Burnt Out

 Work-related stress 'leaves us burnt out by just 32' was the headline in The Metro (17-9-20)

A study shows that carer burnout is most likely to happen at the age of 32.

Nearly a third of people feel too stressed or exhausted to go on at some stage, with half saying they have taken on too much and 58 per cent blaming longer working hours.

While half of those who get tired of work quit, 29 per cent would consider taking unpaid leave, a poll of 2,000 by flexible workspace provider The Office Group found.

In a world where we produce goods and services for need and not profit this would be a thing of the past.

The way we would run the world without the profit motive would mean our health would be so much better.
