Going to work in the morning, working till late nights has become the trend these days. In India, where the heart disease and diabetes is on the rise, there’s one quiet health concern that doesn’t get much public attention: fatigue or stress. To lead a luxury life, most of the people in India work for too much of time to earn lot of money.
Over one in five Indians aged between 18 and 64 (22%) are concerned about being tired more than anything else, according to a recently released research report by Mintel. If we look at females alone, the number spikes to 25%.
Now a days people are neglecting their health and spending more time on earning money. Work-life balance is a joke, with employees working around 2,195 hours on average every year, far more than those in most other countries.
Indian millennials work for about 52 hours which is way more than what citizens of other countries. In 2016, India ranked 4th on the most vacation-deprived nation list.
Most of the workplaces officially demand 8-9 hours a day from employees and it is often seen that the work load given to them is not possible to finish within office hours. True that a few night shifts and late working hours might help you get noticed at work but is it really worth falling sick for?
