With all the stress which the everyday world puts on people, it does not surprise me that so many people want to try and escape the real world and disappear on holiday. This isn’t a bad idea as most employers actually ensure that the “hardcore” workers who often refuse to take leave actually take leave.
Companies do this for a reason, and that reason is to ensure that their employees aren’t being overworked or overly tired. I know that this is a bit of a contradiction in itself and if these companies had their way the workers would not have as much leave as they already do, (which is next to nothing) but the fact still remains that according to labor laws employees are only meant to work for a certain amount of time and a certain amount of their working time equates to leave which they are obligated to take.
What are some of the negative side effects of overworking?
Most people feel that they have to put in long hours in order to become successful which in reality is part true and the other part false.
The truth behind the long hours is the idea that the more hours you put in the more work you can get done, which in theory will allow your bosses to see that you are an asset to the company rather than a liability because you can’t get work done.
This being said the amount of work done does not always equate to a 1 to 1 ratio like so; time = work done.
As I mentioned before this is just a general equation that most people find to be true, however in some cases if you are good at your job you should be able to complete more work in the time provided which is what you want to be doing in order to ensure that you get a promotion or raise.
The negative effects of overworking are often all physiological and in some cases physical.
The physiological effects that overworking your employees can lead to server depression and in some cases can even lead to suicide attempts.
This steams from employees not being able to handle the large amounts of work which they are often presented with.
Which is why labor laws make it important for companies to give their employees time off to reconnect with the outside world and their families.
How is this treated?
Many people will go onto anti-depressants in order to cope with the immense workload, however, the best way to treat overworking is to go on holiday to a place like Blue Mountain Ontario and Blue Mountain Ontario Timeshares.
Where you will be able to take the family or yourself on a holiday to get the proper R&R that you need in order to become the best in your business field.
So remember taking a holiday is one of the best things that you can do to succeed in the business world.
