Are other important areas of your life taking a back seat to your work?
Being dedicated to and enjoying your job, are both admirable and important, but sometimes, individuals can fall into an unhealthy pattern in which work becomes their only interest and priority. Workaholism is defined as an addiction to one’s work which may bring about numerous adverse consequences such as strained relationships, mental illness, burnout, and physical health concerns.
Do you or a loved one notice:
- You think of ways to clear up more time in your schedule for extra work
- You spend more time on a task or at work than initially intended
- You work in order to lessen feelings of guilt or negative affect
- Others have advised you to lessen your working hours to no avail
- The idea of not being able to work is stressful and anxiety-provoking for you
- You de-prioritize other areas of your life such as hobbies, relationships, leisure activities, friends, family, or exercise because of your work
- Your excessive working has had a negative impact on your relationships, your emotional, or your physical health
