Take This Quiz To Find Out If You’re Addicted To Work
Most people are aware that over-working is bad for our health, however most people are unaware of the potential physical and emotional consequences–including stress, insomnia, lower immunity and impaired relationships with family and friends.
But how, exactly, do you define “workaholic”? How much is too much?
In the Netherlands, people are actually getting sick by trying to stop working — a phenomenon called “leisure illness.” Workers there are apparently so conditioned to overwork that, on weekends and vacations, they actually become ill from trying — without success — to relax and unwind.
Workaholics typically continue to work past the point of exhaustion, causing them to make mistakes and work even harder to fix them. They also find that when they get where they were so driven to be, there is often nothing there. This leads to a chronic cycle of obsessive goal-chasing which, in reality, is much like the hamster running on the wheel — frenetic movement that leads to nowhere.
After all, every job has different hours, requires a different set of skills and has a different level of intensity.
Well, researchers in Norway want to help you answer that question about yourself with a new, easy-to-take quiz called the Bergen Work Addiction Scale.
To find out whether you have a healthy or unhealthy attachment to your job, grab a pen and jot down “never,” “rarely,” “sometimes,” “often” or “always” in response to each of the following seven questions.
How often have you…
1. Thought of how you could free up more time for work?
2. Spent much more time working than you originally intended?
3. Worked in order to reduce feelings of guilt, anxiety, helplessness and/or depression?
