Overworked? Take a Lunch Walk, Stop Drinking (Coffee) Alcohol

Curated by CLAI

TIP OF THE DAY: Take a lunchtime walk to buoy your spirits and keep you energy levels up.

WORK LONG HOURS? DRINK TOO MUCH? Those working between 49 and 54 hours a week had the biggest risk of starting to overindulge.

  • Alcohol could be used to relieve stress, that Type A workers could end up in jobs with longer hours, or that there could be an associated link between demanding jobs, alcohol use and people with existing depression or sleep problems.
  • CEOs who end the day with a few glasses of pricey scotch and minimum-wage workers who throw back a few beers after their second shift are both more likely to over-drink than those who work fewer hours.

WHY SO JITTERY? One 20 oz Starbucks coffee = 2 shots of 5-hour energy = 25 Monster drinks = 12 cans of Coca-Cola = 21 Hershey’s Special Dark chocolate
