We all know we should push back when work wants us to stay on email after hours . . . but we don’t. So make sure your boss somehow hears about this study today . . . it might be the only way to change their mind.
A new study out of Germany found that checking your work email at home could kill you.
Researchers studied more than 57,000 people and found people who checked work emails and sometimes wound up doing work at home were more likely to have heart problems, headaches, anxiety, insomnia, fatigue, and stomach issues.
The theory here is pretty simple . . . when you’re “always on,” you never give your body and mind a chance to relax and recuperate. Over time, all that extra stress adds up until your body just can’t handle it anymore.
So Keep Calm and Shut It Down.
