard 7- to 8-hour workday.
If you’ve been handling an insane workload lately, how exactly do you know if you’re inching towards depression? Stay on the lookout for the following symptoms:
Changes in appetite, disturbed sleep, fatigue or loss of energy, poor concentration or indecisiveness, feelings of worthlessness and suicidal thoughts or acts, says Marianna Virtanen, Ph.D., lead study author and an epidemiologist at the Finnish Institute of Occupational Health.
