re: Has your job impacted your physical health? VIEW POST


Mental health is definitely important. At one of my previous jobs, I had to stop doing overtime every day (to the chagrin of my manager), I actually took sick time when I needed it and used holiday when I wanted it, not when it was convenient for them (obviously being at least courteous towards releases and not taking the mick).

Nowadays it's the weight I struggle with. I also broke my leg at the start of last year and I'm still trying to bounce back from that. I've gained a few stone over the last year even though my diet is fairly acceptable.

I would like workplaces, especially those that have sedentary jobs like ours, to really promote activity and allow time to go to the gym/run/bike or whatever, as it would be beneficial to them as a company too.
