Checking Work Email at Home is BAD For You [POLL]
Technology at our finger tips may not be the best thing for us, especially when it comes to work. Because of smart phones we now can work all the time. A new study says that's really really bad for our health. A new study from Germany found that checking your work email at home could cause a lot of health issues and actually kill you.
A study of 57,000 people found that more than half worked outside their normal hours - a trend driven by the ease of accessing work documents on smartphones and computer tablets.
The researchers found that those who worked in the evenings and at weekends were more likely to complain of insomnia, headaches, fatigue, anxiety and stomach problems.
The study found that because of our smartphones and tablets we actually work 2 hours more a day! Yikes!
The reason? We all need time for our bodies and our minds to relax!
