Apparently, I don’t heart me
I work a lot.
And (like it’s a big secret here at LIAC?!) lately I am working more than ever.
I say I don’t mind.
It’s not long-term.
But I kind of mind.
And Mr. Cookie REALLY minds.
For all of the good reasons you’re already thinking.
According to a new study, I’m screwed.
See, a bunch of big brains over at the Finnish Institute of Occupational Health and University College London pooled their gray matter to do some serious CSI-type researchification on the long-term damage being overworked can do.
It was no great revelation that being overworked is bad for you.
That’s the kind of 2+2 shit I can work out in my own head.
What was just the teensiest smidge of uh oh was reading that people (like me) who work more than 10 hours a day (HAHAHAHA – only TEN? Fucking lightweights!) are about 60% more likely to develop heart disease or have a heart attack than people who clock just seven hours a day.
I am so screwed!
The study followed more than 6,000 British civil servants with no history of heart disease for an average of 11 years.
During the study, a total of 369 people had heart attacks (some of them fatal) or were diagnosed with heart disease after seeking medical attention for chest pain.
I AM SO FUCKING SCREWED!!
