Symptoms Of Overworking And How To Deal With Them

  1. Lack of energy post-work: This can be dealt with by separating your work and personal life and organizing your tasks and priorities ensuring the important stuff is covered. Use an app to track your work, making sure you are not working after the day is over.
  2. Insomnia: Lack of sleep is a common symptom and one needs to do regular cardio or Yoga to induce sleep. A cup of hot tea also helps. Many of us don’t even realize we are sleep deprived and need to go to bed early (without a smartphone), giving full rest to the brain.
  3. Distraction: A constantly distracted mind can be curbed by a good night’s sleep, and by making a to-do list of important stuff to do.

Minimizing Stress And Burnout

  1. Sticking to a rigid schedule: Make your to-do list and stick to it. Prioritize your important tasks that provide maximum impact, and leave the stuff like replying to emails, or reviewing drafts to some other day.
  2. Exercise: Doing regular exercise produces important chemicals in the body like endorphins, dopamine and serotonin, improving our health and mood in numerous ways.
  3. Me Time: Bring your mind at ease by sitting and relaxing, doing absolutely nothing. These techniques of self-care, like meditation or not doing anything particular, helps us balance our mind, body and soul.

Overworking: Addicted To Work

Overworking: Addicted To Work

Overworking is defined as indulging in work activities beyond your physical and mental capacity by increasing the workload and number of hours. It usually happens when the organizational structure is gamed to promote deadline-oriented work without providing adequate human resources.

Organizations ensure that the workers provide them with the required output at every cost, giving efficiency and project completion top-priority.

Health Effects Of Overworking

We forgot long ago that health is more important than money.

  • Sleep deprivation and heart disease are the two most common and serious health issues due to overworking.
  • Other common physical and mental problems due to overworking are high blood pressure, migraines and ulcers.
  • Many of these are related to stress and anxiety and result in a lack of focus, fatigue and burnout.

Overworking: Social Aspects

Many companies encourage overworking and employees feel that they are in a race to achieve more, and might get fired otherwise.

  • Our need to be 'well-off' socially distorts our thinking.
  • Many of us are aggressively and passionately attracted to money, and not the simple joys of life.
  • We need to change our priorities and work towards happiness, not accumulating wealth or indulging in consumerism.
