Can Too Much Work Really Be Healthy For You?

For those of you, like me, who have to steal time here and there just to have a fighting chance to finish your "to-do" list by the end of the work day, you may already be enjoying a health benefit and not even know it.

A German study has found people with highly challenging jobs that require boatloads of responsibility and just as many social demands could be less likely to be diagnosed with various types of dementia or Alzheimer's disease.

Scientists compared the work histories of some 200 dementia patients with as many seniors who didn't have it. Dementia patients were less likely to have had challenging work experiences or high possibilities for control at their jobs than those in the comparison group, according to the study. And, they were more likely to work in positions in which there was a high risk of making errors.

This study is another great example of something I write about often on my Web site: Stress is a constant in everyone's lives and you can't avoid or eliminate it. I strongly believe the problem isn't stress itself. It's your body's ability to tolerate it.

Since you cannot eliminate stress, you can work to provide your body with tools to compensate for the bioelectrical short-circuiting that can cause serious disruption in many of your body's important systems. For example, energy psychology tools like the Emotional Freedom Technique, a form of psychological acupressure, based on the same energy meridians used in traditional acupuncture to treat physical and emotional ailments for more than 5,000 years, but without the invasiveness of needles.
