Young Adult’s Job Satisfaction Can Impact Health In Middle-Age

HealthDay (8/22, Mozes) reports new research found being unsatisfied at your job in your 20s and 30s can “undermine your health by mid-life,” but having work you enjoy could “pay health dividends.” The study found that disenchanted worker had “worse mental health” by their 40s, and “were more likely to suffer from routine sleep trouble and anxiety compared with satisfied or increasingly satisfied participants.”

Researchers surveyed more than 6,400 men and women participating in a long-running study that began in 1979. According to the researchers “physical health appeared to suffer among those who consistently expressed low satisfaction with work or whose satisfaction fell over time.”
