The effect of work problems on mental state of an individual

A job is good for our bank account but it may not be so good for our well-being. After an average working day, we feel our muscles are stiff and our head can crack anytime. Such symptoms suggest that our body is not all right with everything we did during a day. Struggle with taking enough fluid in and eating a home-made lunch? Say hello to gastrointestinal problems and constipation. Sitting as if you are chained to the desk? Welcome an obtruded blood circulation in lower limbs. But these are just the direct physical consequences an average sedentary job can give us. There is more to the experience of people who work in a really stressful environment.
Every person has their own level at which an ordinary job becomes intolerable. Someone may start a hysteria communicating with customers, someone else may experience a severe depression having witnessed how people die in the field or in the hospital day to day. Anxiety and depression may easily emerge due to the workplace factors. In most cases, people notice minor emotional dysfunction. Obsessive thoughts about work experience or performance bring agitation that follows people everywhere. Isolation from individuals unrelated to work often makes it impossible to socialize going out with friends.
There are several reasons behind the conflict between ourselves and the workplace. Some people are workaholics unable to give the job a rest. The others are stuck in a workplace they hate and consider they cannot do any better. Nevertheless, all of us have to set some limits for everyone trespassing on our personal life. Workaholism is a very American trait, but there is no good sacrificing our personal space and mental health to work.
